While I liked the color, I was not a fan of the texture or how my lips felt with it on. It had this weird tingly feeling that dried out my lips. It stayed out for an extended period of time, but was because it wasn’t comfortable to wear I likely wouldn’t purchase again.

This lip stain is cute! Not to harsh of a color, and is just pink enough to give your face a cute youth vibe. The pigment isn't as dark as you would think it would be. Light like a nice lip gloss is.

Review for: E.L.F. Lip Stain Gloss Fashionista 2 fl oz more...
This product isn’t pigmented at all. I bought it at target. It’s goopy and is overall a bad product and paid like $2 for it. It’s not easy to use, you have to work to spread the thick formula around. Would not repurchase.

Review for: Birthday Suit more...
This lip stain works ok. It has a good option of colors I currently own first date and fashionista. I find that they feel different on the lips. Fashionista is a soft creamy deep pink which feels a bit tacky and stays feeling tacky for a good 5 minutes then for the rest of the time it stays feeling a little thick on the lips which is a bit uncomfortable. However, the color is very pretty and opaque. First date is a brighter neon pink. It feels buttery when applied to the lips almost oily and is a bit sheer put with two applications it looks perfect. It doesn't feel tacky when drying and once dry it can hardly be felt on the lips. They both last quite a bit of time on the lips as long as there's no eating. Although I feel they are formulated a bit differently, I like them overall. I do recommend exfoliating and moisturizing the lips before using them because these stains can be drying on the lips.
Last thing, if you want the lip stain to stay, don't use the gloss because it will cause the stain to transfer which it does not do as long as there is no gloss applied over it.

Review for: e.l.f. Studio Lip Stain more...
This product was nice, but I felt that it wasn't long lasting like I had hoped. The price was great for the product I believe. But when I buy lip products my number one thing I look for is long lasting.

I love these lip stains from elf. I wish there were more colors to buy. I own all of them bc I love them so much. It's a matte lip stain that last quite a long time on me. I don't use the gloss end bc I like the matte finish. Doesn't dry out my lips or give me that ugly white line that occurs after awhile with other products. I highly recommend these if you are looking for a stain that lasts for a price that's affordable .

Review for: Birthday Suit more...
While I didn't care for this particular color, I also purchased this in Red Carpet, which seems to be more flattering for me. Reds, as most know, have a tendency to bleed or fade and can be a bother when eating, so I like to try stains. The color is pretty and the gloss is even prettier. I've had a love/hate relationship with most long wear lipcolor as they tend to wear off as soon as I put on whatever moisturizing element it comes with, and this is no exception. It did, however, do a decent job of staying put through two meals without having to reapply before I put on the gloss.

Review for: Lucky Lady more...
The color on the picture shows it as a coral pink, which i was sooo excited for, but when I received both tubes ( I ordered two) they were a tan/brown color. Although it isn't the same color I was expecting I found I liked the color it is. I use only the "stain" side of the tube because the gloss makes the longevity very short, but the stain side will last quite a while. I always apply two coats to ensure even color payoff. Overall a decent product, but not my favorite from E.L.F.
