I got this as a sample and it was already partially dried out before I even opened it.  This is the picture when I first got it.  Then within a month it was 1/4 down from where it was.  I made sure to screw the lid on it tight.  But no matter what I did It dried out.  its a decent color, but it goes on really streaky with the applicator or even a brush.  I tried using my finger once and more color stayed on my finger than it did on my lips.  I just wanted a nice flush of color, but all I ended up with was a mess.  the concept was nice, but it just did not work well for me.

This stuff is awesome but takes a minute to learn how to apply it evenly. This is a gel like formula and it is a stain, perfect for cheeks AND lips. It doesn’t take a whole lot to create the rosy cheek look you desire. There is no shimmer and looks fabulous over a B.B. cream!

A cute lip and cheek stain. Color is pretty but not a fan of the taste on my lips and doesn’t stay long. I like it as a blush. A little goes a long way. It is nice to carry it in my bag incase I need a quick blush but its not my go to product.

I received this in a Ipsy bag. I was skeptical about trying this due to the bad reviews on it. Well I did decide to try it, applied it before a concert as a lip stain. The color was beautiful after about two layers and it lasted all night (which was a pleasant surprise)! I actually enjoyed the formula, it dried down quick without making my lips feel dehydrated! I even went a purchased the full-size version because I am obsessed! I love to use this on days I’m using minimal makeup.

This product is a water-based stain, intended for use on lips and cheeks. I mostly use it on my lips, but I have tried it on my cheeks as well. It is sheer pink, and easy to work with because it doesn't stain as instantly as some other stains. You have some time to move it around. It doesn't stain as long as some I've used, but for the color, usability, and affordability I like it very much. The only reason I took a star away is because it's just not very long-lasting on me.

My natural lip color is very pale so I wanted to use this to put on as a quick wash of color to add life to my face when I don’t have makeup on. The color is soft and fresh but staying power is very minimal & it takes work to make the color even on both lips. For whatever reason my top lip never holds the color well & then to get the color to stay evenly distributed I can’t touch my lips together until it’s totally dry which takes about a minute. Not quite as quick & easy as I’d hoped it would be.

Probably one of the best lip stains in the market. Good for most skin tones. This can also be worn on the face. I do not recommend this over Foundation or powder as it will catch on to dry areas, making this product look patchy. It is very long lasting. Highly recommend to those who don’t wear a lot of makeup and want a little flush to the face.

It was like a weird jello texture which isnt the best feeling , the applicator wasnt the easiest to use so if i wanted a real carved shape of my lips i would use a brush instead . The tint this left behind was patchy which i didnt like and it stained a weird bright pink color but the product was buildable and lasted long. Personally i wouldnt buy this product again

One of my favorite lip stains for years. It drys so quick and leaves a beautiful red color. You can apply more for a deeper red. I think the balm is sometimes a forgotten brand. But this product is amazing. Even the mini has lasted me almost a year. The amount of product for the price is great.

Do you use stains more for your lips or cheeks?

Does this look horrible if you have somewhat dry lips? I tend to get a lot of creasing with other products

Does this feel gross on your cheeks because it's a gel? Does it work good on your lips too?

Has anyone tried this with lip primer? Is it only me or does this rub off easily ?
