I like these better than the similar Revlon "just bitten" lip stain balms. Not only are they less expensive but they don't have the minty taste and feel which can irritate my lips. I have it in Honey Love which is MLBB and in Fresh Fig which is a bit more intense but still not "wow, you're wearing lipstick!"

I don't find that the stain lasts too terribly long which is why I've only given it 4 lippies. A bit longer lasting and it would be a five!

I really like these. I like the price, ease of use, and quality: natural looking, decently long wearing, not too drying, and they stain the lips in a natural way. I have Nude Chic, Peony, and Honey Love. I wasn't sure about Nude Chic at first as it is very brown toned, but it looks fine applied lightly and goes well over other shades.

Peony is a light toned pink that borders on too light for me but not quite, it's very pretty actually. I think these all wear well together, you can wear them over each other if you want. I'm quite fair and cool toned and I can't pull off too bright or bold colors, and these are perfect for me for every day because they are subtle.

Overall very pleased with the quality.

I love the AMOUNT of color this provides along with the moisture. It lasts a long time on the lips too. I talk about it on my quick reviews video series if youre interested!

Until now, my favorite lipsticks were typically in the $25-$40 price range. Yet I now find myself reaching for these over Dior, YSL, Guerlain and Shiseido. They feel natural on my lips, and look natural - it doesn't look like I'm wearing lipstick, but that my lips are actually colored that shade.

I have probably five or six different colors, and they are all long wearing and leave behind a beautiful stain. They do transfer a bit, but so do all the other lipsticks I wear, so no big deal for me. I always wear a layer of Blistex lip balm over this product, as my lips tend to dry out without it (regardless of what I am or am not wearing).

This is such an inexpensive product that I think everyone should at least try it out!

MY EVERYDAY GO-TO

I LOVE these lip stains. They are always in my purse.
They are easy to carry and apply on the fly, rather long lasting, and very affordable.

I have Nude Chic, and Candy Coral.
Candy Coral is on the pink side of a Coral. Nude Chic isn't as long lasting, but I don't mind reapplying. I don't use a mirror or anything, I apply it like chapstick.

To those complaining about the colors changing to a bright pink over time, here is the explanation : magenta is the most permanent of all pigments (think beets), and outlasts all the others. So after a while, all the pigments that are added to magenta to make a true red, a coral or a purple will fade, and you are left with... that magenta you didn't want. It has happened with all the stains I have owned. Stains work best with pink colors. If you want an all day purple/orange/cherry lip, go for a long wear cream or stick formula, you'll be happier. Just a little tip!

I absolutely adore these! I have them in every color and i think they are even better than the Revlon ones. For some reason the revlon ones make my lips break out in little bumps, but these ones are perfect and they last my entire work day even through eating and drinking.

So far I have only grabbed two of these, Fresh Fig and Honey Love, but I am definitely in love. They are moisturizing and very pigmented. Sometimes I use a bit of clear lip liner under to give them longer wear.

Honey Love is a MLBB on me and I love it! Fresh Fig is a medium berry shade and they are both absolutely gorgeous. They last up to 4 hours without reapplication. Although it is shiny upon application, these do dry down to a less glossy finish with a nice flush of colour.

I don't notice much of a scent to these. And I would love to pick up a few more of these!

I liked everything about this lippie, except the stain it leaves behind is SO BRIGHT. Okay, for example, I used Terra Crave, upon application this shade is gorgeous MLBB shade on my NC35 skin. But about 2 to 3 hours into wearing this, it leaves a stain, but the stain changes the color of the lippie! As in the stain is this super bright version of the physical product, and what the hell? I want it to remain the same! The reason I bought it was because I liked the shade, I don't want it to change half way through the day. It kind of pissed me off actually LOL. And this happened to me with Terra Crave, Candied Coral and Sweet Pink.

Anyway, nope. That is deal breaker for me. Even though they are creamy feeling, inexpensive, have a good amount of pigmentation, I like the scent and they don't dry my lips out, the STAIN part just...NO.

These are very good moisturizing,long lasting balm stains.I just really wish that they have more warm shades for my very warm fair skin tone.Many people on other make up beauty blogs describe the shade Candied Coral as an orange based coral(which is what true coral shades should be and really are,or at least a yellow pink) but as another reviewer on here lorsbsp said below my review it's really more of a coolish shade,it looks slightly cool on my hand and lips,I have to put the Wet n Wild Megaslicks balm stain in the shade See If I Carrot on top of it to make it warmer.I really wish someone on here would let me know if the Rock n Rouge shade is a neutral not cool toned red shade.

Also unfortunately Walgreens no longer sells the warm pretty shade Terra Crave.

I wish I could this 3.5 stars but I settled on 3 just because I prefer the texture/colors/scent of the Revlon ones so much more. However, these are awesome for the price and I would repurchase if I had a lipstick emergency and wanted something cheap and easy to work with. I have these in Rock n' Rouge and Candied Coral. Rock n' Rouge is great if you're new to red lipstick. It's a true red and it's glossy, but I don't find it garish or attention-grabbing. It's the one I reach for most if I feel like wearing red lipstick to work because it's noticeable but not too loud or bright.
Candied Coral I don't like as much but that's because I feel like my skin tone clashes with it. I feel this would be gorgeous on cool, light skin. I can only wear this with a nude lipliner under it so that it warms up and looks more natural and flattering. I always do this when I buy lipsticks that end up being too cool. It's a good color for spring.
I like that these don't cling to dry patches and the price is awesome. I would repurchase Rock n' Rouge because it's a great daytime/office red, but I would not repurchase Candied Coral and I'm not sure I like this product enough to try out more colors.
