I absolutely love this stuff. I bought Champagne Stain, and am planning to go get another color or so. I like that I can put it on and have time to touch it up/even it out with a finger before it dries. My favorite thing though is that I can put a clear gloss or balm over it multiple times a day without the color disappearing. My lips don't get dried out and they are a great color. For $5, it's definitely worth trying.

So glad I picked up this product on a whim. The color I purchased is Champagne Stain. It is very pigmented. No color transfer. Dries matte but doesn't look cracked or dry. Lasted through a dinner. An hour after that is was starting to fade but left more color on the edge of my lips like lipliner. I liked it so well that I purchased another color, Orange on the Go, which I don't recommend. The color shows on the hand but really only deepened the redness in my lips. If you have really lightly pigmented lips it may work better for you. As with any lipstain, I wouldn't wear this too many days at a time, as it will cause drying of the lips.

I have never hated a lip product more than I hate these lip stains. They're uneven, drying as all get out, and about as long lasting as a Popsicle in the desert. These are not worth the shelf space they take up at the drugstore.

DO NOT BUY!!! I am relatively new to the lip stain world, and this was such a complete let down. It went on very uneven, and extremely light. I had to do about 4 coats to get it anywhere close to the color I wanted, and the worst part......... IT DISAPPEARED IN LESS THAN AN HOUSE. Long lasting? Pffft. Don't waste the $5.

I own this product in Endless Spice #495 and Berry Long Time #498. This lipstain lasts forever, and I love it. One problem? It makes my lips drier than the Sahara Desert. My advice? Make sure to load up of lip balm before applying.

I have these In Persistent Pink, Never Ending Nude, and my newest purchase Orange On the Go. I have repurchased Persistent Pink and Never Ending Nude. I love these lip stains. I'm not a huge fan of wearing true pinks on my lips because of the way the color ends up looking on my yellow skin tone, but Persistent Pink is a very flattering shade on my lips. Never Ending Nude ends up looking a little bit more berry on me, which I still like. I love wearing orange/corals, so Orange On the Go was a must for me. The product was great, did not dry up on me, and lasted a decent amount (not 16 hours but long enough for me to be pleased) with little transfer.

I'm not too picky with lipstains however. If you're looking for something that is going to last the entire day on you, this product probably won't be for you. It can be drying (I don't have much of a problem because I usually keep my lips constantly moisturized. Give these a try. They're under $5, so it won't break the bank.

It works pretty well, but I find that I prefer wands to markers for applying the color.

OK so I bought 2 of these in Forever Fuschia (496) and Persistent Pink (490) maybe about a year ago, when there were really good reviews for this product. After using them, I think that the color does at least show up on your lips, but this product is VERY DRYING. My lips felt so dry that I took off this product almost immediately after application. Even after applying a layer of chapstick underneath the lipstains, my lips still felt relatively dry. They also don't last for 16 hours (thankfully) and I would not repurchase.

I am a bit baffled by all the great reviews on this product! I found it awful. The colours they sell are great - I'll give them that - and I made the mistake of just going out and picking up three, at 4 euro each. They come in marker form and while they swatch beautifully on your hand, they applied really patchily to my lips, despite having buffed them and tried to get them in as smooth as possible a condition before trying. The colour looked uneven and a bit sad, particularly with the lighter shades. Unstoppable Red worked out the best for evening out the colour after 3 coats. The largest problem is that applying this stain, I could literally watch my lips shrivel and dry up after a single coat. It is INCREDIBLY drying, and it feels a little burny. Slathering lip balm on after application only helps a little. The stain remains fairly transferrable.

Overall I cannot recommend these at all. If you want to give them a try, don't make the mistake I did and buy a few colours (or all the ones you like - they do look pretty!) . Buy one and see if it works for you first. :)
