I love this stuff. It's perfect for an on the go lip, an at home lip, a I don't give a poop lip, and those who can't keep lipstick on. This is perfect for summer. I apply a few coats, let it dry and top it with a lip balm and I'm good to go for hours. It's perfect for your beach tote or purse and is easy to apply. I have it in Persistant Pink (my fave) and Never Ending Nude. I might pick up a third today just for more variety.

First of all,this product will b drying on the lips- its a lip stain not a gloss stain or balm stain , like a marker you are painting your lips. With that being said, these are great if you are looking for color, they do dry fast so try to work quickly or you'll get streaks. Make sure to exfoliate before then put chapstick on and blend with your fingers. If you have pigmented lips the color may chnage but it will look more natural, like you ate a popsicle. These arent meant to be opaque, thats what a longwearing lipstick if for. Make sure to store them upside down so the ink can travel down, if you use these often they dry up in about 4 months. They are about $5 cheaper than most stains, wish they were $3 since i o through these quickly. But i do rreccomend these, NYCs best product.

I didn't like this at all. I exfoliated before applying and you wouldn't even have known it. This stain went on soooo awfully patchy and seemed to sink into the fine lines of my lips. Not to mention, this did no staining. Over the course of about an hour, I had patchy looking, dry looking, overall crappy looking lips. Ew!

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.
