I absolutely LOVE this lipstain! The color payoff is FANTASTIC! When applied to the lips, it has a bit of a fruity scent to it, and it stays on for quite a while. I would definitely buy this product again. However, the only downside is that it comes off after drinking something or licking your lips. Keep your lips dry, and it's color stays bright.

I like the marker packaging because its quick and easy to apply unlike the liquid types which i tend to spill. I like that it smells like fruit scented magic markers. It applies pigmented on the lips so it doesn't take a while for the colors to build up. Always keep the cap tightly closed as it will dry up like any marker.

I really like lip stains and this one is the best red I have been able to find in drugstore brands. The applicator is great and allows for both wide and precise application. The color wears fairly well, but I find I have to reapply ever hour or two to keep the color vibrant. Overall, though, I really like this stain and will probably try some other colors as well.

I love, love, love these! The price is so cheap and the color and lasting power is solid. If I layer lipstick and/or gloss over this, I'm set with bright red lips for the rest of the day. Yes, these do tend to dry out, but I have an unproven trick to keep these from drying out: I store it right side up until it starts to dry out (about 3 months), after which I store them upside down so they'll last another 2-3 months.

Love this product! It is well pigmented and has a thin tip for precise application. Definitely will repurchase in more every-day colors!

Let me just say: WOW. Seriously, guys this is one of the best lipstains out there better than the high end brands as well. Lasts longer than all other lipstains (stila, revlon, benetint, staniac, covergirl, smashbox) out there even my special food dye I make!
I'm not sure if it's just me because it's one of the first marker type stains I've started using. I usually use the liquid gel like but I feel the marker is easier to use.
I bought all the colors except for two one being red and the other being fushia (hot pink) but many which are unwearable to me because they are SO very bright or dark and I prefer the natural colors. Anyways, my three favorite are never ending nude (please, god don't let this be discontinued and let it forever remain in my life: ameen) 2. Champagne which is a medium pink (looks perfect with my brown skin tone, love it! 3. endless spice which is a sheer red. You can layer these to make it look darker/brighter. But you can layer on the never ending nude and it looks perfect. It's the perfect nude. Mostly rose color looking (earthy pink) with hints of brown in it. This stain lasts through a meal YES. YAY! I never found one that does so I'm so happy to discover this. I find that the Nude color lasts longer on me but I believe it's because I layer that one on while I only put one or two layers of the other stains. It lasts 3 hours. Probably 4. Just put a lipbalm on and your good to go after the stain. This stain- doesn't even dry out your lips as much as the others! But I just love lipbalm so I put that on too to make it look like the perfect lips. GO buy the NEVER ENDING NUDE! Oh yes, and the price = AWESOME. I love that it's so cheap because that was the only reason as to why I was able to buy all the colors!!!

Very surprised with the NYC lip stain. I own a couple different drug store lip stains (Palladio, Revlon). Overall, I would say this is my favorite. I, unlike most, actually prefer the felt tip stains as compared to the balm-like stains like Revlon's new one. The pigment with this stain is amazing, it has good staying power (pretty sure 16 hours isn't right, but it last quite some time), and it's cheap. I paid about $4.50 for it at Target. I'm very happy with this product. I bought Forever Fuchsia and I plan on buying more colors soon.

After reading the rave reviews on MUA, I finally bought NYC's Smooch Proof lipstain in Champagne Stain. Boy, am I in love (so far!) It is WAY better than my old Revlon Just Bitten (which got really gross and smelly, and wouldn't even stay on as long). For the record, I have also owned a CoverGirl lipstain, and it was pretty good. But NYC, for the low price of $4.99 CDN + tax, does the job best of them all! The staying power is awesome -- I went through three hours of intense Quidditch training at university, and my lips were still a bright healthy pink after! Amazing!
Out of all three lipstains I've owned so far, this one was the least drying and stayed on the longest. And it's also very pigmented -- Champagne Stain goes on as a bright dark pink that can look dramatic, but much more natural than lipstick. Packaging is no-fuss and the tip is pointier than either Revlon or CoverGirl, which I like. Can't beat the quality for such a low price! Will definitely purchase again!

These lipstains are amazing. They beat the heck out of the Revlon ones, in my honest opinion. The tip is thinner and more pointed for better lining, and the color lasts all day. I went to McDee's with my boyfriend, had nuggets, some fries and a drink (mind you greasy food) and the lipstain was completely in tact afterwards. I purchased in Persistent Pink (very natural and neutral pink), Forever Freesia (purple toned pink), Never Ending Nude (a slightly pinkish nude), Champagne Stain (a bold red toned pink), and Berry Long Time (a deep purple berry). I was happy with all colors. They are also very moisturizing. Highly recommend.

This is. Amazing. This is now my favourite drugstore lipstain.
I now own a multitude of drugstore lipstains (from Revlon, Maybelline, Cover Girl, and NYC) and I have to say: this is, by far, the BEST.
First off, all the drugstore lipstains seem to be similar in quality (though Revlon's still strikes me as particularly bad), and all generally apply a little unevenly, have a tendency to settle into the dry patches on your lips, and fade very strangely. What sets NYC's apart is the price! It's about $4.99 Canadian at Walmart (it came to $5.65), which is substantially less (about half) than what you'd pay for the other brands, and does the same job.
Zero transferring, vibrant colour (I have this in shade 494 "Smooch-proof" apparently, though I think it was fuchsia something or other at the store), fruity scent (not incredibly pleasant at first sniff though), more moist than the other lipstains, mostly matte finish (though I do still prefer the finish of Maybelline's), and the price!!!! The price cannot be beat.
Can't really go wrong if you need something that won't transfer and might actually stay put for awhile ('bout 6 hours I'd say).
