Good color. Decent staying power but so very drying for the lips. If you regularly exfoliate your lips this would probably work for you.

It's pretty user-friendly as a felt-tip applicator; you can line and fill in your lips in seconds.Make sure your lips are exfoliated and clean before applying. If you skip that step, the application will not be even. Also, it's best to apply lip balm afterwards, so you don't cause any balm buildup on the applicator tip.There's a lot of pigment, even in the most neutral shade, which is called "purity." The color on the box swatch is NOT what comes out of the pen, however. It comes out as a much brighter pink tone. I can't imagine the other colors being very flattering for most people, so stick with the "purity" shade if this is your first one.What I like is you can control the intensity by layering or you can take it down a notch by blotting with a tissue before it's dry. Also, I found that any oil-based lip treatments you apply on top can cause some of it to rub off, too. I tend to prefer it not at full-intensity, personally, but even with some wiped off, there is plenty of color that enhances your natural lip tone. it's also terrific for layering with sheer glosses.If you like the full intensity, and use it on its own, it's bound to stay put for a long time. Probably at least four to five hours, on average.Even with its staying power, it is not difficult to remove with makeup remover or towelette. Just be sure not to use a towel you like, because it WILL STAIN. It is, after all, a lip stain. It is water-based, so that should come out with a detergent if you happen to forget. :)I love that this formula is super-easy to apply, sets quickly, doesn't require a second step, stays put, and isn't tacky/sticky or drying. I just wish it didn't have the department store price tag, but it's worth it. You'll get a lot of use out of it as long as you keep the cap on.At first I panicked when, after a few uses, my fairly-new pen was "drying out" and not applying, but that was easily fixed by storing the pen upside-down. :) Now it works consistently.I love this product!
