Great base for lip color
Sampled

I liked how this gave me a nice base underneath lip gloss or a pinky lipstick shade. Definitely can't be worn alone, but I loved the color and lasting power.

A great new find!
Sampled

I have never used a product with his texture before so I wasn't expecting much. To my surprise it gave my lips a nice natural reddish tint. Lips didn't get dry or feel weird. I usually applied some clear moisturizing gloss to give it a nice shine. Tiny lasted all day. I didn't use it for my cheeks so I can't say much about that. Definitely a product I would purchase.

I totally love this lip stain! It leaves a soft, subtle, pink hue on my lips and lasts through my morning coffee!

Long lasting...
Sampled

I really liked this one. The color is a fresh rosy pink that isn't exactly natural looking, so I don't wear it all the time, but it also isn't garish or overdone. I like it for a pop of fun color on special occasions. Stain stays put.

Really is a hint of tint
Sampled

Like this color, hint of tint. Doesn't seem to last very long but I looks pretty with lip gloss. May last longer with a primer on the lips first. :)

Perfect Lip Stain!
SampledPurchased

I had never used lip stain before, but after using my sample of this, I am so happy to have received it! I had to get a full size one! I love this product, because it is very light, and stays on most of the day. You can use this stain to add a little color to your face, and for lips, you can use it under a clear gloss on fancier occasions! Highly recommend this!

I like the way this feels when applied. It is good to layer twice anymore and I felt it was too much.

Move fast if you use it on your cheeks!
Sampled

I actually love blush, especially a cream, hadn't ever tried a "stain". Loved it, it lasted all day and looked natural, but word of advice, go very very fast, it starts to dry quickly. It was fine on my lips, but liked it better on the cheeks!
