Cute Dual-Use Stain!
Sampled

I've never had a stain that's dual-purpose for lips and cheeks before. I'm a little nervous to try this on my cheeks because it's very sticky like a lipgloss. But I think it's a pretty color and a nice consistency on my lips!

Excellent Color

This is an amazing product. The color is consistent and long lasting. I love how it is a lip stain versus a gloss. No goopy mess to worry about!

This is very versatile, and truly works! However, it does not last incredibly long when applied as a lip stain.

Pretty color

I liked the color of this stain and the wearability. The texture was a bit goopy for me. Not sure it's something I would want as a part of my normal beauty routine.

Prefect for someone on the run
Sampled

This product is easy to use and is unbelievably convenient. Who doesn't like a multipurpose product. Also the best part the consistency isnt odd. Sometimes w/ blush and lip products it clumps on your cheeks to much. This one is prefect.

Awesome once you get the hang of it
Sampled

I did not like this product at first. It had a weird gel like consistency and honestly I didn't understand how to use it. After a couple tries I fell in love! I was shocked at how long it lasts I woke up the next morning with still a pink hue to my lips. I also like that I can make the color as bold red as I want or leave it a subtle pink.

Excellent coverage

A plus product, usable on light to dark lips and makes for better results of lipsticks and lip glosses. I would use again.

Almost great
Sampled

I used this sample and while I did like the color stain, and the ability to make it darker as you apply more on the lips, I really didn't appreciate the look it gave on the cheeks. Easy to apply and use.
