I'm usually a lipstick girl, but this stuff was really nice - very subtle, and kept its color.

A little disappointed...

I loved the color when it was in the bottle, but after applying to lips it didn't go on quite as vibrant. Also left my lips feeling extremely dry.

I was very happy with the results I got after applying this stain to my lips and cheeks, it was very subtle but just enough to give my cheeks a little glow and my lips a little color. The downfall, and ultimate reason I would not purchase this is the HORRIBLE taste it leaves on your lips, for me, suffering thru the poor taste was not worth the result.

While this stain was very light, I thoroughly enjoyed the color. Very natural looking. Works great both on the lips and cheeks

I received this as a sample in my Birchbox and was apprehensive at first because I have had bad experiences with cheek stain in the past. I typically just go for a powder blush because I have trouble blending cheek stains to make them look natural. The consistency of this stain was blendable while still leaving the perfect hint of color! I tried it on my lips and didn't like it as much, but I have been using it on my cheeks every day and love it!

This lip/cheek stain has a chemical-like scent and taste, which is quite off-putting. In addition, it has a watery texture which disappeared right after I applied it to my lips.

Very disappointing!

The perfect finishing touch

I'm not a huge lipstick or gloss fan because of how greasy it makes my lips feel. With this product I get the color I want without oily feeling!

Doesn't go on evenly and doesn't have long wear, frequent application a must to maintain color
