Love this simple product. I have been afraid of stains in the past, but this one is the perfect amount of color & layers well. I use mostly for my lips, but it's nice as a cheek tint too.

Nice Product
Sampled

I enjoyed this product. I've never been very into stains due to their semi - permanent nature... WHAT?! I can't totally change my lip color at the drop of a dime?! However, I really liked the color of this product, it has great staying power and is perfect for those days when you are going for more of a natural look.

peachy

It has a light easy on feeling on the lips I just topped it with a clear gloss. It had an odd texture, but its a beautiful color and overall just great.

I'm not huge fan of lip stains anyway, but I did not care for the color or consistency of this product.

Loved it!
Sampled

It's a great lip stain. It's not too dark or bright, it's a great shade for all skin types and it isn't sticky or runny, you can add as much as you want but I find one swipe gives a nice pink/red glow

I love the stain. It brings out the natural color of my lips so I don't look too made up. I would but this again.

Overall a good product
Sampled

I was really excited when I opened my box to see that I got a lip stain! At first I was having mixed emotions about the first impression of the color (bright red) but once I applied it, it was very subtle and it reminded me of the benetint from benefit stain but, the only problem is that it only lasts for about and hour, after that there is really no sign of the tint. Unless you have a ton of breaks at school or work this product may not be the thing for you but in my case I think it is worth the re-appliying because of the beautiful finish it leaves on your lips.

sheer, long-lasting color

This stain applies lighter than the container appears. It is a great pink that lasts. I have only used it as a lip stain but have enjoyed the natural, fresh look it helps me achieve!

My go to stain!

I love that this stain gives you just enough color where it doesn't look like you're wearing anything. And it doesn't dry your lips out! This is my favorite one of all time

One of the best stains I've used
Sampled

This is a wonderfully handy thing to keep in you clutch or desk to touch up without looking like your trying. Give you a little color where you need it with no evidence! Like a secret weapon!! Don't use on chapped lips though... Disaster!
