I was really hoping the color of this stain would be deeper and last longer. I love it for my cheeks, it gives me a nice glow that lasts all day-ish (as long as I need it to last at least, I have reapplied once or twice). I love the way it looks on my lips when I first put it on, but find that it does not last. I usually have to reapply it every two hours or so to my lips. It is a good stain, and I like that it isn't creamy. It smells amazing, like a bouquet of roses, which I love. There are stains that are easier to use though, it's tricky to use on your cheeks. As soon as you get the hang of it though it's a very nice cheek color.
