My husband is thrilled that I found this product! I love a red lip for going out and typically once it's on, no kisses until the end of the night. But not with this tint! I just refresh it with a balm every now and then. Love the color. Love the price.
Finally! A red for me!
Stays on, WAY on, be careful--this tint is pretty permanent. The cherry syrup smell is nice but doesn't overpower you. I have pretty yellow-toned skin, so most reds look too artificial and awkward on my lips. This one works, still looking like a true red without the orange side-effects I'm used to. Like most tints, it'll grab onto dry spots in your lips so be sure to moisturize beforehand.
Splotchy and Settles in
I really wanted to love this tint, but it really underperformed. Although I loved that cherry syrup smell, the tint went on splotchy. Even if I applied it as evenly as possible, some places turned out darker than others, and in other places, it barely tinted it, even with multiple applications. Also, make sure your lips are super moisturized and exofliated, because this tint will grab onto dry patches and excentuate them.
Good for gradient lips
This stain is more pronounced and longer lasting than the benefit stain. It is perfect for doing a pouty gradient with just a dab in the center of your lips.
Disregard all the reviews who try to use it as a lip gloss !!!!
This product is a Korean brand. In Korean beauty, lip stain is only made to be used in the center of the lips and blended out for a gradient effect. ITS NOT INTENDED FOR THE WHOLE LIP. But, if that’s how you would prefer to use it, then do. It is watery but the color is great and I’ve been dying to buy the full tube for a year or so. It’s amazing if you are into kbeauty or gradient lips or even if you just want a subtle bit of color to your lips even with no makeup on.
