Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Lip Stain I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the elf lip stains. They are bright, and go on so easily.I have 5 colours. They really do last a long on my lips and they last a long don't run out as quickly as some stains I have used. Buy them! They are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price. I had ordered two lip stains from this line in Fuschia Fusion and Nude Nectar and the pictures are very close to the true color. The 'stain' part of this product does exactly what its title says it would. However- the process of applying the lip stain feels like I'm applying Crayola marker on my lips. Great product for the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good! At first... I guess... I bought this at Target and I got 2 uses out of it, then the color just faded. The pigmentation was awesome! I've never seen a lip stain do this and it was strange... also it didn't really want to apply... like I felt I was drawing with a dried-out marker on my lips, pressing so hard to get the color out. True, it is only $2 but I didn't realize I'd only get 2 uses out of two dollars... I guess that's a good value, but still.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from streaky I just got this last night because it was on sale so I thought I'd try this out. It has good pigmentation but the tip of the brush is very hard which makes it difficult to apply. I got the color berry blush and I love it but it goes on very streaky and it doesn't look good :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting Found my new lip treatment. I am impressed. Most lipsticks just do not make it on me, as they are gone within the hour. Not so with this.. I put it on in the morning and it was all day color. Dark when you first put it on .. yet fades evenly as the day wears on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! (Advanced user, tons of tips!!) I had bought this in the Hot Tamale shade. In my photo, you all can see that this can layer to a very vivid shade. The key to getting the most color out of any lip stain is to layer it, letting each coat dry completely before adding the next. If any of you remember working with water colors as a child, working with lip stains is almost the same. I think I had gone to 6 layers in total, but I wanted to be sure my upper and lower lips matched; my top lip is a bit darker than my lower lip.With that said, I enjoy how this lip stain coats. In order to get the most out of the lip brush, I held it to the side and used it like I would a water color paint brush (I'm also an artist, so it's what I do naturally). I can get an even coating if I do short, quick strokes. I like the outside first, then fill it in, much the way I work with a lip crayon. If you own a very bright/light shade, it'll be difficult to see, so get right up close to the mirror if you need to. Draw the shape you want on your upper lip carefully, much like you would a lip liner, but keep the side of the brush flush against the edge you want to give, then swoop to the top as you reach the peaks of the cupid's bow. It lets you get the most even shape & coat that way. Using the very tip alone won't give you much color, in the same way that using the tip of a liner paint brush gives you a very thin line.Some tips/tricks: If you mess up, this lip stain can come off with water. When I clean up a mistake, I take a q-tip and dampen it just barely, so that it will soak up the stain. Brush toward your lip, not away, and do it carefully. Otherwise, you'll stain the surrounding area like lifting a ketchup stain on a white shirt. You can clean up with concealer later as well. As I've said before, be sure that each layer of the lip stain dries completely. If it's lightly damp, you'll squish the previous layer(s) around. It's very similar to waiting on nail polish dry.Also, if you want this lip stain to be food-proof (or kiss proof!) use Lipcote or a similar lipstick sealant. It's like a top coat for your lip cosmetics. Lipcote has boasted that ELF matte lip balms work great, but using it with this lipstain is amazing. In my photo, I have 1 coat of Lipcote on. I didn't need translucent powder with this. In fact, in a previous test, that ruined it. With having about 6 layers of the lip stain, plus 1 coat of Lipcote, it does feel like my lips are painted with some kind of waterproof coating, or like those "all day" lipsticks that dry on and feel like paint. However, it's very light after it settles (Lipcote included) and actually feels soft.I have eaten with this lip stain before. Prior to this photo, I've tested it out. I've eaten with it, drank coffee with it, though I can't remember if I've had greasy or oily foods. That breaks the Lipcote barrier, so I did try to be careful. I've also slept in this lip stain + Lipcote. It didn't even come off when brushing my teeth. If you're wanting a lip solution that won't budge, knowing you'll have a busy few days, this may be your go-to method. At best you may need to touch it up. How to remove it? Scrub it off with a makeup remover, wipes or otherwise. I suggest cold cream or something oily (like EVOO or even Vitamin E oil). It takes about 5 minutes to clean off because it's a stain that's settled into the skin, and with Lipcote -- it's crazy. I even had a light pinkish stain in the end, but it wore off after a few hours.** Lip care method ** Just to offer best results, here's what I do. I use Blistex Medicated Lip Oinment, and I exfoliate with a simple damp washcloth in the morning and before I apply anything on my lips, be it lipstick or lip stain. Letting my lips barely dry before applying lip stain allows me to retain just that hint of moisture, so that my lips aren't terribly dried out. I fight dry lips often, and this is what helps me. If you have similar lip issues, hopefully that will help you.Overall, I love this and may buy it in one a Mauve color for days I don't really want to look overly dressy. Being a 40s/vintage lover, I do think this is great for days I want red lips, but still want to remain somewhat casual. With this I can adjust how red I want it to go. It takes me about 5-7 minutes to get it at the most vivid, though I'm sure I could go darker, or even layer it with another (maybe darker?) shade to make for something worthy of formal attire. I may invest in a full set just to play around and see what I can do!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too frustrating. I have tried everything under the sun and can't get these to go on evenly. Maybe if I could get it apart and dip a lip brush, but my weakling self can't get it apart. Too bad. Pretty color. (I got the pink) maybe my lips are just too dry or my product has dried up. I will order one more and see how it goes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All dried up :( I purchase this but it was completely dried up. Very pretty colors, but unfortunately I was never able to use it.
