This product did not stain my lips, and was super drying, and didn't even look that shiny like it claims.
This lip stain has it's pros and cons. I bought the "Naturel" shade after getting advice from one of the ladies at Shopper's. That shade isn't quite what I wanted after all - the bottle is a light pink/coral, but the actual product is much darker and deeper, even with just one application. But I have noticed that with lip stains you have to experiment with the colours to see what works, and there are a few other colours from this line that may be better for me.
Aside from how I feel about this shade, the lip stain itself isn't bad. It's supposed to be long lasting with a "satin finish" (and also paraben free). I've noticed that it lasts a while - if you let it dry properly it stays on your lips for about half an hour before starting to look a bit blotchy, (with sipping on drinks, etc). It doesn't technically 'stain' your lips in my opinion, and if you want to take it off, it washes away easily. Also, I find it starts to migrate towards the inside edge of my lips after time, so you have to reapply it on some parts if you want the colour to look solid.
The product does feel nice after it has dried properly - it's pretty thin so that doesn't take too long, but at first it feels a tiny bit sticky. After that, it definitely has that 'satin finish' and actually feels a bit moisturizing. There is no dryness, but the colour can start to look a bit matte when it's been on your lips for a longer time (this stuff is supposed to work well under lip gloss as well so that's not really an issue).
The applicator is like a pointy but chubby marker tip and the whole tube is only about 3 inches long. I like how small it is, but not that you can't see the product inside.
The tip makes it pretty easy to apply perfectly (which is kind of necessary). But I still need a tiny bit of practise - it's kind of like filling your lips in, instead of swiping the colour on like a lip stick or gloss.
Over all, I do like how this feels on my lips and it's much more long lasting than lipsticks or glosses, but not as much as other some other stains out there I'm sure. I think there are slightly cheaper products than this that would do basically as good of a job, but I'm glad I tried this and would recommend others to try it out if they really liked one of the shades.
