I received a sample of this in my Birchbox subscription and was very excited to try it. However, when I first applied it I had some chapstick on my lips so they were moisturized. The color balled up and literally wiped right off. I then tried it with completely clean lips and the color sloshed around until it settled in the inner portions of my lips. It would not stain anywhere else. So I left it on anyway to test how long it would actually stay (even if it was only my inner lip,) and it started off with a tingling feeling. The longer I left it, it hurt my lips more and more. They literally felt like they were burning. So for about five hours after completely removing it, my lips were in extreme pain. I've never experience this burning sensation with any other lip product before so I can't say I'd recommend this! Maybe as a cheek stain it would be better, but there are so many other stains out there that are actually worth it. (As you can see in the picture it was a bright pink color, not red like it looks. Also you can see where it weirdly gravitated towards just my inner lips and a bit on the outer corners.)

I just got this and I just Can't say I like it at all. it has a weird jelly texture that would have possibly been an improvement over a very watery formula because it would be less likely to spill. It has this weird bitter taste and the worst part is it doesn't even really work. after 3 layers there is some slight semblance of color but my lips feel weird and unlike other lip stains it doesn't stain. it just sort of sits there feeling like dry hair gel barely doing anything at all. I think this is the worst product I have ever tried by this company.

This is the first lip stain I really liked and wore. Pleasing colors and it last for a long time. Applies really even so you don't need to be an expert on doing your lips and the color isn't overwhelming. It's only $17 for a full size lip stain and I really think it is worth it. Another plus is that it doesn't dry out your lips like many stains can do. Try this if you can!

got this cheek and lip stain in "Beauty Queen," which is a deep color in the tube but looks soft and natural when it goes on, like I just ate some berries vs. slathered on lip color. It can be used on lips and cheeks: I use it for lip color, and it helps shape my lips and makes me look less pale. It lasts for hours

This stain is great when combined with a pinky-red lip gloss! It's lightweight and lasts long, and it doesn't get on your teeth!

This product is a lip and cheek stain, it worked very well on both! I found it even moisturized my dry lips a lot. It blends very easily into cheeks
