I love this product. I have the berry and red. It feels cool and refreshing going on the lips and provides some moisture. I put on 2-3 coats to build the color. It's provides a natural, flushed look. It's a subtle look but the product does state that it is sheer. I also use it as a base to moisturize and tint my lips and layer a heavier, similar colored lipstick on top. When the lipstick wears off I still have a nicely tinted lip. I have not tried it on my cheeks yet. I recommend this product especially for the price. I like it better than Benefit Benetint.
Most Helpful Critical Review Mixed review.
I originally bought this in the berry and then received the rouge shade free with an Elf order. I really like both shades. The rouge shade, in particular, has this amazing "my lips, but better" effect by adding a very pretty tint of color while looking like I have nothing on my lips. I do not find these to be moisturizing, and I need to apply a clear lip balm over the top. They are not super long lasting. I need a mirror to apply this, and I always have to blot along my lipline with a tissue. The best thing about this product is the natural looking pretty shades.

Good for no makeup days

Good color, but if you try to build it pulls off like a lip mask. Good for price, but let it set before doing anything.
Was my go to lip tint
Lip Tint Connoisseur Since 2010 from DTX
When this product first hit the shelves, I was all over it. The dewy berry tint was so perfect for my skin tone, it absorbed quickly into the skin, and stayed on for quite a while. I'm not sure but I'm thinking the formula changed once they stopped stocking them in store and made it strictly online purchase (or maybe they've been sitting around for too long, who knows?) but now the color is not as apparent, stays wet and doesn't last very long. It makes me sad because this was my go-to lip tint for a good year or so.

Not a great tint, stays very wet for a long time, so it transfers or moves before setting. Color has an orangey red color, not nude.
Came half empty
Winnie228 from Dobbs Ferry, NY
I was so excited to buy this product as my friends recommended but when I received it, it came half empty. I hadn't taken the wand out and when I did it was more evident. Very disappointed
Get an Asian brand instead, they know what they are doing.
A Connoisseur of Lip Products from Roseville, CA
First off I was slightly disappointed at the color, yes it is a red orange but it seems to have only the slightest tint or orange. Definitely more on the red side of the color wheel. It seems more like a bright red to me. That's not a real complaint though. Just a personal disappointment. It has a bad taste and doesn't do your lips any favors, it feels slightly unpleasant to wear. It doesn't apply evenly, I have a hard time getting it to spread evenly as it seems to like to stick in blotches together. It is possible to make it spread evenly just more difficult then other lip stains I've tried. It rubs off a little so if you want it to be an all day look you gotta apply it a couple times throughout the day. Whenever necessary it must be fixed and corrected. So if you would like my recommendation, do listen to the negative reviews cons and pros. If you don't mind a bad taste and a more difficult application then this is a nice cheap lip stain to buy but it isn't that much more to get another of higher quality. To begin with most lip stains are 8-10 dollars, the most expensive I've tried was 12. Most Korean brands I've tried are more pleasant so I would recommend experimenting and purchasing that sort of makeup. The reason they are better with lip stainer is because in the Asian makeup industry lip stainer is much more popular and commonly used so they create higher quality products. I hope you find this review helpful.
Use as a cheek stain!!
PM from Miami, FL
I have used this as a cheek stain for years!! It last all day long, looks incredibly natural, as if you're glowing from the inside and you only need a small dab. I apply once I apply this last, after I have done all of my skin care routine. I don't wear foundation but it blends really well with it! I blend it with a thick, stubby brush, just make sure you work quick because it will leave a stain if you let it sit. I have fair skin but even when I use my self-tanner, it still leaves a dewy, glowy look behind.
A miracle tint!
Debbie from Saint Albans WV
I buy this tint in bulk. Provides a perfect, long-lasting berry tint that can be used under other lip gloss. Wonderful product!!
Kelly from Texas
I really loved this lip tint! This was a bit more orangey that I thought but I love this color! It does have a bit of a weird taste. Takes a few applications to get my desired look but I really like this! Will buy again in the future! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Court from Michigan
Leaves a nice orangey red stain if you leave it on while getting ready.
Sofia from Seattle
This product looks amazing for a natural look or you can pair it with a bold eye! It looks great but the taste is so bad that I did have to take it off. It tastes like a sour chemical
worst lip product ever
Erin from New York
I've never used a worse lip product! this was super patchy not matter how I applied it, and weirdly watery. also had a super gross taste. I tried to use this five different times and then just ended up throwing it out. I definitely recommend buying literally any other lip product.
Really Beautiful Stain
Quill's Mom from Caledonia, WI
This product is great because the color is really a nice true berry, but also, it stays nice and your lips don't get dry from it. I also have Ardell and Holika Holika pop jelly tint and these do not compare at all. Ardell color is way off and Holika seems to separate, so that it migrates only to the edges of your lips. I wish they had more colors.
Robot girl from DC
Love this stain. It's amazingly cheap, and has staying power that rivals high-end stains (looking at you, UD!). I adore that there is a red orange color— some budget lip stains ignore warm- toned people. I keep backups of this lip stain on hand. It's the best. If you're curious about lip stains, this is an ideal "gateway" stain and the price is amazing. Try it! elf— please don't ever discontinue this.
Not much of a lip tint, but as a blush . . .
zorgo from the moon
I first bought this lip tint a couple months ago, looking for that "you but better" lip color. As a lip tint, the color starts out lovely and builds from subtle to more intense. After a few hours, the color fades in the middle and emphasizes dry patches of skin. It's just okay for it's intended use. However, I've been dotting it and blending on my cheeks as a blush and it works wonders as a gel-blush!
As a lip tint, 2 stars. As a blush, 5.
Not what I expected
Kenzie1217 from SC
It's just not for me. I tried it on as soon as I got it and I noticed it was patchy on me. Maybe because I blotted my lips together while it was still wet. Not sure. I put on a second coat to cover up the blotchy bare spots. It did it again. So I let it dry and put a third coat. Just didn't look right, didn't look smooth and was still patchy and was very drying. I wiped it off about an hour later and my lips were so dry and hurt. I will not use it again and I will be returning it. I bought the dewy berry and the color was just so red on top being patchy and drying.
My go to!!

I absolutely love this!! It's also amazing for a natural blush :)
MD from Modesto, CA
I am a low maintenance makeup girl. I am very fair and most red lipsticks are a challenge for me. This is the Rouge color is the perfect formula for a natural no mess look. It still shows as a pink on me as all reds do, but it soaks right in and gives you a nice flush look with not worrying about it smearing and bleeding. Not the exact color I was after, but it works similar to how Benetint used to. I think I will try the Berry next to see if that gives me the red I am looking for. Plus, for the price point it's worth a try.

Going for my 3rd bottle lol I keep losing it, it's an amazing product if you want color to your lips but nothing exaggerated. My fav shade is Rouge Radiance
Ash from Georgia
I love this product. It's not super tinted, goes on well, is layerable, and gives your lips that natural but better look, kinda like you've just had a popsicle.
it's true that it isn't incredibly long-lasting, but if you wear a primer it helps a lot.
10/10 will purchase again
More of a lip gloss tint
Mz. Leo from Reno, NV
I ordered this tint because I loved the color, when I apply it its more of a gloss with very little color/tint. It doesn't apply even either, I had to let it dry to apply more...great for spring or summer wear or you like light colors. The tint isn't finished or dried the color on the picture.
Joie from CA
I really like this tint. it's compact and cheap and isn't SUPER pigmented like the NYX epic ink tint. also doesn't immediately stay put wherever you apply it. you have a bit of time to maneuver it, which I like. Dewy Berry is such a pretty color, too! pretty long-wearing, not super drying. thumbs up!
I love this product!
Deb from Whitesboro
This is a great product that I will be purchasing again!
Ana C from New Mexico
I bought this in Dewy Nude and it's so perfect. This stain is sheer and layerable and it LASTS. I love the idea of lip stains but they're usually more pink than I want (like Benetint or other rosy colored stains) and don't work well with my medium skintone. Dewy Nude is like a sheer bronzey/rosy nude and it's perfect. Deepens my natural lip color just a hint.
Didn't like it
elop from san antonio tx
in my opinion this was the worst lip product I've tried in a long time. It tasted bad, it was just watery and didn't really tint my lips at all.
