Most Helpful Positive Review remember its a *stain*!
I purchased this recently. A few things to remember about this - cause I know some reviewers will comment on this - at the end of the day, this is a stain. It is thin, more "liquid" than liquid lipsticks. This means if applied like you would other lip products, its going to look uneven and patchy on the lip. Read the "how to use" portion and Im telling you, you will notice how beautiful this shade is! Also remember to use chapstick beforehand!
This is a super buildable product, and with just a second or third layer it can give very "liquid lipstick"level boldness.
Also appreciate this color because its truly "my lips but better". Not all lips are pink, ive got so much pigmentation/brown, its really nice to find a shade of pink suited for my lips!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not impressed.
The good news is that the wear has to be long because I had to work pretty hard to get them off after applying. The bad news is that wanted them off my lips basically as soon as I put them on. I bought the Rosewood and Grey Mauve because I'm a huge fan of ABH's liquid lipstick and I've been impressed with their lip products pretty much across the board. Not this time. Even after reading the "How to Apply" section, both colors went on patchy and uneven and they looked nothing like the images provided. Rosewoord genuinely looked like a little kid had used a red washable marker on my lips. Grey Mauve was the worst -- you know that semi-purple blackish color you get on your tongue from eating grape-flavored lollipops? That.
I still love you, Anastasia, but this was not your finest hour.

This lip stain is amazing! Dries quickly, lasts all day and night, and doesn't come off on my mask at all! New favorite!
I personally didn't care for it
Lovable yogi from Waldorf, MD
The product was a very pretty color but certain areas went on too thick and created an extremely dark color and was very hard to get off or fix.
Don't waste your money

I wanted to love this sooooo badly but I was extremely disappointed and I returned it the next day!!!!! So so so patchy!

I was a little hesitant to order this based on reviews but I am glad I took the chance. I ordered the dusty rose and it's fantastic. It is critically important to exfoliate lips and moisturize them with chapstick first. But if you do those two things and let this dry it is perfect, truly all day color. I ordered two more colors and plan to layer this stain under some favorite pinks and reds as well so when they wear away (looking at you Kim K lipsticks that I love but don't last all day) I will stay have a nice color remaining. My makeup must does are good brows and a pop of color on my lips, I love these and hope she adds more shades.
Love the color and staying power, hate the applicator
TxHillCountry from Bulverde, Tx
First time I applied it, loved it, lasted overnight. Color is great. After that, too much gets on the applicator and it is not tight enough to take off extra when I pull the applicator out. It creates way too much on my lips that I need to wipe off, also makes the color much darker since there is so much product. One thing I also end up doing is adding some lip balm after it dries. Somehow it dries my lips like crazy and they are peeling/ cracking. Thought I would like this better but I don't.
Alyssa from CA
Literally this is the best product ever. It looks so natural on and lasts all day. I will buy this product for the rest of my life no lie.
anonymous from London
Lovely colours long lasting but not that long, because could be wiped off with clear water.
Wyotaradise from Wyoming
I have used lipsence for the past few years and love how it actually stays put for hours with one application. I do not like that you can only use their gloss with it though. So I tried this in Black Cherry, and absolutely fell in love with it!! I have been using Too Faced Lip Injection with it and I couldn't be happier with the results!!
teebitz from Rochester, NY
I purchased this stain in dusty rose thinking it would be perfect for my upcoming wedding, LOVE this brand but this stain fell short of expectations. Smells great, goes on very nicely and thats where it stops. I have fair to light/medium toned skin depending on season and this color is much darker than expected which was a shock, I do love the color though unfortunately there is no staying power. I applied at about 11:45am ate lunch around 12:00 noon and here we are at 2:40pm nearly gone. I had higher hopes.
C from USA
I have the shade rosewood and it's probably the most workable of the shades. These are really patchy, they don't stain well at all and are kind of sticky. The only pro is it smells really good like fruity. I'll use it but I won't ever repurchase.
FINALLY A REAL LIP STAIN!
Ellie from MA
I have been looking for a true lip stain for *years.* I have tried so many that go on fine but fade really quickly or wipe off or that you can't apply lip balm over. This one is the real deal - you just have to use it correctly (I think a lot of the bad reviews are due to people not knowing how to use it!) apply, then let dry and wipe it off with a damp cloth/cotton swab. You'll be left with a beautiful even stain and no sticky finish.
Kitkat12 from CA
It smells great, and the stain holds FOREVER. I'm very happy with the product
Diane from California
Awful product. Goes on so unevenly and looks hideous. Will be returning
Patchy & Sets Immediately
Mxgxn from WI
I was so excited for these to come out, but unfortunately the black cherry color is super patchy and dries down within a second, so you have no time to work with it. It intensely stained my lips though which is why I gave it 2 stars.
Great lip stain
Willow from Columbus, IN
Great red shade that stays on a long time. I have tried other so called lip stains that barely last an hour.
Feels good on the lips
Everyday Amy Michelle from Nebraska
Easy to use lasts longer than expected. Nice natural looking lip color
Red lip lovers new go to stain
Everyday Amy Michelle from Nebraska
Really enjoying this lip stain. It applies easily feels great and no dry lip feeling. It lasted for a little over 12 hours before fading in the middle a bit. Avoid greasy foods or it wears off a bit faster. No smudging and no transfer after application. New go to lip stain
BEST LIP STAIN EVER!!!
Kvd124 from Chicago
I am am in love with this stain! I bought it a few days ago and can't say enough good things about it. I like to wear a balm but they fade so I have to reapply very often. I like a little color though so I put this on first, let it set and even after eating and putting a clear balm on all day, the color lasts truly lasts. I'm so happy with this fabulous product!
Patchy and sticky
SV from USA
I was so excited to try this. I read how to wear a lip stain and tried it several different times, but each time it came out patchy, sticky, and had a weird foam-like residue from any contact with saliva when my lips came together.
Only giving it 2 stars because the dusty rose color is so pretty, but I will be returning it. :(
too dark tones
Pink from undisclosed
Good formula but colors dont match too dark.not same as lipcolor
Farah from Trinidad and Tobago
Love this lip stain. The texture is really moisturizing and not drying at all.
Good lip stain
Sisi from Los Angeles
Vibrant color, works really well for my skin tone but can be a little drying
77catsinacar from ohio
These are the only truly "mask proof" lippies I have been able to find all summer!! Extremely impressed, I bought 3 of them. The shade "Grey Mauve" is a bit patchy in application but the others are great and go on smoothly. They last through a 10 hour shift and don't budge or smear at all. Great product.
Rosewood lip stain
FaviLerma from Gilbert Arizona
Super patchy and the color doesn't look like the swatches I've seen online.
Ashlynn from Washington
Makes a great "your lips but better" for pale skin when applied in a light layer with a lip brush and is also buildable for a dark color. It's very easy to get an ombre lip effect. This is the best lip stain I have ever used.
