I use these all the time and find they last a lot longer with a lip balm over them or multiple layers. The color does fade really, REALLY fast, but if I'm at work for three hours, I don't really mind because I usually end up looking gross afterwards anyway. They smell good, too. These are all also incredibly drying, hence why the lip balm would also come in handy. The color payoff is awesome, but is cancelled out by them fading so quickly. The color will also sit really heavy on your lips in places where dead skin is.
Didn't like it...
I generally like Maybelline products but this one was a bust. It doesn't go on very well, It doesn't last more than twenty minutes, it drys up super fast, and it makes your lips chapped. On the bright side, it smells good!
The colours a pretty natural but nothing special. It´s nice if you want to go for a very light natural look.
The colours last long though. It even got me trough a snack meal.
Not the best :(
I like these lip stains because they're cheap and the colours are great but they are not very concentrated and you need to apply loads of coats to build the colour up also it rubs off and just fades away ://
Like Them, Don't Love Them.
I own 4 of these, but Cranberry Crush is my favorite. I never wear these on their own, because they can be very drying. I always wear a tinted balm, like Korres Lip Butters over top to make them more comfortable.
I hate it. Two uses and its already done. bought the product in a manufacture seal plastic and it feels like it was open before. i was disappointed. It also made my lip chap and super super dry.
Not bad..not the best..but not bad
I have this in a peachy color, and I wear quiet often. It doesn't last as long as other stains, but it does last alot longer than a lipstick. A lip balm is a must have to have with you, as this will dry your lips to a certian extent. It has nice color payoff.

Feathering and fading in under an hour
If you apply this lip stain directly to your lips, no primer or chapstick before, you will not be happy with the results. It is highly pigmented which makes it worse when it starts to feather. It looks like your lips are bleeding! I got the berry pink.
For the lil monies I paid these are pretty good! I have #75 cherry pop &you're #85 bit of brown. I do NOT like drugstore makeup for the fact I can't try anything on. Otherwise I would not have picked these colors. They are bold as all get out! The brown not as much though. For myself they do last long and are easy to apply. I would just hydrate before application.
Not worth the money
I decided to try one of these out because I liked a particular color. I can't remember the name of it but it was a berry pink color. It was super pretty. But, the stain DID NOT stay on my lips for more than a couple hours. It acted like a regular lipstick. There is nothing special about this product at all. It even clumps a little when it starts to really fade.
