Lip Stain is rated 3.625 out of 5 by 496.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Red Carpet The best way to use it to me is without the gloss. I put it on my lower lip then top lip then let it dry. I don't rub it in. That has made all the difference. IT has staying power too!Red carpet is not red, but I LOVE the hot pink. Also I have some EOS that I usually put on before I put on the lipstain. It is great for the price. Better than Mabeline! Trust!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst product ever This product was awful. waste of my money. its usually 3 dollars and I got it half off and it still wasn't worth that. the color doesn't even go on, and its just leaves little dots of color all over. piece of junk. Also the colors do not match up at all. love the gloss side tho and will be using it with my all over color stick

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty color, but... It's very, very pretty... But it smells rough and makes my lips feel irritated. The gloss is fine, but it's next to impossible to use with the actual stain. It just ends up bleeding further (onto your face!) or sometimes on your teeth. You MUST blot off the excess after applying, and it just doesn't feel good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting but not true to color Long lasting, but Red Carpet which looks red on the site, is actually a hot pink. Not very happy about that. Please make a real red (preferably something brick red so redheads can wear it!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price I treated myself to a whole shopping cart's worth of items, and on a whim I added the lip stain in "Red Carpet". I don't wear a lot of lip products to begin with, and even less when they're red.This was a really great buy. It goes on flawlessly, was perfect for my skin tone and overall a great product for the price. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars at the moment is because it doesn't have much staying power. I'm going to purchase the lip lock thingy, so we'll see how that works.Don't let that stop you though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Pigment, but Sticky This product has good solid pigment, but the gloss especially is sticky and does not last like a "stain".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from First elf product I don't really like... I'm reviewing Lucky lady. It is definitely NOT the same color as the online swatch. No where near. It's this really gross looking orange color and it smells like chemicals and carrots for some odd reason. This is the first E.L.F. product I have not liked. A bit disappointing really. I expected such a pretty color. I did like the gloss part though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great deal I bought this a LONG time ago. I actually found it at a dollar tree and it was my first time ever learning about elf products. I purchased the color First Date and it is so gorgeous!! The stain goes on smoothly and does not make my lips feel dry or heavy. The gloss finishes the look off perfectly. My only complaint is that I wish it would last just a little longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably going to stock up. First time wearing a very pigmented lip stain (Red Carpet), very nice coloring. Makes my teeth look whiter. Make sure to have good healthy lips. I use eos lip balm before applying and I tend to have to wipe, exfoliate and reapply sometime in the evening. I don't use the gloss side. Both have a distinct smell, not especially nice, but not awful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, Staying Color I bought this in red and love it so far! It dries quickly and has a great color. The downside is that it's a little drying and the gloss undoes the stain effect. However, if your lips are in good condition and you don't want the gloss on top, it's great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color inconsistency and poor staying power. I purchased this and I was very excited. When this product arrived, I was very disappointed. The color was Completely off. I ordered in the color Lucky Lady, a coral looking  bright pink, but when it arrived it was a dark orange, almost brown! It also was greasy and didn't last very long at all. It is supposed to be a lipstain!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, great price! I LOVE this stuff. I bought it in red carpet and it's probably my favorite for red lips. It looks like a rasberry-ish red on the website but its actually a beautiful red color (not too bright or too dark). I don't like to use the gloss with this look because I prefer the matte finish it has without it, but I have used the gloss over other lipstick and it's okay, a bit sticky though. Considering the fact that I don't use a primer on my lips this lasts for a long time, probably 5 hours without having to touch up. If used with primer i'm sure it'd last 8 hours plus (without the gloss). I would say that the only con to the lip stain is that you have to layer it on to get a pigmented color, but for the price I don't mind it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are fantastic!! I bought three of these in mysterious, birthday suit and heart breaker and I LOVE them! The gloss is ho hum but the lip stain is more like a a liquid to matte lipstick. It's best if you build up a couple layers to get a nice opaque colour but they stay on with out touch up at least 6 hours. They are worth every single penny and I will be buying all the other colours!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy with what I saw This product is a step up from there older ones but I don't get how this is called a lip stain. I don't feel that

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, but color photos not even close! I like formula and performance of these lip stains. But seriously, the colors that arrived in my order aren't even close to what I was expecting. Especially "Lucky Lady"... it's a light, pasty, orangey tan in person. And "Fashionista" is a very bright hot pink. I'd recommend trying the stains, but only if you can see the shades in person before you buy them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lip stain has very little staying power I found that when applying the lip stain, It was very oily and didn't end up actually staining my lips.  Very disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color Not as Pictured I ordered this in "Lucky Lady", expecting a deep rose color. When I first opened the product, I was pretty disappointed. It was way orange and lighter than pictured. However, when I applied it, it took on a charming rose-like color. Even if it is not how it is shown, it is still a great color. It goes on smoothly and stays on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! This is a great stain, it works as it should.  Like all stains, though, it can be drying, so be prepared to counter that with some kind of conditioner or gloss on top of it, the gloss on the flip side of the stain is adequate but not my favorite.  The pigmentation is very strong and the color is true.  Would prefer the stain alone rather than with the gloss, because it would make the container smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is awesome I love this so much but I'm really hoping that elf starts making plum tones, purples and all would make my life complete. I prefer the matte look and feel so I don't use the gloss but I looooove this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!! I bought these in Mysterious and Fashionista. I'm in love with these lip stains. They glide on like lipsticks but starts to dry on your lips as a stain. It stays on nicely on your lips. Mysterious is nude color for me. I would want to have all of them :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vibrant Color, But Not Really A Lip Stain I received the color Birthday Suit in one of the recent promotions. I was a bit sketical of the color because it was a very bright pink with blueish tones. I tried it and at first I hated it. But the second time I loved it! It sort of reminds me of MAC's Candy Yum Yum (almost). The first application is a little faint but as you build the color it becomes more vibrant. I wouldn't really call this product a lip stain though. It is more like a matte cream lipstick when applied without the gloss. This "lip stain" does stay put. I wore it and even after light snacking and drinking I did not need to reapply. There also is barely any kiss transfer. I would probably repurchase this product in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have it in Bombshell and the Red Carpet Red, it goes on very fluidly which makes it easy to cover and add definition, when it dries it creates a lovely matte finish while remaining soft to the touch. I can wear it all day and it lasts!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor wear time; bleeds After how awesome the new Studio lipsticks were, this was a big let down. The color applies patchy and has to be carefully applied and given time to "soak" into the lips, and even the darker shades didn't appear very vivid or transformative on the lips. It almost immediately started spreading out around my lips; not bleeding into fine lines, but just smearing and staining the area around my lips, which made them look swollen like acne or something. Gross. On top of that, the product transferred onto food/drinks/everything and didn't last more than an hour. A stain with no wear time? *raspberry*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have had this for about a few months now and i love it! When i eat or drink something while wearing this lip stick it never comes off like others do! Will be buying more of this in all colors :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I love ELF but this is the worst product I've ordered from them. I ordered the stain in Lucky Lady, which in the picture looks like a nice red/pink. In reality it's a brown, nothing like the picture at all. It smells like chemicals and it goes on pretty patchy. I wouldn't buy this product again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color swatches a little off, but great product. Just bought Lady Luck and the red shade of this lipstain. Great performance. However, on my computer monitor (and my phone and my tablet) Lady Luck is a berry pink. The one I received is a nude orange color which thankfully also looks nice, but not like the picture. I did not have this difficulty with the other e.l.f. products I ordered - the swatches were representative of the actual color. Please fix this so that I can buy with confidence!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from blotches i bought this product and every time I use it gives me little pink blotches everywhere on my lips. don't get me wrong it is a beautiful color but I have tried everything. I tried putting it on and opening my mouth really wide so it would give me those blotches but it just kept doing it. I thought that it was just because it was still drying but even after it was dry it still had those blotches. so yea not a really good product in my opinion

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not true to swatch I bought this in birthday suit and red carpet. As soon as I saw birthday suit, which looks like a light pink, I knew it was the wrong colour. The colour in the tube didn't even match the colour on the packaging. As you can see in the picture, it came in a HOT PINK. Disappointing because I wanted it for everyday wear and now I can only wear it if I really want to make a statement. Red carpet was true to description. They go on like any regular gloss and dry quickly.
