Additional Information

Essential Lip Stain is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 719.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Combine with oils! I really liked this product and I'm stalking the page waiting for the other two colors to come back in stock (I have Nude Nectar). I use lip oils, home-made and store-bought, on a daily basis, so my lips are almost always very smooth. On days when something is off and I have rough patches, I definitely see the patches that other reviews mention, but I usually have good success and it's not even that fiddly. I also found that the stain actually stays in place if I use my oils over it, which is not true for any other lip colors I've tried. If you use an oil or other moisturiser it's not drying at all, but I didn't notice any particular dryness even with just the stain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No good It is not very manageable to use. It felt very dry and didn’t look matte.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very drying, patchy I was not impressed. I bought 3 shades and ended up throwing them out. They are *very* drying, like just putting straight alcohol on your lips. The color is patchy and clings to any imperfection on your lips. I exfoliated and moisturized, and it still looked terrible. I love many elf products, but this is a miss for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I have been using the stains for a long time. Don’t bleed. Use with gloss. Try them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two uses I bought this and tried it for the first time. The first time used it, I thought it worked a lot like a marker for lips. It had the consistency and scent of a fruity scented marker... The color pay-off wasn’t horrible but not very precise. The second time I used it, or even toward the end of the first, I noticed parts of the marker not working. By the end of the second time, there was little to no pigment left. I left it upside down in hopes that it will help. It also clings to certain parts of the lips more than others. For example, the more rough part of my bottom lip was very colorful but my upper lip hardly had a tint. (This was after exfoliating my lips.) The supposed “stain” didn’t leave a trace on my lips after eating. Also, the color “nude nectar” was more of a reddish berry. I don’t think this is a very good product and would recommend you choose something else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I think that this is a decent product for $2.00. However, it doesn't last long and is very patchy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh I bought this about 3 months ago, and i've tried giving it multiple chances but it takes a lot of work to get an even coloration, and even after that it bleeds

I'm so lost. Trying to find an e.l.f. lip product with some staying power. I saw this lip stain, read reviews, and wondering if the smell itself is being addressed and why does the stain dry out so fast? Is it meant to be a trial size?

Asked by: myroses
It is not meant to be trial size, and I had no problem with it drying out.

How do you remove it? My makeup remover wipe didn't remove it and it didn't wear off. 

Asked by: Eileen L
I also couldn't remove it with my typical makeup removers (baby oil and coconut oil). Saliva took it off in a second, so just lick your lips liberally and wipe away with a tissue. It might take a couple tries to get it all off. I was shocked that makeup remover didn't take it off, but spit did.

I love the stain, but how do you get it to the tip? Example, with a pencil, you would sharpen it.

Asked by: Dee Hayes
Store it upside down.
