Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lip I am not a big fan of this product because it's to dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some other brands better watch out! Liquid lipsticks are hot right now, mainly because of their stay power. I have bought several from another company with a "tattoo influence" and have been very happy with them, although they were quite drying. NYX Lip Dye gives you great color with LONG wear. And the price is incredibly inexpensive for the value. Sometimes my lips get a little dry but NYX lip glosses give me just enough moisture without disturbing my luck. I hope they come out with A few more shades in lighter pinks, peaches, and nudes. Will I be buying more? Absolutely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Bought this a couple of weeks ago and I guess my expectations were a little high. The color is nice but it took multiple applications to achieve its true color. The liquid is actually really watery maybe that explains the multiple applications. Color does not last at all! Wears off too fast. I wouldn't purchase this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lip tint I wish there were some lighter colors but these are nice. The product does tend to crumble up and be a little patchy though. Extremely hard to take off after you wear it for long but it's called lip dye try some coconut oil to get it off and exfoliate because the product makes your lips dry. I think there is a master technique to applying these and they'll be good but I need to learn how..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love It I love my lip stain. It stays on along time and it always looks like I have some color on my lips. The only thing I am disappointed with is the actual color itself. The color that you see on the tube is not how it looks on your lips. It is like they are two different colors. I would love more selections of colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Messy When i sampled it in store i applied on my hand to show color and texture. I knew it was liquidy and the pigment was strong but as soon as I bought it and applied on my mouth it was like that kid that had 3 Popsicles. It was messy, and highlighted any dry areas on lips. I try to peel the bits that were extra dark from the pigment. The one good thing is that I took a hydrating nyx lipstick and applied on top of it and it looked much better. I guess I'll use as a base. I feel like it's not meant to wear alone .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly stays This color lip pares with a nice winged liner and mascara. it truly stays on and doesn't come off while eating. I want more colors now. Some say it's too watery and hard to apply, but take your time and it will come out perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nightrunner So I bought this in the shade Night Runner and it definitely WILL NOT move or stain ANYTHING which can be a problem when it comes to removal. When I applied the shade it was really dark, almost black (but my lips are dark anyway) and when I tried to take it off, my makeup remover wipes hardly worked. I'm not sure if I applied too much or maybe my lack of experience with lip stains made me just put it on my lips generously without thinking but I don't like how hard it is to come off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chemical taste I should have listened to the bad reviews, it did go on uneven and stain patches badly, but I could work with that, what I couldn't stand was the taste, it's bitter and chemical and it doesn't go away, the taste stays as long as the product. I don't know why anyone would use this when they could use the matte lip cream which smells amazing. This ink is awful, unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staying power I bought this recently trying to find a product that will work for my bridal clients. I always make my brides a lip touch up kit but it would be nice to find them a lip product that has long lasting all day wear... and I have :) The Epic Ink Lip Dye does the trick and several of my brides have asked what the product is and where to go purchase this amazing item. I would like to suggest to NYX to please extend the color range into lighter tones .... like pinks, mauve's, nudes and such.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stains (This lip stain definitely stains - my teeth included.) I bought "Charmed". The color is fairly stubborn. It takes a few layers to avoid a streaky look. It's very liquid and takes a bit to dry, so watch where it goes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice!!!! Loved how saturated it was, it was like nothing was there! However I couldn't for the life of me remove it I know it's a stain and is supposed to me long lasting but you could still see some like 2 days after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Color! This is the perfect lip stain! A rich color and it doesn't rub off or smudge. I'm so happy I bought it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this... I'm a huge fan of NYX lip products and I always need a long lasting lipstick, but this was patchy and terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark but lovely It is much darker when applied but stays on really well! I absolutely love! But I do wish it came in lighter reds/pink colors

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with this product. I wanted to love this. I'm a big fan of pretty much all of Nyx's other lip products. But this was just strange. I picked up the shade Wizardry at work, thinking it was a darker red shade. When I put it on, it looked plum. Very plum. Then when I came online to write this, I saw that it's supposed to be a "true brown with blue undertones"?! I don't mind the plum shade, but it's not what it says it is. Also, the product was literalll liquid. It streaked, applies poorly, settles into every line, and just looks bad. It also didn't last very well on me. I could lick my finger and wipe most of it off. I'm going to steer clear of these.
Date published: 2017-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY. I have been looking for a decent lip stain forever! I bought Wizardry yesterday, it is the best lip stain I've ever tried. Does what all lip stains do and does it well. My lips are stained and my heart is light knowing that I've achieved a low maintenance lip look for my day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect lip stain! I bought this because it was on sale and I had been eyeing it. I am so glad I took the plunge! I have it in Slay, which is kind of red, kind of nude. It stays on for forever and goes on really saturated, almost like a lipstick. I would recommend not using primer, and I personally dab some off with a tissue before it gets dry. Also, make sure you clean up the edges quickly, because once it's dry, it's not going anywhere! A fabulous product for an excellent price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pigment and lasted all day/night! Got my lip dye in 'Fresh' and love the beautiful pigment and long lasting wear. It is a bit more bold/dramatic color than I was expecting. Going to try mixing it with lip balm to tone down color. Definitely recommend exfoliating and moisturizing lips before applying. Hoping there will be more rosy nude shades in near future for everyday wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing color and staying power!! First of all ladies this a lip stain not a lipstick so it is suppose to be very thin coats. I was very impressed how it only took two coats of application to get the accurate color! I have a lip stain from Younique and usually have to apply 3-5! This also dries very quickmy as well which is also a wonderful plus! The starting power is very nice and when it does wear off it doesn't wear off splotchy like I've experience with other lip stains... absolutely love this product, will definitely be interested in getting more colors!! Wearing the color blazed in picture below!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from imperfect I got this in the shade "Poised" and I love the "I'm a vampire that just had a meal" look of it. I put this on freshly exfoliated lips and then throw some lip balm on top. I fades beautifully and my lips are still faintly red the next day.
Date published: 2017-03-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from POISED & STAYED PUT I've waited long enough for a stain to come. Thank you NYX. This staying Red (Poised) stain is AWESOME. I don't care about the complaints below because apparently you're not used to something that is called "stain". NYX keep up the great work. I plan to get one more - just because. I mean, $7.00 what could you possible complain about.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasts forever! This stain is very enduring. I have to use a makeup remover wipe for it to completely come off. Got this in the color Victorian and I love it! Can't wait to try other shades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lipstain! Bought this yesterday and I must say it was amazing! Dries quick! Lasts long and pair it with a lip liner and you're good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES TO LIP STAINS I bought this product at Ulta in 2 shades and will absolutely go back to buy the others. The name of the product is accurate. Think "ink"; think "dye". The product is thin, liquidy, and totally weightless - it is not at all creamy like a liquid lipstick can be. Epic Ink is like watercolor for your lips, so it gives a beautiful wash of color while still being bright and bold. As such it's best used after a lip scrub when you don't have many dry bits as the product will cling to them. Word of warning : **Screw the product closed tightly**, otherwise product can leak out. And it is a stain...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stuff! I got Heartbreaker which is very pretty and Victorian, which I thought was a little more on the maroon side but more purple. These stay on all day! I swatched first and it would not come off, Even with remover and coconut oil! Don't plan on taking it off for awhile. Would like to see more colors!
