Cover Girl lip stain

Has anyone tried the Cover Girl lip stain? can't remember the exact name of it. It looks like a magic marker, and the idea is it puts a stain of color on, like a marker would. Has anyone tried this, and if so, how did you like it?

    eeeeh, it was 'ok'.

    My lips aren't super smooth and tend to be on the dry side (no matter what kind of conditioning treatments I try to put on) so the stain adhered more to some spots than others. Applying it directly after exfoliating my lips solved that problem pretty decently...

    but it also doesn't seem to completely dry/stain on me either. It's better about wiping off than plain lipstick, don't get me wrong, but it still comes off a bit when my lips touch a napkin, straw, etc.

    Basically, I use it for layering now. I'll put it on under a gloss or lipstick so that when the lipstick/gloss fades, there's still some color down. I can't wear it on its own though :/

    Yes, the colors are limited and not at all true to that of the tube or of the "swatches" on the shelf. I could never find one I liked on me. The stain does stay on well, but it's dry - I needed a clear gloss on top of it. Since I already use CG Outlast lipcolor, I just used that topcoat and it worked well with the stain without breaking it down.

    ETA: with the clear gloss over it, I didn't have any trouble with it coming off on cups, straws, etc. It also didn't look splotchy on me - like any of their long wear lipcolors, you have to quickly spread/smooth it on before it starts setting to get an even looking appearance.

    I got the nude & promptly gave it to a friend because it was too pinkish, I think, for me. BLEH

    I got one and was disappointed that it actually wore off pretty quickly. Sephora used to make really good ones, but I don't see them on the website anymore. :hmph:

    If they're like their other Outlast lip colors, some colors just wear a lot better then others. You might try giving another color a chance, as long as you buy somewhere that you can return it.

    I've bought 2 tubes and both times have been disappointed with the shade. The colors seem a lot pinker and brighter than on the tube and like auntnett stated, really not true to the tube color or swatch. I gave up trying to find a shade I liked because I didn't want to end up throwing away more money.

    And they wore off so fast!

    Interesting that no one else seems to like them. My lips are naturally quite dark (in comparison to my skin tone) so most stains don't show up on me. I got the darkest fuchia-pink one and really like it a lot. I found it lasted a few hours even after eating and drinking. So it's not an all day thing but easier than reapplying gloss every hour.

    i loved these things :) I'm like whatshercurl and I have very dark lips. They lasted a long time. I put gloss on top to moisturize, and it still stayed on most of the day.

    the darker colors did seem to last longer. I really miss the sephora lip markers. urban decay had some great ones too. I guess that true "lip stains" are out of fashion right now.

    On a side note, I tried the new Revlon colorstay ultimate lipcolor (that comes in a tube like lip gloss), and I much prefer it to the two step of a sticky tube of something and then a seperate lip glaze over the top to seal or moisturize or something.
