I have Sjogren's so my lips get dry and lipstick wears off quickly. I put this lipstain gently on the center area of my lips and use my finger or a Q-tip to spread over lips up to edges of top and bottom (not too much on side area) for a light stain. Then I can use my chapstick or cover with a lip gloss and the color lasts most all day. I have very fair skin and blue eyes. This color is a nice romantic red on my lips.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
