Pleased With Purchase
This worked better than expected on my patio and is holding up well with the elements thus far. I used a BEHR brand clear coat sealer that I purchased from Home Depot and applied to help make it last longer. The photo is so shiny because the patio was wet when I took it. I added a black paint design and sprinkled epoxy specks before sealing (not sure I would add the extras if I were to do this again but live and learn).
2/29/16 UPDATE: In the location of my patio that has direct exposure to sun and rain, I've noticed a couple of almost quarter sized areas where the stain has stripped off. It could be that I didn't clean / prep the concrete thoroughly enough so that it could be porous enough to absorb the stain as I am not a professional and don't have any professional or fancy cleaning tools like a pressure washer. Or maybe my epoxy fleck extras affected the sealing process. Bottom line: The stain did not sink into the concrete but acted as more of a surface "paint". If you think about all of the restaurants / retail locations that stain their flooring, you usually see places where the stain is peeling off (especially where there is a lot of foot traffic) so I'm still pleased with how my project turned out but I'm knocking another star off because I now need to spot fix it (as best I can). Overall, I'm still satisfied and my patio looks ten times better than it did before using this product.

Risk paid off
By KELLY ANN DORAZIO
So I figured for less than 20$, I would give this a try...and happy with the results! I used this stain on concrete pavers (that I made myself). The pavers had cured at least 30 days. I cleaned the pavers with soapy water and let air dry. I did NOT etch. Applied the stain with a clean dry rag (like you would wood stain)and worked it into the concrete with a circular motion. After 24 hours I applied the Behr (Home Depot) concrete sealer and water repellent - this did NOT change the appearance either.
The stain is highly concentrated. You will get a varigated but DEEP red/brown to black/brown tone. I was surprised, but okay with, how dark the stones turned. Used Kona Brown.
Absolutely, worth the cost. FYI: I had been trying liquid and powder colorants (added to concrete mix) and was very disappointed. The color was too light and very inconsistant from batch to batch.

Great color, great price
Color is exactly what I was looking for. They only had small bottles here, so had to get 32 oz version else where. I applied this with a lawn and garden sprayer (Chapin 20000 1-Gallon Poly Lawn and Garden Sprayer) and it worked wonderfully. I just used a random circular motion when applying and had the tip set to a mist.
One note. If you apply in sections (meaning different days) you'll want to make sure you clean the filter tip on the sprayer very well. I didn't and when I went to apply the second section, the sprayer was acting like it didn't have pressure. The tip was jammed up with leftover stain from the previous application. Once I cleared that up it was good to go.
