I know it's been much too long since I've written a makeup post, but if you've ever read my previous posts I'm always on the hunt for a great pink lip shade. Unfortunately, I have really chapped lips so lipstick (especially matte shades) tends to flake off pretty quickly. Lip gloss is great for hydrating my lips but the pigment of the color is rarely comparable to lipstick. Can you see my dilemma? Well I've done a little research and I found something that I would consider "blog worthy".
I've dabbled in lip stains for years but I've hated most of them. While the color may last, most lip stains dry out your lips and have that chapped/rough look to them. At a recent Sephora visit I decided to try their line of cream lip stains. I was initially attracted to the color (I picked their "cute pink") but was hesitant when I found out it was a stain and not a gloss. Since it was priced at 12 dollars, I decided to take a risk and give it a go.
As for the longevity, this is probably one of the best stains I've tried. After a night out I was surprised to see the pink stain lasted until the next morning. Almost like I wore makeup to bed (I never, ever do that!). I also love how it didn't dry out my lips. With any other stain or lipstick I always do a top coat of gloss. With this product I didn't even need one! The only downside to this lip stain is waiting for it to dry. It takes a little time, but it's definitely worth it. I can eat, drink, and even kiss my husband without it coming off.
If you're not a fan of pink like me, it comes in 10 different shades. I definitely want to try their classic red color next. Considering I've paid over twice as much for an inferior product, I'm really happy with Sephora's line of lip stains. If you don't have a Sephora near you, I've provided you with the link HERE.
What's your favorite lipstick? Have you ever tried lip stains? I'd love to hear about your go to product :)
