Makeup Review: Sephora Cream Lip Stain

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 :)




  1. It's such a pretty pink! I have been thinking about taking the plunge and trying a nice bright pink, maybe now!

  2. That shade is so pretty on you! I don't normally wear lipstick...no matter what color I try, I always think it looks weird on me!

  3. mmm genius! i love pink (looks amazing on you girl!) and i love that it doesn't come off on things... totally trying this out! thanks for the great reveiw!


  4. I've never tried stain but I've been wanting to try one, thanks for the recommendation!!


  5. The the shade you chose is fantastic and matches you so well! I love tints, and I usually use those more than lipsticks.....I really love that shade, so tempted to get one in the same color now :)



  6. I've never tried a lipstain before, this sounds awesome and the shade is perfect on you! I love it

  7. How nice - I nevr find one that doesn't come off. I've been obsessed with the sugar stuff lately because it makes my lips feel great but the color comes off in seconds

  8. Absolutely beautiful! I definitely want to try this one out...thanks for sharing!

  9. Ooooo! I love lip stains because they last, but they do dry out my lips! Can't wait to try this! and I LOVE pink shades!

  10. Awesome lipgloss! Nice color:)


  11. I love trying new lip colors so I appreciate the review! I'll definitely have to give that a try. My go to lip color is Tarte lip tint in enchanted. It's $$$ but so worth it!

  12. Thanks for the review!! I have the same dilemma, I usually opt for lipstick because I love the color payoff but my lips are very dry so I have to apply lipgloss over it. I'm going to check this out!

  13. Thank you so much for the review, good job swetty! :)


  14. I was actually thinking about finding a new lip product lately since my lipstick always comes off by the end of the day. I've never tried a stain yet but I'm tempted to after your rave review! This color is gorgeous on you, by the way! :)



  15. The only stain I've tried were those Pout Paints but it dries the hell out of your lips and well, stains skin so badly.. No kissing at all haha!

    This sounds like a product I need! I love Cute Pink on you.

  16. I usually stick to lip glosses in girly pinks. I don't think I have ever tried a lip stain but this color looks so beautiful on you. I have been wanting to try a bold red, which is something I have always shied away from.

  17. Wow I've never tried this but after reading your post it sounds perfect for me! haha my boyfriend won't ever kiss me when I'm wearing lipstick because he doesn't want it on him!

  18. This color looks so good on you, its a pop of color but still really natural looking. Definitely need to check this out! I love the clinique chubby sticks during the day because they are light and moisturizing, and just bought the "intense" clinique one from sephora this weekend to try out!

  19. This looks great on you Ashley! I love a lot of Sephora's line but I haven't tried this one yet, I definitely need to now! I love lipstains, they're my favorite, but you're right a lot of them leave your lips dry or the color doesn't go on evenly. I've been using lip crayons and gloss stains lately and although I feel like they don't last as long I like them a lot better!

  20. i am the same...my lips are ALWAYS chapped! i've been using cococare lip butter...only thing that works for me, then i apply whatever lipcolor over. currently using MAC, but haven't had a problem with anastasia beverly hills hydraglosses.

    the color looks great on you!

  21. I'm obsessed with their lip stains. I have the red one and it's INCREDIBLE. I was surprised by how moisturizing and long lasting it was. I should probably check out more colors.

  22. And it actually stays put?? Ooo now I really have to try this. I rarely wear lipstick or lipstains because I have no clue what color would be best for me but for only $12, i'll give it a try :D Thanks for doing a review!

  23. I love lip stains because they stay so much longer! I'll have to try this one out.
    Isn’t That Charming.

  24. This is such a pretty color! I have a hard time finding ones that don't dry out my lips, so I will definitely give this a try. Also, I'm excited to check out their other colors! Thanks for the review!

  27. I have never try that lip stain it looks like its worth the try. I haven't found a lip stain that work for me either, but I'm more a fan of mac lipstick I just put before bursbee chapstick an my lips never dry through out the date. But I haven't find the perfect everyday pink color more like a natural lip color like benetint from benefit, but this one dry out my lips :-(
