Lovin’ Lip Stains!

As lipcarecenter simply put it: “The idea behind lip stains is to temporarily saturate the lips with color with a dye, rather than applying a coloured wax to the lips to colour them. A lip stain is usually designed to be waterproof so that the colour will be long lasting, and once the stain dries, it should not smear, stain, wear unevenly, or transfer to the teeth. A lip stain may come in a bottle with an applicator which is used to brush the stain onto the lips, and it can also come in a small jar, with users applying the stain with a finger or a cosmetic brush.”

Via Refinery 29: "Lip-stains are a great way to wear sheer or bold colour that stays on all day, even through cocktails, eating, kissing, et cetera."

Step One: "To avoid scaly skin, exfoliate your lips using a grainy lip scrub or brush lightly with a clean toothbrush. Remove all product and allow to dry."

Step Two: "Use a concealer around your lips, then apply the stain to the edge of your natural lips like a lipliner. Use short strokes for more accuracy."

Step Three: "Fill in the remainder of your lips and allow to dry. Apply a second coat and once that is dry, feel free to finish with a gloss or lipstick. Even if it fades, your lips will still be stained!"

Carley recommends Pomegranate Crush lip & cheek stain by Stila, $24, available at Stila, and NARS lip gloss in Moon Fleet, $24, available at NARS.

  1. I always wanted a lip stain but I seem to never get the chance to get one whenever I am buying makeup. I always forget or don't find the color that I want. But you remembered me with your post to get a lip stain so I will go buy one today so that I don't forget about it again and end up needing one.

  2. Hi glow, try the shopping complexes and I have seen some but can't remember exactly where.
