If you’ve been looking for a lipstick that doesn't dry out your lips or magnify vertical lines, you are going to love the latest trend in lipsticks – lip stains.
Lip stains look like markers, but they are designed to temporarily stain the lips with long-lasting color which will resist wear without drying your lips. Unlike lipstick, a lip stain does not contain wax. But even without wax, lip stains glide smoothly across your lips giving you a pop of color and matte finish that will stay for hours. Say goodbye to reapplying lip color throughout the day!
There are many different brands that offer lip tints and lip stains and many can even be found in the drugstore aisle. Some brands include a transparent lip balm on the other end of the lip stain wand so you can protect the color even longer.
Lip stains are a great alternative if don’t like the sticky quality or heaviness of regular lipsticks. Apply thoroughly for new bold looks, or go sheer by applying with a light dabbing motion for a more subtle effect.
Tip: apply the stain before applying your favorite gloss or lipstick to make your color last for hours on end.
