You might have heard of lipstick, lip gloss, and lip balms, but there’s a new contender on the block: lip stains. These are the wonder products that could be about to change our lives as they give our lips a dash of color that is said to last all day. So what are the best long-lasting lip stains out there?
Beach Lip and Blush Tint
The best thing about this lip stain? People only need a tiny dot to get the most from the product that will sit on lips and keep them full of color all day long. The gel is oil-free meaning users aren’t left with a greasy residue, and the tint comes in a host of shades that range from nude tea rose all the way through to deep blackberry. As if that wasn’t enough, the tint can even be worn under lip balm or gloss.
Revlon Balm Stain
Many of us grew up practicing our drawing with crayons, and now it could be time to take those skills to our lips thanks to the Revlon Balm Stain. The sticks are nice and thick meaning it can be easy to get full coverage without having to work too hard. Still not enough? These stains offer a satin finish opposed to a matte look meaning they’re not only full of color, but they look shiny all day, too.
NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Lip Dye
As well as being on the lower end of the price scale, these lip dyes offer up some of the most intense shades on the market. Many stains stick to more natural colors such as nudes, pinks, and reds. However, NYX has pushed the boundaries a little further with their dark, edgy colors that can give even the most daring of us a lip stain to use with our look.
Powermatte Lip Pigment
This formula is made to last all day – and it won’t be going anywhere until someone uses an oil-based remover to take away the color. This really is a lip stain that is designed to last all day. The products cost a little more than others on the market, but the tasteful colors and surprising wear-time of these stains mean that they are often worth the money.
Dior Addict Lip Tattoo
There is a reason that this lip stain has tattoo in the title – once it’s on, there’s no way it’s coming off. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but the water-light consistency means that it quickly slides across people’s lips and gets into every indent on our lips. From there, the lip stain lasts for hours throughout the day with no need to top up on color. As if that wasn’t enough, the lip stain comes in six shades meaning there are plenty of options to choose from.
Lip stains could be the next best thing to greet our makeup bags since liquid lipsticks. Now, it’s time to get out there and enjoy all these incredible stains for what they’re worth – and spend all day reaping the benefits of their color.
