I love to use lip stains in the spring and summer because they are so effortless. Who wants to touch up lipstick whenever they’re having fun in the sun? I definitely don’t! I love how stains make your lips feel like they have nothing on them! These lip stains are all great options because some are sheer, some are pigmented, some are affordable, and a few are more pricey. I think you will really enjoy any of these lip stains if you purchase them. Let me know what your favorite lip stain is in the comments!
POP Beauty Stain Stay in Poppy Kiss ($16)- This lip stain is a gorgeous orangey red and lasts FOREVER on the lips. This is the best higher end lip stain that I’ve found. I love to wear a juicy gloss over it to add some shine.
Stila Lip & Cheek Stain in Pomegranate Crush ($24)- Gel based lip stains can be a lot more forgiving than felt tip stains because they are a lot sheerer. I like how you can easily use this one on the cheeks as well for a cohesive look. This berry shade isn’t my favorite in the spring, but if you apply it sheer it will look very pretty.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous ($8.99)- This balm-stain hybrid is for those of you who hate dry lips after using a stain. Revlon hit the ball out of the park with this lip stain because it feels like a light lip balm on your lips, but you still get great color. After the product wears off, you’re left with a just-as-bright stain. I have reviewed it here already if you want to learn more!
NYC Smooch Proof 16h Lip Stain in Forever Fuchsia ($4.99)- If you want a lip stain that is affordable and works just as well as the expensive ones, find NYC’s at your drugstore! I’ve had this one for quite a while, so it is starting to try out, but it is UBER pigmented and lasts just as long as my POP one.
L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Coral Tattoo ($9.99)- This lip stain is new on the market and is pretty much an exact dupe of YSL glossy stains, so I decided to include this one as it is a much more affordable option. I have reviewed this shade along with another here already, but I do really like them! I think these are for those of you who love lip gloss and want more color out of it without wearing a lipstick.
