I’ve been recently obsessed with a few lip stains and I wanted to share them here with all of you lovely readers. The beauty of a lip stain is that it gives you the color of a desired lip without the pain of or the severity of lipstick.
My first favorite, which I got for free at Sephora for February being my birthday month, is called “Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment” (with SPF 15, I know one of you Hart Beat readers will appreciate that idea). This stuff is amazing and feels like a lip chap but gives you the color of a lipstick.
My second favorite lip stain is made by Burt’s Bees. This stuff is called a lip “Shimmer” even though I still refer to it as lip stain since that’s basically what it is. The plus of Burt’s Bees products are that they are gentle on sensitive skin (like yours truly). My favorite color from this brand is most definitely Raisin, although I do also have the Watermelon color. You really can’t go wrong here.
And lastly, my third favorite lip stain comes from the great (and local Western Mass brand) Jane Iredale. The kind I like is called “Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain” and is hands down the best lip product I have ever used. Not only does it come out a different color on every person depending on your complexion, but it becomes a stronger color the longer you leave it on your lips. I am obsessed.
