Beauty Bites: Lip Stain

lip stains


To say I've been into bright lips lately is an understatement. My nudes and light pinks are being replaced by bright reds and hot pinks. But with all my talking at work, by 10 am I'm left with a bright red ring outlining my lips and nothing else if I try to wear lipstick. Enter in the lip stain...

I wanted a product that would give me long lasting color. I tried the Revlon Just Bitten in Gothic. It wasn't the perfect red for me but I liked the hydrating balm attached. I loved the Tarte Lipsurgence matte lip tint in Fiery. I wore it in these pics, here. The color was perfect for my skin tone and I love the matte look it gave, but it didn't last as long as I hoped and my lips dried out while wearing. I would have loved to combine the Revlon hydrating stick with the Tarte color to make one amazing product! The YSL I tried only once and it was a bit more glossy but definitely lasted. The color seemed like it would compliment most skin tones. 

Has anyone else tried a lip stain they would recommend? I'd love to hear about it! 


  1. Hey Beck... I just picked up the Revlon Balm Stain last week and love it. The one I have is only one-sided so the stain has the balm built right in. I tried the SMITTEN shade, which turned out to be a pretty good stain version of our beloved Funny Face!

  2. never tried one, but I would go for the revlon because I've heard so many good things about them!
