Do your lip products leave their mark?
There is nothing I love more in the winter than a nice lip stain. In my opinion lip stains are more versatile than lipstick and lip balm. I think they are the perfect middle ground because balms can be to low maintenance and lipstick can be to “done-up” so I love how easy nice a good lip stain can look. I like to throw on one even when I when go sans makeup because it won’t wash me out and I still look put together.
I have been grabbing the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion and Shanghai Sizzle of late and I absolutely love them… They go on a little funny at first with sort of gel-like texture but once it settles it melts into the nice glossy texture. The Revlon stains are very pigmented and I love that I only have to apply one swipe to get real color payoff and I never wear a lip liner with it either. I for one have naturally dark lips so it makes me happy when I can get color payoff without a liner 🙂
On the sunnier and brighter days I like to apply NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler and Red Velvet these to are my minimal makeup staples. They don’t deliver intense pigment but I like the subtle wash of color they deliver on my lips. I love how glossy they go on and how pigmented they look when I pair them with a neutral liner underneath. One thing to keep in mind is that you want to start with well moisturized lips when using both of these brands.
