With Valentine’s Day coming up, kissing is inevitable for many of us. But, we all know how it feels to kiss someone while wearing a layer of sticky lipgloss (yuck) and how Grandma-ish it looks (and feels!) to stain someone while wearing a bright lipstick.
That’s why I’m currently addicted to lip stain. It’s buildable, so you can get a dose of color or a full on bold lip, and the best part? It doesn’t stain anything but your lips.
Lately, I’ve been swiping on a touch of Tarte’s Cheek Stain in Flush to combat my winter ghostliness (it’s one of my cosmetic bag staples during the summer).
A little of this is perfect for the girl who loves a multi-use product (it’s primary use is a long-lasting cheek stain) and doesn’t want to look “made up.” Totally male-approved.
For a more dramatic, saturated color that requires no touching up, though, I opt for Revlon’s Just Bitten Lip Stain in Crave. Lip markers and crayons are everywhere, and Revlon’s version is a budget-friendly way to experiment with this trend.
