{Beauty Mark} Lip Stains

16 March 2012

I love makeup.

Now, this doesn't mean that I wear it often or in heavy amounts. But I do love finding products that make my makeup wearing less tedious and easier to maintain. I have been experimenting with lip stain lately and have really fallen in love with the stuff.

I don't really care for heavy or intense color on my face, but with this lip stain, I can build the intensity with each layer and customize by mixing shades. I also don't have to worry about it rubbing off or getting on my teeth.

I have been experimenting with a couple of different brands, including Revlon Just Bitten, Covergirl Outlast Lipstain and Palladio. My most favorite has been Palladio from Sally Beauty Supply (sold here). They run about $6 a tube, and usually require me to reapply twice a day. 

I have been recently wearing the stain nearly every day, and my most favorite shade is Rose. It's a lot like the natural shade of your lips after you've bitten them a few times. This is my everyday color, and I can layer it on for a deeper, more evening look. The hubs loves it- mostly because it doesn't stick to him and I love it because I don't have to reapply and worry about patchy fading.

I have also been trying out the Berry. It goes on a very pigmented deep pink, and after 30 minutes, it tends to get more of a hot pink. Cute for a more daring look.

The best application is lightly lining your lips with the color, then dotting the color onto your lips and pressing them together to blend. This allows you to gradually blend the color and lets you decide the depth of pigment you apply. I then top it off with Burt's Bees about 3 minutes after I apply the stain for a little moisture and it actually helps the color even out and last longer.

Here are some swatches of the lip stains for comparison.

  1. I am not really a lip color girl which is crazy because the first thing my mom does when she wakes up is put her lips on! And at bedtime too!!

    1. I wasn't either, mostly because I get it everywhere and manage to smear it on everything but my lips. But once I started using these, I got braver because I knew it wasn't going to end up all over my face (or teeth, or shirt, or hand).

  2. I used tohave a couple of Cover Girl lip stains I was gifted but never actually got to try them. I need to look for one or two now. They sounds so great and smooth. The colors above are gorgeous, too.

  3. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Kids barber chair and Modern barber chairs. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and Spa&Equipment websites.
