Pucker Up – Lip Stains are In and Here to Stay

If you haven’t already heard, lip stains are the new matte lipsticks. Their long-lasting colors stay pigmented all day, even with masks! However, the more eating, drinking or friction to your lips, the more the color will fade. 

With nearly 90 colors and over 700,000 likes on the product page, the Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick from the Sephora Collection is as affordable as it is durable and gorgeous. Get it here for $10 to $15. 

Make sure to hydrate your lips before applying balms or butters, because lip stains can be drying! Get the Balm Dotcom lip butter by Glossier here for only $12. There are 8 different flavors offered!
