Everyone knows the feeling.
You put on your favourite lipstick but then a few hours later it’s faded. Brands are definitely coming out with more lip products lately that have a lot more staying power than their older counterparts. If you’re looking for something that will truly stay on and fade out nicely then you’re going to want to take a look at a lip stain.
Avon just came out with a new lip stain collection, which consists of six different shades and come housed in a dual-ended applicator. One end is used to line the lips and then the other is used to draw them in. This lip stain packs some serious staying power and will promise all-day wear with no smudging, feathering or budging. The colour is semi-permanent and feels weightless on the lips.
The brand sent me three of the 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo Line & Fill Duos to try out and to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan when it comes to the consistency of stains in general. I don’t find them to be that flattering on me, but I was more than happy to give them a try. I got the shades Rebel Raspberry, Renegade Ruby, and Gnarly Nude, and I found the red-toned ones to be very true to colour, however, Gnarly Nude didn’t give me the nude vibe I usually look for and instead was more of a coral on me.
As for the applicators, I found them to be reminiscent of markers and didn’t really think there was a need for it to be dual-ended. I think the one end would have been just fine since it’s rather flat and rectangular, meaning that you can use it to trace your lips anyways.
As for staying power, these definitely do stay on and if you’re looking to sport something for a short amount of time, I would skip these since they really do last on the lips. I also want to note that they are infused with sunflower seed oil to help hydrate the lips, so they are a comfortable wear as well.
These retail for C$11.99, regular C$15. Like I said, I’m not a fan of lip stains in general but if you like them then you can’t go wrong with these. I would stick to the darker and more red/pink shades over the lighter ones though since you’ll get the most bang for your buck that way.
