If you are like me, the last thing I want to think about on Thanksgiving or any other holiday is retouching my makeup. When you are with your family or friends, you don’t need any distractions to take you out of the moment. That is precisely why I love lip stains so much. You can put them on once in the morning and they can stay on through the evening. That way you can feel put-together while being low maintenance. Bonus: no lipstick or lipgloss stain on the wine glasses!
Revlon’s Just Bitten lip stains are my favorite drugstore version. They come in several flattering shades and moisturize as well as staining your lips.
I love how these lip stains are like the love child of lipstick and lipgloss (scandalous!). What I adore about YSL’s version is that it has the glossy finish of a, yes, gloss that fades throughout the day into a more matte stain. Sure these stains are on the pricey side, but they do last a long time. Best yet, there are so many beautiful colors–I want to collect them all (isn’t that dangerously close to the Pokemon tagline?). Let’s be real though: these are way cooler than Pokemon. I can finally say that. Ten years ago, if I had even mentioned one bad thing about Pokemon my brother would have been destroyed.
