Lip stains are great when you’re on the go and don’t want to be bothered with reapplying. Unfortunately, they’re not the best at knowing when to leave the party.

It lifts color without leaving your kisser parched, a bonus considering how drying some long-wear lip products can be. Just swipe on and wipe off for clean, soft lips.
