Lip stains on a budget! Today I will be going over my top picks for drugstore lip stains. First, let’s briefly go over what a lip stain is. A lip stain is similar to a lip stick, but it is usually in the form of a liquid or gel and stays on longer than a lipstick. It basically leaves a stain on your lips…hence the term “lip stain”.
So without further ado…
L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lip Lacquer $8 – It comes in 12 different shades – Berry Persistent, Coral Tattoo, Endless Red, Eternally Nude, Everlasting Caramel, Infinite Fuchsia, Lilac Ever After, Pink Perseverance, Pink Rebellion, Pink Resistance, Rose On and On and Stubborn Plum. This is called the next generation lip stain since it has qualities of a gloss. This stain contains 30% water and leaves lips hydrated for up to 6 hours. It also has great shine, but doesn’t leave a sticky feel. Give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed.
L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour $9 – Yes, we have another L’Oreal product on this list. Can’t help it…it’s good stuff. This is a 2-step lip product that provides long-wearing lipcolour. It comes 24 shades, which is too many to list here, but it is a definite plus that it has a wide array of shades to fit everyone and any occasion. This product promises 16 hours of wear that will not flake or wear out mid-lip. The formula also contains Vitamin E to moisturize and condition your lips.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain $7 – I love this balm stain. First off, I love the packaging. It’s super simple, really cute and it is easy to find in my purse. Second and most important, this is a balm stain, which is awesome because it doesn’t dry out your lips. A lot of lip stains are known to be very drying on your lips. This one isn’t. It is a lightweight lip stain that has the moisture of a balm. It comes in 12 awesome shades – Adore, Charm, Cherish, Crush, Darling, Honey, Lovesick, Precious, Rendezvous, Romantic, Smitten and Sweetheart.
Boots No7 Stay Perfect Lip Stain $10 – This one is a bit harder to find at the stores, but I had to include it on the list because it’s a great product. They sale the Boots brand at Target so I am hoping that you can find this at your local Target store. This product comes in a pen form, which is great if you like to define your lips. You can perfectly trace the line of your lips and then fill it in. This lip stain is perfect to wear during the day or at night. It has a matte finish and is very buildable, so you can make the color very light or very intense. It comes in 5 great shades – Ballet, Ruby, Posy, Sultry and Seduce.
Maybelline Super Stay 24 2-Step Lip Color $8 –This product promises 24 hour staying power which is a bit of a stretch, but I will say that it does last a long time. I like this product because it comes in a ton of shades – 35 to be exact! You will definitely be able to find a shade that fits you. Great thing about this product is that it comes with a balm, so you can just keep on applying to balm to your lips and it will keep the color intact and your lips hydrated. This product also promises not to crumble, cake, fade, feather or transfer.
I hope this helps you if you are in search of a good lip stain at a reasonable price:)
