Must Have Make-up Monday #1

Lip Stain

I’m always afraid my Lipstick is going to smear {especially bolder colors} and I also don’t like the feeling of having it on my lips. I can’t be the only one out there. 🙂 So I was forced to look for an alternative.

When I first begin the hunt for a lip stain I went to Sephora and asked what they recommended. They showed me Lorac lip/cheek stain which they don’t sell anymore. It was so horrible because it comes out darker in some areas and darker in your lip creases when you apply it with the roller it comes with. I also tried a lip brush and my finger but the outcome was the same. {You would have to do a lip scrub before to exfoliate all the dead skin because this stuff would make it extremely noticeable.} It was way more trouble than it was worth! It was about $27 and it spilled everywhere because the roller leaks. lol Another Blogger Reviewed The Revlon Just bitten lip stain and it Had the same effect… although the lorac stain was 10X more noticeable. Check out her review here.

I gave up on lip stains and had to deal with lipsticks until I went back for sephora’s holiday sale in December. I tried BITE cashmere lip Cream which then became my favorite. It feels light on your lips and has just a little bit of shine.  I Purchased Rioja and port {one is a bright red and the other is wine} I still love this lip cream but I found Something better Since then. These are kind of expensive at $28 a pop.

On my most recent visit to Sephora I came across the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain and Im very impressed.  I went out all day and ate and it still didn’t come off.{I love not having to reapply} You apply it as a cream and it dries perfectly Matte…Ive tried a couple of the other colors {Colors #6 &# 8} But they have a shimmer which I don’t like. Im looking forward to trying #2 & #3 because they are also matte.

Color 01 Always Red

only $13!Stace_FotorThis is the Red color ..  it shows up a little brighter here because of the sun. 

If you’ve tried sephora’s lip creams tell me how it worked out for you in the comments below! Which one was your favorite color?
