You may love a pop of color but don't always go straight for the lipstick. Thankfully lip stains are the perfect in-between.


Color can do a lot for your mood, mainly that pop of color on your lips. When you're not looking for something that relatively as light as a balm but not fully lipstick, a lip stain can be the answer to your questions.

Thanks to the South Korean viral trend, more and more western brands have released noteworthy lip stains that'll not only give you the color but they'll stay right where you put them. Here are ten that we like.

Clarins Water Lip Stain


The formula is non-transferable so it's ideal, to wear even under your mask. It comes in four matte shades that promise to stay in place.

L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain boasts an impressive thirty-seven shades so far, with a little something for every mood. You can also expect many hours of rich pigment from this.
