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.
