My lip products changed drastically. Before, it used to be 80 percent lip glosses, now it’s almost a split between lipsticks. Not that there is something erratic about it. Wait another quarter, the ratio might be modified again. Call it a woman thing- and yes, only a makeup junkie can comprehend.
With all the rave on lipstain, a lip product that stains your lips and lasts longer than lipsticks, I was a bit adamant with this marketing gimmickry. I mean, lipstains can be quite unforgiving for rough and cracked lips, a normal occurrence for me even in the slightest change of weather.
A good friend recently introduced me to NYC Smooch Proof Lipstain 16H, a drugstore brand that costs about $5. Excited to put this product on challenge, I exfoliated my lips to make sure there won’t be unsightly chapping.

If you don’t want to be bothered with constant retouching of lipstick and/or lipgloss, then this one is for you. Yes, it stains and stays long. In my case, a good ten hours including mealtime. It glides on smoothly during application. The only issue I had was its tendency to make my lips uber dry after a few hours. T’was a quick fix though as I layered it with my trustworthy Burt’s Bees lip balm. As with other felt-tip type applicators, it is best to store it with top (felt-tip) down so it’s all juiced-up when you use it.
