Do you wear lip color on a regular basis? If so, you probably have a go-to color or brand that you use every time. Lip color can be used to enhance any look and add a little extra oomf to your ensemble. There is a lip product that I have totally fallen in love with, and that is lip stain! It stays on for ages and doesn’t smudge one bit. Want to know the differences/pros and cons between lipstick and lip stain? Then stay tuned!outlast_lipstain_lipstick_1_01132009191545

Lip Stick Pros and Cons: The pros are that you can find lipstick in literally any color, any shade, any finish, from matte to glossy to sheer. With the help of a mirror, lipstick is relatively easy to apply. Lipstick is also a great moisturizer because of its waxy texture. The cons are that lip stick rubs off and smears easily. Lipstick also leaves its traces everywhere, from your water glass to your teeth and even to your clothes if you accidentally brush your lips on them.

Lip Stain Pros and Cons: The pros are that it stays on foreeeever and doesn’t rub off or smear. You don’t even need to touch it up! This means you don’t have to worry about embarrassing smears or smudges, and you don’t need to wonder if your color is fading all day! The cons are that it tends to dry your lips out, so you will need to apply a moisturizer. Also, lip stains are not available in as many colors as lip sticks are. You are limited to more neutral tones and more natural reds and pinks, but if that is what you prefer then you are in luck!

It all comes down to personal preference and trial and error. Try a few and see which you like better! Which do YOU prefer? Comment below and let me know!
