thumbs up lip stain

my new favorite toy...outlast lip stain by cover girl. I can't believe I've never used a stain before now! It's undetectable and kiss proof, and looks much more natural than thick glossy lipsticks. It IS a bit tricky to apply, especially on the cupids bow of the upper lip...I would compare the process to coloring your lips with a magic marker. I applied a red tinted lip balm (Nivea kiss of flavor in cherry, my second favorite toy) which blurred the edges of the stain a bit. The color I picked up last night, which I think is called "wild berry wink", is much too red for daily wear...but I'm excited to use it for a glam evening look. I think I'll be heading back to good old walgreens again tonight to pick up the "flirty nude" shade, which I hope to be more natural with more of a pink tint rather than red.


  1. I have this stuff, and I love it too! I bought it randomly somewhere last year, but I use it ALL the time. I also love those thick lip crayons.

  2. what color do you use? I just bought the nude and haven't tried it yet, but the tube sure doesn't look like nude! I want one that is not so intense, like the red one I bought. hmm.
