Lipstick As Lip Stains?

I love the look of tints on the lips and sometimes it can be frustrating to have various lip products for different things, so why not use your existing lipsticks as lip stains?

As much as a bold lip can look fabulous, it's sometimes a faff to keep maintaining throughout the day! Personally i think the 'just bitten' lip stain looks beautiful and gives the face an almost effortless appearance.

I like applying these lipsticks in a variety of ways:
  • Apply the colour onto the lips (as you would a normal lipstick) and then blot with tissue.
  • Using your fingers, dab the colour onto the lips from the bullet.
  • Lightly dab the lipstick onto the lips and blend in with your fingers.

For those girlies who suffer from dry lips, i like using the Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm on top of the colour.


My current favourite has to be the Milani Flamingo Rose, but all these shades are perfect for Spring/Summer and i love how it can be just reapplied without the need of a mirror! Using lipsticks as a lip stain, is pretty easy going.

Do you use lipsticks as a lip stain? Which ones are they?

  2. MAC Rebel is an amazing tint, it stays put for ages! x
