Move over gloss--we have a new favorite this summer: Lip stains. They're not sticky or heavy and our hair won't get glued to our lips on a windy day at the beach. One of our faves is the CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain. It basically looks like a magic marker. You simply "draw" the color on your lips and it stays in place for hours. It also has a delicious scent--we're going to guess it's raspberry. If your lips get a little dry, dab on a touch of Aquaphor on top.
A close second is the Stila Pomegranate Crush Lip and Cheek Stain. It's the plummier more mysterious sister to the Cherry Crush.
Think you can't live without the boost a gloss gives smaller lips? Try the Tarte Rise & Shine Plumping Lip Stain that has a superfruit complex to make lips their fullest. The gel-based tint lasts all day and is paraben, sulfate and phthalates-free.
Of course if you can't give up gloss, we don't blame you. Check here for our favorite lip glosses from last summer--all are still available in stores!
