Lipstick VS Lip Stain – Which One’s Better?

Lip stain has become an ever-so-popular must have in many ladies makeup bags. Many advertisements brag a long lasting wear and flawless look, but so do many lipstick companies. So, which one is the better buy? Let’s take a look and delve into the truths of lipsticks and stains!

What Is Lip Stain?

A lip stain is just that – a stain. Lip stains add actual color to your lips, not just a waxy color or gloss. It’s designed to last, just like stains (of any kind!) really do.

What’s The Difference Between Lipstick and Lip stain?

Lipsticks are made of colored wax. They give you not only color, but a glossy sheen as well. Since lipsticks are made of colored wax, they don’t last as long since they’re able to rub off on any surface – your cups, your lover’s cheek, your teeth, you name it.

Lip stains, on the other hand, are designed to last. Because they’re not made of wax and are strictly color stain, you won’t leave a pretty lip mark on any surface, cups included.

The Pros of Lip Stain:

As you can probably guess, lip stains are great for just about any occasion. They’re great for brides, for long days in the office, for a hot date, a party out with the girls, or any other occasion you can think of. You don’t have to worry about a faded smear, or sticky residue. There are also several different colors for you to choose from, giving you a fantastic variety. No matter your skin tone, you’re bound to find a color that enhances your natural beauty. A girl can never have too many lip stains!

The Cons of Lip Stain:

There are a ton of different pros, as we’ve seen, but every good invention has a bad side. So, what are the bad sides to lip stain?

  • For starters, you have to take an extra step with lip stains – lip stains have a matte finish, making your lips look dry and unfinished. To fix this problem, many companies add a gloss to go with the stain, so you have that perfect finish.
  • With lipstick, you’re supposed to smooch your lips together to evenly spread the color around. Not with lip stain. If you kiss your lips together, you’ll be left with a mess. Wait till the stain is dry on your lips, then apply your gloss. No rubbing needed, so if you’re used to lipstick, this could be an adjustment for you.
  • It’s hard to get off, which can be a good thing during the day, but a bit of a pain at night when you’re washing your face. You’ll have to spend a little extra time scrubbing to get it all off.
