Ask the Product Junkie: Brown Lipstain

Stephanie asks: Any ideas for lipstains? I tried Lip Envy at Sephora. It was 15 or 16 dollars and the only stain they had that wasn't pink. (I am looking for something brown or at least natural lip color-no pink!) It is not good at all!!!!! It doesn't stain anything! It comes right off and is chunky when it wears off and mixes with the gloss I wear over it. Ahhhh!

Stephanie, I agree that Lip Envy is not a good product- I was not impressed with it at all. Did you know Sephora has a great return policy?

Anyway, I saw a friend from college this weekend (Hi Heather!) and of course I asked her what lipcolor she was wearing. Her coloring just happens to be similar to yours.

Turns out she wears Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor in True Chocolate. Fabulous brown color. This is a two step product with a stain/longwearing lipcolor on one end and a top coat on the other.

I love love love this product (two of my HG lippies are Overtime Lipcolor Sheer in Sheer Pomegranate and the Overtime Lipcolor in Perpetual Plum) and think you would like it too. You can apply the topcoat as much as you like and it's doesn't ball up the lipcolor.

Sasha, thanks for the tips. I always wondered about the lipstain issue. I need to get better at shopping Sephora...the dizzying array of products just makes me tired. BTW, right now I love L'oreal's High Intensity Pigment lip gloss. It actually stays on for a decent time, and although I may be delusional, it seems to make my lips look fuller. Plus its cheap.

Okay. I don't wear make-up, but I have to use it for M's dance performances. She has to wear hooker red to be seen on stage, and the best cheap stuff I've found is the new CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor. We used it for the first time last weekend. She has the Ever Red-dy color and it really stayed on great! I put it on her at 11ish and you could still tell she had colored lips at dinner. It comes with a clear top-coat for extra shine. It I wore make-up I'd totally use this for lip color, hands down. I totally wouldn't wear hooker red though. :)
