Every makeup kit can benefit from a good lip stain. While lipsticks pack a punch, they can take a lot of time and effort to perfect. If you’re after a lip colour that’s a bit or more effortless, or simply want a sheerer, natural lip, then lip stains are the perfect option for you. Lip colour can be quite tricky to get right for every skin tone, but here are some of the best lip stains that will compliment everyone!
Although this product is marketed as a matte lipstick, its sheer formula is far closer to a lip stain. For a blotted lip look in perfect popsicle-stain colours, Glossier’s Generation G is the way to go. The brand is all about natural looking makeup, so they’ve created 6 classic shades to compliment every skin tone.
I don’t know how she did it, but Bobbi Brown somehow created a lipstick that gives you a just-blotted lipstick look without the need for blotting. With a super comfortable, lip-balm like texture, these lip colours stain your lips to leave the perfect amount of colour that lasts all day. Available in 21 stunning shades, you’re sure to find one that matches your skin tone.
Just like its name suggests, this tint is perfect for achieving a sun-kissed, flushed look on both your lips and cheeks. The jelly-like texture offers a just-bitten look to lips, and even conditions and moisturises your lips throughout the day. If you want a lip stain that can work triple duty AND compliment any skin tone, this should be your go-to! This is definitely one of the best lip stains.
Here’s a fab lip stain option for natural-beauty lovers everywhere. Lip2Cheek is a wonderfully sheer, yet buildable formula that is suitable for both lips and cheeks. There are so many shades to choose from so you’ll be able to find a bright pop of colour, a deep sultry berry or the perfect nude shade for every skin tone.
Not only do these lip tints look amazing on your lips, their sleek, modern packaging also makes them look amazing on your makeup counter! These organic lip tints offer a sheer, sateen finish for a super subtle lip stain. These come in 6 bold shades that will suit any and every skin tone.
If you’re after a lip stain that offers a shiny, glossy finish, then look no further than the Lancome Juicy Shaker. This formula is a super pigmented oil stain that leaves a strong dose of colour on lips but still adds a juicy, glossy finish. There are so many shades available so it’ll be hard to choose just one!
I’ve never met one person who hasn’t tried Benefit’s Benetint at least once. This universally flattering rose colour is so easy to swipe onto your lips and cheeks, leaving a perfect, natural looking stain. It doesn’t hurt that the packaging is super convenient and that it comes with a subtle rose scent. This is a must have stain in every makeup bag.
Lip stains are a huge deal in the K-Beauty world, so of course this list had to feature a Korean Beauty brand! 3CE’s tattoo lip stain is a must-have for anyone who wants a lip stain that will literally last all day, even with eating, drinking and kissing involved! While these tins will suit every skin tone, they are not for the faint of heart — all the colours are punchy and poppy, no nudes allowed!
Stila’s Crush Lip (and cheek) stains are special because they react to your skin’s pH level to customise a shade that totally complements you. If you have a hard time finding your perfect lip stain shade, then definitely give Stila a try. This formula is also super nourishing, so your lips will look healthy, not dry. This is definitely one of the best lip stains!
This super cool formula by Clinique is unlike any other lip stain I’ve ever seen. Basically, you dip a tiny powder brush into powder pigments before blotting the sponge-like applicator onto your lips. The Pop Lip Shadow comes in a velvety-matte finish and is easy to build and control to create the perfect stain for your skin tone.
