Guys, I'm in love. For reals. But don't go sending me congratulations or anything - it's with a lipstain, not a person.
I first heard about NYC's Smooch Proof 16HR Lipstain in Hannah's post over at xoJane. I'm usually kinda hesitant about lip colour as it tends to look weird on me and I hate wasting my money. Lucky for me, these suckers are under five bucks a piece... Which clearly meant I had to pick up two, right?
Neverending Nude (pictured in my ridiculous self-portrait below) is a "you-but-better" kind of shade, while Champagne Stain is a pretty, poppy red. These are crazy easy to apply and they last. Like, forever (real time: approximately six hours). As an added, super-fun bonus, they kind of look like Sharpies so you can freak your friends out when they think you're drawing on your face with a toxic marker (note: this actually happened).
Depending on my mood, I'll either go for the matte Brenda Walsh look or add a little gloss for some added shine. One downside to the gloss: while it looks super pretty, it does seem to shorten the life of the lipstain. Consider yourselves warned.
My lip stain and I will be registered at The Bay and Home Outfitters. I probably won't take his last name...
