Need something that will last all day on your lips? Opt for lip stains. Even lipsticks that boast about their long-wearing formulas don’t hold a candle to the staying power of a lip stain. Not only do they have a velvety liquid texture that glides over your lips, their formulas are designed to stay-put so you don’t have to worry about popping into the washroom often to reapply your lippie. We went ahead and curated the most gorgeous red lip stains that suit all skin tones in the gallery below, so you don’t have to hunt through multiple selections just to find your favourite.
