How do the stars look so pouty in every paparazzi photo? They likely use a long-lasting lip stain to give them that bright, even finish no matter where they’re headed or how many selfies they plan to take along the way. The last thing you want during an important interview or first date is your lip color to disappear, so you need an option that stays put, even through kissing and eating. To give your lips staying power, try one of these eight long-lasting lip stains when you’re looking to make the most of your pout in photos and in real life!
Natural lip stains:
While many people don’t think of natural lip colors as being long lasting, they can actually last longer than traditional lipstick. There are also a number of different shades to choose from that can provide the perfect color for any occasion.
This lip stain is made up of organic ingredients including shea butter and chamomile extract. It smells sweet like strawberry jam and has a soft, creamy consistency that is easily applied to the lips with just one swipe. It’s available in six different shades including Berry Berry Good which has tiny bits of glitter mixed into it giving it an extra bit of shine.
*Tarte Tinted Lip Balm:
This product combines moisturizing benefits with sheer pigmentation. The formula provides hydration while simultaneously tinting your lips with a subtle wash of color.

Accentuating your cupid’s bow
To accentuate your cupid’s bow, apply lip stain to the outer corners of your mouth. Blend until you achieve the desired shape. Next, color in with an appropriate lipstick and voila! You are ready for that picture-perfect pout!
Matte liquid lipstick
Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey – For those days when you’re running late and just need to throw on something quick, this is the product to choose. The color is subtle enough to not overwhelm your complexion but intense enough that it lasts all day. The matte formula stays put until you take it off at night and moisturizes your lips with shea butter and vitamin E along the way. A definite must have for any makeup bag!
Lipstick is the most coveted beauty product, but it can also feel heavy and leave your lips feeling dry. To avoid this, opt for mattifying lipstick that will keep your pout looking fresh all day long. 1) Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Rikugien has an anti-aging formula with moisturizing ingredients to soothe dry lips while still providing color payoff. 2) Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk offers deep coverage with a velvety matte finish that lasts up to six hours.

Here are five creamy matte lipstick options to keep in your purse or desk drawer. 1) CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipstick – Very Berry; 2) L’Oreal Infallible Matte Liquid Lipstick – Bombshell Pink; 3) Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink – Touch of Spice; 4) NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – London Calling; 5) Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Longwear Lipstick – Heather Silk.
It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with lipsticks and lip stains. But when it comes to choosing the best products for moisturizing your pucker, there are a few factors to keep in mind. First off, you’ll want to look for a lipstick or stain that contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found throughout the human body (most notably in connective tissues) which has been shown to have hydrating properties. Next, you’ll want to find something without petroleum or alcohol ingredients—since they can dry out lips over time.
For the longest lasting lip color, try a balm stain. This is one of the most popular long-lasting lip colors on the market and is usually made with natural ingredients. It’s not as drying on your lips as other stains and can be used as an everyday product. With this type of lip color, you won’t have to worry about reapplying it throughout the day!
