A Stain That Loves Lips

I love the look of a lip stain... on everyone but myself.

My lips tend to be dry, so traditional lip stains magnify any flakiness and make it look ten times worse. I lean towards lipsticks and glosses, and when I saw a little pot of color from Laura Mercier, that's what I thought I was looking at.

But there, on the packaging, were the words “Lip Stain.” Huh?

Instead of the typical liquid format, Laura Mercier's lip stains feel like gloss, and they look that way in the pot-but not on your lips. The finish is all the best parts of a stain without the uncontrollable unevenness.
