15 Best Lip Stains October 30, 2018

Women are divided into two categories – ones who love makeup, and the ones who don’t. The women who don’t love makeup find something as simple as lipstick a bit too much for their liking. Their lips feel heavier when they wear it, and there’s no way to convince them otherwise. But even they agree that they need something to keep their lips hydrated and moisturized. Besides, a little color bit of color doesn’t hurt anyone. Lip tints or stains are a great option if you fall in this category of people.

They don’t contain many chemicals that can end up in your system inevitably as you tend to lick up anything on your lips. I love my lipsticks, but I’m also a fan of lip stains and always carry one in my bag. So, here’s a round-up of the best lip stains out there. Check it out!
