While we’re on the topic of how to dress during the in-between seasons, let’s talk about lip stains. Why?
Because they’re awesome. Why?
Because they’re subtle, and pretty, and easy to apply, and not as high maintenance lipstick, and they give your face the boost of colour it needs to make you look fresh and awake, without looking like you’ve really tried.
At the moment I’m all about YSL’s Glossy Stain in Rouge Laque. It’s exactly the right shade of red.
One coat is perfect for daytime, when your face needs a little kickstart with a pop of colour.
I’m not usually into gloss, but this one kind of sets so the shine factor isn’t too… well, glossy. It’s definitely not matte, but the glossy texture feels nice and makes your lips look fuller.
A few coats turns-up the intensity so it’s the perfect all-in-one to keep in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups from AM to PM.
