Perfect your no-makeup pout.

Lip tints and lip stains are a hot sensation in the beauty industry and gaining popularity quickly. From celebrities to fashion influencers, everybody is going crazy over this new trend.

These products are not just lightweight, they are also long-lasting and many are nourishing as well. Colour changing, oil stain hybrids, cheek-lip combo, the list goes on. And one of the best things about a lip stain is that it will not smudge all over your teeth within a few minutes of applying it.

Most of these are water or gel-based and provide the much liked “no-makeup look.” They can also be used as a base for your lip balm or lipstick.

From soft and blurry to sheer and balmy, we have found some of the best lip stains that will make for an ideal substitute for lipsticks and give you that soft and supple pout.
