Lip stains are my current obsession lately and you can blame that on their excellent staying power and versatility. The latest addition to my collection is Liptini Lip Liqueur Lip & Cheek Stain 4013 Pink Lady and it comes courtesy of Meg's Make-up 250 points package that I received towards the end of last year.
The lip stain comes packaged in a small cardboard box that bears the company logo (I just love the little Martini glass and the brand's name!), ingredients and directions for use. The stain itself comes in a cute little plastic tube with a matt silver screw-off cap and a standard doe foot applicator. It has a jelly-like texture, smells yummy and has the most beautiful shade of burgundy-pink ever!
As the name suggests, the product can be used on both lips and cheeks but I prefer to use it as a lip stain for the simple reason that it looks too dark on my cheeks. The applicator is my favourite when it comes to liquid lip products and I have no issues with it.

I was surprised at how rapidly it dries as opposed to other lip stains I have which take considerably longer. The colour is build-able and I like to use it both on its own and under similar coloured lipsticks/lipglosses as it helps colour last longer. In terms of lasting power of the stain when worn alone, I can safely say that it lasts until I take it off. This brings me to another reason why I don't like using it as a cheek stain...it does it's job well at staining your fingers and takes some time to get off your cheeks!
Overall, this is hands down my favourite lip stain and I really would like to try more products from this brand!
