The 23 Best Long-Lasting Lip Tints and Stains of 2020 — Reviews
On the long list of South Korea’s many fine exports — including, but not limited to, sheet masks, pimple patches, and K-pop — lie lip tints and lip stains. These days, some of the best formulas for no-fuss, long-lasting color are coming straight from Seoul, thanks to Tonymoly, Innisfree, Etude House, and more. Luckily, you don’t need a plane ticket to shop for them, and one is just $5.
Several Western beauty brands have also mastered the K-beauty staple in their own ways. Maybelline New York offers a bold stain in crayon form. Buxom has a lip-plumping variety. Armani mastered a gloss that wears down to a wash of color. Revlon even makes a velvety tint with a cushion applicator for easily achieving the highly sought-after blurred lip look.
No matter which lip stain iteration you’re into, one thing about these products is for sure: All you need to do is dab a bit of pigment on the center of your lips, smack them together, and go on with your day. Not a single drop of color will travel to your teeth, and post-meal reapplication won’t be a concern. You’ll be committed to the hue for hours. They’re called stains for a reason, people. They are in it for the long haul. You might as well consider the products below as a list of 23 low-maintenance lipsticks.
