Product Review: s’stains Long-lasting Satin Lip Shines

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: s’stains
Name: : Long-lasting Satin Lip Shines
Size: 10 mL
Price: $14.00 USD

Shade Tried: Coral

Winter is here and that usually means dry lips for me, but I still yearn for beautiful glossy looking lips, so once again I am on the search for new products that will give me colour and moisture.

From A Beautiful Life’s website: "S'stains are 100% natural, paraben-and petrochemical-free satin-y lip glosses. Each color is packed with natural lip conditioners, like shea butter, vitamin E and the near-miraculous argan oil! It also packs a pleasantly plumping trio of essential oils (cassia, peppermint, and ginger) - just enough to smooth fine lines and give you the perfect pout without stinging (ouchies!)"

To Purr About:
- available in 4 versatile shades
- glides on effortlessly
- does not dry out my lips or irritate them
- very light feeling – not sticky or heavy
- pleasant peppermint scent
- leaves my lips looking glassy and shiny

Claws Out:
- doesn't stay on very long
- a bit hard to control the application of (tube did not promote consistent flow)

Final Comments:
This is the first lip stain product I’ve ever tried.

I was a bit shocked when I first applied this product on my lips and smelt/tasted the peppermint. I really enjoyed how light and airy this lip stain felt. It wasn’t overly sticky or heavy which I find some lip glosses. The shade was fun and flirty and a little of the lip stain went a long way in giving my lips colour.

My only complaints were that this product didn’t stay on as long as I would like which made re-application often necessary, and also that the consistency (lightness) made it a bit hard to apply this product evenly – which is no problem when you have a mirror handy.

Rating (out of 5):

If you have a product that you've tried and would like to write a review, send me an email (click the Contact section!)
