Here is our issue with liquid lip stains: They do not last.
But did you know that there's a #makeuphack you can do with your lip pencil to get stained lips instantly? All you have to do is use the pencil to outline your lips, and then spread it on the rest of your puckers with a brush or your fingers. Top it off with gloss for some shine, or use a primer!
Lip pencils generally last longer than lip stains, because the formula is really made for lipstick to adhere to (that's why makeup artists use a lip pencil before they apply lipstick to make 1. the color pop; and 2. to make the color stay). A lip stain, on the other hand, is usually very sheer and lightweight—so it doesn't offer a lot of coverage. If it does, it doesn't last long.
