Kiss-proof lip stains for every price range


Every girl likes to throw on a little lipstick or gloss every now and again to brighten up her look. But here’s the thing—no matter how many times you reapply, lip colors have a tendency to end up on the rim of your glass, leaving you with a faded look that's not so cute. This year, prevent potential pout disasters and invest in a long-lasting stain in a trendy fall shade. Unlike lipsticks and glosses, stains will stay all day, no matter how many cups of coffee you sip or cheeks you kiss. Check out our faves below!
