mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain

The Muse hearts herself some lip stain!   It’s truly a staple product for me and I can’t really say a time I’m not staining prior to glossin’ up which is why I’m every so intrigued by the new mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain ($9).

A gloss and a stain, in one formula? Ok, count me in!

Housed in a click style pen with brush applicator this innovative gloss promises color that goes on like a high-shine gloss and wears long like a rich stain plus it has a minty fragrance and taste if the first two haven’t convinced you.

Available in four shades the mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain are $9 each and available from

I already have Pop and Lolli in my cart, review to come.

Shades below are Lolli, Bella, Bare, and Pop.

Whatcha think?

A stain and a gloss?

Sound good?

    • 3/1/10 13:13 the Muse:

      me too tango :)


  • 3/1/10 15:26 Fabiola:

    I love the idea of a combination of a gloss and a stain. Aah, and it has a minty fragrance to boot! I love minty lip products. Mark, please come over to the Netherlands (why, yes, Fabiola, do talk to a brand as if it were a person, like a man named Mark, for instance, lol). 😀


    • 3/1/10 15:43 the Muse:

      me too fabiola! I wonder how it’ll work! 😀 Me too, hate unscented/unflavored glosses! awww I HOPE it does!!!! 😀 LOL! you’re silly :) “Listen Mark…’s the thing…” hehe


  • 3/1/10 19:36 Emily:

    I am liking the sound of this lipstain! I was just browsing the Avon website for new products. Can’t wait to read your review!


    • 3/1/10 19:37 the Muse:

      emily me too. guilty! I was browsing this morning :)


  • 3/1/10 19:51 Sami:

    Lancome Le Laque Fever sounds a lot similar to this except the applicator. You have to post what you think cause I’m all about cheaper things.


    • 3/1/10 19:54 the Muse:

      you got it sami 😀 I’d say it would be considerably cheaper than Lancome for shiz 😀 I’ll let you know doll!


  • 3/1/10 23:49 Ashley:

    I am a Mark. Rep. and I got the Gloss Gorgeous last month. I L-O-V-E it! Beautiful color and a very light minty scent. Even ladies with sensitive lips (ME!) can use this minty, stainy (not a word, but an excellent description), glossy goodness! Lolli is my favorite and is a FAB red-pink color. I can’t wait to hear what you think about them.


    • 3/2/10 9:49 the Muse:

      hey ashley great news I’m eager to try :) w00t!


  • 3/2/10 0:15 Mollie:

    I bought it as a demo and it’s pretty nice. I got Bare, which sadly is very close to my natural lip color- I couldn’t tell if it stained all that well! However I LOVE the texture (very smooth and slick) and the gloss element remains for a long time. I want to try Pop next.


    • 3/2/10 9:39 the Muse:

      hey mollie good news about the texture that much makes me happy :)


  • 3/2/10 6:30 Hana:

    I can’t wait for your review. 😀


    • 3/2/10 9:12 the Muse:

      aw thanks hana 😀 always a pleasure to hear someone is eager to hear my babbling about new product *hugs*


  • 3/2/10 20:19 Julie:

    Truth be told, I have all 4 and they suck, IMHO! Decent gloss, okay click pen, minimal mint, and virtually no stain…just being honest! :0(


    • 3/2/10 20:26 the Muse:

      julie I love honesty 😀 damn…I’m kinda disappointed. oh wells 😛 I think I may haul at least two just for the sake of slapping up a review!


  • 3/2/10 20:20 Mimi:

    Will be interested to see how long they wear and if they get the ‘worn off in the middle’ look :)


    • 3/2/10 20:26 the Muse:

      mimi curious ’bout that too! :)


  • 3/10/10 0:43 Isabella:

    I have them in Pop and..oh, either Bare or Bella, I can’t remember and my purse is allll the way on the other side of the..small apartment. I REALLY like them. I find that mine are quite minty, actually. The gloss has a nice long wear to it. Pop is very pretty, almost neutral pink. I can’t tell how well it stains, because when on me, it just looks like I have gloss on. The other one (I really do think it was Bare..) is a deeper shade, also a long wearing gloss, and the stain, though subtle, is definitely there. Put it on around noon, and my lips were still tinted 4 hours later after a baseball game, including ballpark hotdog and lemonade…


    • 3/10/10 12:38 the Muse:

      nice Isabella 😀 they sound AWESOME :)


  • 4/7/10 16:09 Sue:

    Just got mine today! How the heck do you get it to start working? I clicked the end like 15 times thinking that would work….but nothing. Can anyone fill me in? I guess I am the only one who can’t get it working!
    Excited to try it though!


    • 4/7/10 16:21 the Muse:

      uh oh sounds faulty sue! return! this happens to me with Stila lipglaze all the time :(


  • 4/21/10 6:34 Els:

    and, how did they work for you Muse?


    • 4/21/10 8:37 the Muse:

      hi els got a review coming shortly hun :)


    • 6/21/10 16:29 karyn:

      Just keep clicking it!! I had to click mine about 15-20 times and then it worked. :)

      ps. I’m a new reader and here is my review..

      I got Pop and Lolli. I have only tried Pop so far. It’s a bright creamy pink color. When I put a lot of it on, it looked gorgeous and more for a “night out” look. For more casual, I put on very little and it’s more natural looking. I think I’m going to try Bare, too, because I prefer a more muted pinky-browny shade.

      As for staying power – it’s fabulous. The best if any lip stain I’ve used… and I’ve tried them all. This one stays on all day & eve, even through eating. And it’s COMFORTABLE. Once the gloss wears off, I just put a lip balm over top for comfort. It’s great. I ate a hamburger for lunch and wiped my mouth, licked my lips, etc, and the color was still on – not perfectly, but it was still there, which was impressive. And it didn’t wear off unevenly.

      The scent – I was scared it would bother me because I’m scent-sensitive. But it is very light and goes away after application.


      • 6/21/10 16:40 the Muse:

        hi karyn!

        thanks for the mini review 😀 they sound great. I actually have two but didn’t dig into them yet 😀


  • 4/21/10 9:35 Sue:

    Update re: mine not working:
    I ended up clicking the end maybe 30 x and it started to work. I emailed Avon – and they said you need to click it 20+ times to get it to flow.

    I REALLY like the colour of: POP, though the stain aspect isn’t really “stain” like the Cover Girl Lip Stain for example. It’s more of a hint of colour left over once the gloss has worn off.
    I also got BELLA – and it’s a bit brighter than the picture showed…and I was hoping for a deeper colour – not so sure I like it yet – I will have to wear it again to see.
    I did find them to be a bit sticky to wear though. The stickiness lessens as you wear them. I had checked out some reviews on Avon and almost all of them said “it wasn’t sticky to wear at all”…so I find that a little silly – because they are a bit sticky/tacky in texture…but it’s not that bad. I really enjoy wearing the Gloss Gorgeous!
    Hope that helped!

    I love these, they are amazing. I used Bare and Pop.I have no complaints about these!


  • 8/23/10 23:18 Meriana:

    Hey I actually work at an AVON store and I love these lip stains! We had sold out of Bella, so I had ordered myself one. I love the color of it, its the perfect shade, and it lasts for quite a while.


    • 8/24/10 11:49 the Muse:

      great news meriana happy to hear they are cool 😀 I have some but haven’t had a sec to test yet!
