Sephora Be You Lip Stain Review & Swatches

Sephora Be You Lip Stain is a new gel lip stain inspired with a tangerine-inspired color. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is a new product. Sephora has done lip gels and stains in the past but not one that was tangerine in color nor one that was self adjusting.

I was fairly curious about a self adjusting shade of tangerine so I purchased it.

Take a look!


YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain Review & Swatches

My first experience with lipstain/cheek stain was when I purchased the Schick Stick off of HSN about 10 years ago (it might have been even be longer than 10 years ago).

Yeah, the Schick Stick, sounds like a razor to me. But actually it was a cheek and lip stain housed in a tube with a sponge applicator. It was created by the super friendly, utterly gracious, and oh so gorgeous Morgen Schick (she e-mailed me randomly a few years ago just to say hello and thanks for liking her product, I was gobsmacked to say the least).

Morgen, to this very day, still sells her brilliant cheek stain/lipstain and it remains a fond favorite of mine.

Lip and Cheek Stains have evolved so much though. New packaging, formulas, etc…where as before the market was lacking, now the market is saturated with all kinds of stains.

I think one of the main complaints about stains is the irony that they have such a long wear time on cheeks but go drier on lips and sometimes don’t wear as well.

The new Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain is testimony that hope is still alive for a lip stain that wears all day with a hydrating formula.

Are you getting excited for the Pixi Glow Collection? I am!

Dude, it’s a Disney collaboration, what’s not to get excited ’bout here right?

Pixi teamed up with Disney and our darling Tinkerbell to create a gorgeous little collection of Spring goodies that Tink herself would probably squeal over.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the collection early but you’ll be able to get your greedy little hands on it soon from and Target.

Let’s take a little peek at the Pixi Magic Tink Tint ($16)!



Maybelline Super Stay Stain Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Truly I appreciate all the big beauty boasts. Longer lashes up to 100x the length, 165 hour foundation wear, 48 hour lipstick color, etc…etc…


They get more and more ridiculous. Obviously drugstore brands have some seriously misleading claims.

So is the case with the new Maybelline Super Stay Stain Gloss. 10 hours of wear? More like 10 minutes.
