Clarins Water Lip Stain Provides Long-Wearing Color for Summer Lip Looks

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

I used to be obsessed with lip stain and this new Clarins Water Lip Stain is reminding me of that obsession. Seriously, I wasn’t a gloss girl, not a lipstick one either, it was all lip stain, all the time several years ago. I liked the way lip stain gave me that just bitten look. This was wayyyyyyyyyy before lip stain became so crazy popular in Korea and the Schick Stick was a thing.

Clarins Water Lip Stain is actually matte in finish and made with a 77% water-base. Don’t worry, they promise that although matte it’s still really moisturizing and leaves your lips quite soft with a rich color pay off. Actually, the pigment is customizable since it allows you to apply a sheer wash of it or build up several coats for more intensity and pop!

Shades include:

  • Water Pink
  • Water Orange
  • Water Red
  • Water Purple

Don’t they look edible? Like grenadine in a cherry cola!

Clarins Water Lip Stain are $28 and available now at with free shipping or

P.S. I have a brunch shirt but I feel like I need a Taco Tuesday shirt, this might do the trick:

Too silly!? Especially for someone who doesn’t technically drink! But still, it’s corny cute.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      Hi Elaine! Thank you so glad you like it. I had a great time! Caught up with old friends, ate way too much good food, and just generally overindulged in life ;-D thanks for asking!

  • Christine

    Does anyone remember the L’OrΓ©al Pinch if Color stain that came in a bottle with a brush that looked like nail polish? I LOVED that, and have never found a dupe for it. Wonder if these would work, hoping you will review them, Muse.

    • Isabella Muse

      hells yes that stuff was awesome ;-D I dunno if they’ll work great on face though! That would be nice if they did!

  • Andrea

    they sound lovely, could you post pictures?. Are they drying after wearing? like the Lancome juicy shakers, pigmented lip oils but they dryed the heck out of my lips.

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t have them yet. Literally just got back from vacation! If I get them will def review!

  • Anna Fantasia

    I got the red one and I love it! The red stays put and lasts on me for a while. Best part for me was that there is finally a bright red that wont bleed when I eat greasy or oily foods… I also applied a gloss over it and it didn’t affect the formula. I’m going back for pink or purple next. Cant wait to hear your take on these Muse.

      they sound awesome!!! ;-D Thanks for the update! I’m waiting for my order now πŸ˜€
