A new romance means lots of kissing. And my lipstick can’t keep up. I mostly have given up on lips all together but for a night out I need a lip stain. I discovered Tarte’s Natural Matte Lip Stain via recommendation from a synchronized swimmer in the famous Aqualillies. I figure if a girl who spends most of her career in the water loves the stuff it must have staying power. This stain is unlike others I’ve tried in that it is luscious, moisturizing and lovely, normally I find long wear stuff chalky and uncomfortable. I love it overall, however I must admit it does require some re application from time to time, it’s no match for my very affectionate companion. But overall I love this vegan lip stain, totally worth it and I’ve gotten lots of compliments wearing the “Fiery” colour.
