I wasn't sure that I would like these Mac VersiColour Lip Stains because there wasn't any swatches that I could find on my complexion but I decided to order them anyway because I love the whole idea of having stain lips. I will say that they did not disappoint... these lived up to my expectations and then some. After testing and wearing one of the colors all day, my lips were stained right up until the moment that I began to remove my makeup and prepare for my shower. I had about 8hrs of wear time and I can't tell you how pleased I was.

I bought these Colorpop Ultra Satin Lip stains under much hesitancy. I refer to my girls in our brown skin makeup group for the 411 on most of the affordable lip products that I don't normally buy to get their honest feedback. So when these came out, there was a plethora of comments and swatches with various opinions good and bad... just depending on who was swatching. Last year I purchased 14 of the original Colorpop Liquid Lipsticks, they were horrible on my lips and just not worth the efforts of applying. I finally gave them away to my friend's 16yr old daughter who just loved them! When these came out I hesitated but finally decided to get some of colors that I liked. There's 0.11ozs of products and these cost $6 each.

Some many independent cosmetic companies are getting my attention with their selection of liquid lipsticks. I just happened to stumble across swatches from Black Moon Cosmetics from a fellow beauty blogger that had purchased a couple and swatched them on her Blog. I thought the swatches were gorgeous on her brown skin so I followed the link to the website. There's are 8 liquid lipsticks in this collection and they retail for $18ea for 0.2 fl ozs of product.

This is my 3rd Kat Von D Vampria Liquid Lipstick purchase. This color is Vampria and i'm slowly collecting all the colors I like. These aren't cheap, $24 and I must say they are well worth it. The formula is very moisturizing, not like some of the cheaper ones on the market such as Colorpop and LA Splash. I haven't tried Anastasia's liquid lipsticks which are $20 but I do want to buy at least one for comparison.

These MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks are the bomb! I thought that I would try a few of these colors just to see what all the fuss was about. I actually ordered 5 of them but only 4 came. Mac shipping dept did something weird, three came in one box and one came in another box and I was like... where's the fifth one??? So I call them and the wanted to resend it but I just asked for a credit because I didn't feel like waiting another 5 days for it to arrive.... I was ready to photograph and swatch these babies!

After buying the Sephora Lip Stains, I've completely fallen in love with the liquid lipsticks now. I ordered mine online from allcosmeticswholesale, they were $11.98 at the time I ordered them and now they're $13.98, which is the same price on the LA Splash website. As you can see in the photo, there are various names for them, but they are all liquid lipsticks.

Over the last several months I finally purchased all the Too Faced liquid lipsticks that I had on my wish list, I have 11 total, 7 Melted and 4 Melted Metal which I reviewed here. The melted berry reminds me of some of my favorite fuchsia lipsticks by Mac except that these are liquid and long wearing not like many lipsticks I have.

I'm quietly moving away from lipsticks and becoming an adoring fan of the long-wearing. long-lasting lip stain world. Probably sometime in the near future I will have all my 100+ lipsticks up for sale in my Poshmark Closet. However, until that happens, they will remain tucked away in my lipstick drawer until further notice. My first foray into lip stains was actually last year when I picked up a package of lip tints from Costco's. The brand was from Pati Dubroff and they were called Aqua Tint Lip Glosses. They were very wet but dried matte with a slightly gloss finish.

I jumped on the bandwagon and purchased three of the new Too Faced Metal Liquified Metallic Lipsticks in Dream House, Jelly and Violet. I couldn't really find swatches on brown lips to really get a good idea of what the colors would look like so I ordered these on blind faith.

I was searching for a product that had staying power and something that I wouldn't have to keep re-applying for an extended period. I remember reading on another Blog about the lasting effects of these Sephora Lip Stains in Strawberry, Cherry & Red, so when I was in Sephora, I finally had the opportunity to swatch them for colors, I finally settled on these three.
