After waiting for 2 long months, finally the holiday season has arrived with Eid 😛 Now, one after another we will have many festivals and that will call for lots of new cloths and makeup. And in such times long lasting makeup is a must. So today I will review a long lasting form of lip color for you all and that is lip stain.
Get beautiful precision color that lasts for hours with this pigment rich lip stain marker. The pen-like tip lets you draw on color easily for a streak & smudge free professional look. Infused with nourishing Vitamin E to hydrate and moisturize lips.
My Experience with ELF Lip Stain – Crimson Crush:
As the name suggests, the shade “Crimson Crush” is a deep crimson red. This blue-based red whitens teeth and looks good on fair as well as on dark skin. This is a shade which we would love to wear during festivals and weddings and as it is not a bright red, it can be worn on regular days too. This shade is well pigmented and covers my lips completely in 2-3 swipes.
As most lip stains would do, this one is also drying in nature, but a good lip balm underneath can take care of that dryness. It takes a while for the color to dry on lips, but once it dries, it stays there forever. It survives heavy meals with a bit of fading, but that can be managed with a little lip balm application. To remove this long-lasting lip stain completely, you will have to use a makeup remover.
As this lip stain comes in a marker form, it is very easy to use and carry around. It has a nice pointy tip which makes application on the corners of the lips easy and effective. It has a faint cherry smell to it which is not bothersome and it is completely tasteless. For $2, it is a good bet for first time lip stain users and for people who want to try various shades of lip stains without going losing heavily from their pockets. I recommend this to every girl who likes long-lasting lip color and to girls who are looking for a perfect cool-toned deep crimson red. However, if you have very dry, chapped lips, then please stay away as this lip stain would enhance the dryness of your lips.
Pros of ELF Lip Stain – Crimson Crush:
- A beautiful cool-toned deep crimson red color.
- This shade would suit fair as well as dark skin tones.
- Long-lasting lip color.

Cons of ELF Lip Stain – Crimson Crush:
