They say that a woman’s best accessory is her smile. And while a good oral hygiene assures that we have pearly whites to go with our smile, we tend to overlook another important thing that makes up our smile – our lips. I know I am also guilty of this.
There was a time that I use 3-4 different products on my lips when doing my makeup: a lip balm first or a lip primer, then lipstick/lip stain, and finally a lip gloss. Sometimes I also use a lip liner. All of these weigh down on my lips and I can tell that they feel heavy. I also tend to abuse my lips without me even noticing it: I bite it when I am anxious, I use it to hold or bite down pens and pencils for a moment when I need to use both of my hands, and I cannot even remember the last time I exfoliated them!
Thanks to the innovative beauty products, we now have different lip products who have more than one function and give that extra protection and TLC that our lips need so much. It comes in 14 different shades, so I am pretty sure that anybody can find the shade that will suit them. I have mine in LLS115 Blow Your Mind, which is a reddish with slight pink color. After that first use, I am hooked.
I like that this lip stain comes with an applicator, I can definitely control the application of the product to my lips. And while I have no problem with using my fingertips in dabbing lip products, it can be quite tricky when you are already dressed to go out as I am sure the last thing we need is a lip stain on our clothes.
Another good thing about J.Cat’s Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain is its high pigmentation. I like how vibrant and true the colors look when put on. It is also true to its promise of a long-lasting color; unfortunately while the product did not actually dry my lips, I still felt the need to use a lip balm for more hydration. I am also attributing this need to the humid weather, plus we went for a motorbike ride at the Interstate. I guess the product held its ground since my lips did not chap.
However, this lip stain is matte and for those who prefer a glossy look, you can opt for a lipgloss of the same shade or even a colorless one as this is already so pigmented.
What I like about J.Cat Beauty LLS115 Blow Your Mind Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain:
• Very pigmented.
• Easy to apply.
• Long lasting.
• Non-irritating, non-drying.
What I do not like about J.Cat Beauty LLS115 Blow Your Mind Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain:
• Not glossy.
• Ships only in the US and Canada. International orders are subject to some arrangements.
J.Cat Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain is pretty impressive for a product that is affordable. It can definitely compete against other brand names of the same product. I will definitely get myself another lip stain when I am done with my current one, but I think I will try another one of their shades. Or maybe two. I am sure that you will all agree with me that there is no such thing as too many lip products, right?
I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars. And I will be definitely making a room for this in my makeup kit.
And always remember, your smile is your best accessory. Let the beauty of your hearts shine through and flash that genuine smile. It does not matter if we speak different languages, a true smile is an international language of beauty.
