I love decorating my lip with beautiful colours, but I am a clumsy lipstick user. Lipstick once applied, never stays more than one meal or a coffee for me. I always wanted to know how I can keep my lip colour on for long (I even googled “how to eat with lip stick on :P”). Somewhere in the process of searching for the perfect lip colour which can last long, I came to know about lip stains. So, the last time when I was in Wal-Mart, I decided to buy one lip stain and came across New York Color Smooch Proof 16Hour Lip Stain. It is available in 10 beautiful shades.
4.99$ for 3 ml.
What NYC Smooch Proof 16H Lip Stain Claims:
- It is the Colour that lasts up to 16 hours.
- Colour will not transfer or rub off, even when eating or drinking.
- Lightweight formula, bare-lip feel, matte finish.
- Precise and even application with the pointy tip.
- Allows you to build colour.
Water-based, lightweight formula enriched with pro vitamin B5 moisturizer.
My Experience with NYC Smooch Proof 16H Lip Stain – Champagne Stain:
This is my first ever lip stain. It comes in a marker like packaging, which is very handy and travel friendly. I always keep it in my handbag. It has a pen-like tip which allows precise application of colour. NYC Smooch Proof 16Hour Lip Stain is a lightweight lip colour. It smells like cherries, which is very tempting. The colour “Champagne Stain” is a pink shade with brown undertone, and this colour comes out well on my pigmented lips.
The lips feel a bit dry if they are not moisturised properly before using this lip stain. So, I always apply lip balm on my lips before using NYC Lip Stain. Now, about the staying power, I am quite happy with it. I wear it mostly at work or sometimes at home also. It lasts me through one meal and 2-3 coffee breaks, though the colour fades a bit, it still looks like a beautiful pink. I feel the 16-hour staying claim is bit too much; it stays well for 6-8 hours, which is quite good for me. With single swipe, it gives more natural colour and with multiple swipes, it gives a sexy bright colour. It has matte texture, so it’s perfect for day time and for work.
