The Promise
I purchased the Lara Mercier Lip Stain in Mocha because it looked so cute in its little glass bottom container and the color was great. So for $20 I purchased this lip stain that promised to leave my lips with a mocha stained color that would also shine for a long time.
I was so excited to put on this lip stain and when I did, I immediately disliked the color, it appeared to be much lighter on my lips and dry looking. If anyone has ever seen red dirt that is what it looked like on my lips. There was no shine just a clay-like dry product on my lips. The only positive note is that it has a very smooth application, but who really cares if it looks horrible once applied. And yes it is long lasting because that stain was hanging on to my lips for dear life.
Clearly for me this product gets tossed into the "SKIP IT" files, but everything is not for everyone so if you have tried this product and you enjoyed it please share your experience. Otherwise please let me know if you have found a great lip stain that gives you the perfect amount of color and a glossy finish all at the same time.
