Anyone who's been reading Bella for a while knows that I have a soft spot for Laura Mercier products, so this review of Lip Stain ($20) in English Rose caught my eye. It's chock-full of good-to-know info, so I'll let reader bailaoragaditana give you the lowdown on the pros and cons of the product. She says:
"This isn't a lip stain. It's not a bad product, but it's not a lip stain. It's more akin to lipstick in pot form. The texture is slightly drier than your typical high-end lipstick, but perhaps that's the stain-y part? I'd recommend wearing this over a layer of lip balm because it's not terribly hydrating, either. It's not long-wearing, which is problematic for those who don't like sticking their fingers in gloss pots; I'd suggest having a lip brush handy for reapplying during the day. But the color is lovely. English Rose is a sort of opaque, gold-inflected rosy pink that really lives up to its name, and the formula is unique enough that I feel like I can get a lot of mileage out of it."
