Avon Extra Lasting Lip Stain + Balm - $12 - in 8 shades: Exposed, Heart, Lively, Raspberry, Ready Red, Rose, Tango and Berry Bitten - that offers the perfect combo of stay-put, buildable colour and a moisturizing balm. I have always used a lip balm over stains so I appreciate that there is one right there on the other end of the tube - I like to reapply the balm throughout the day so the only issue I can see arising is that I will run out of the balm before I do the stain!
Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca.
Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain - $18 - in 12 shades: Beige Extract, Pink Essence, Magenta Stain, Fuchsia Concentrate, Coral Extract, Strawberry Tint, Tangerine Stain, Orange Elixir, Red Essence, Ruby Extract, Cherry Nectar and Plum Concentrate. This one has some moisture to it, and a bit of shine which I like!
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain
- $12.95 - in 12 glossy shades: LA Exclusive, Barcelona Night, India Intrigue, Parisian Passion, Cannes Crush, Rio Rush, Miami Fever, Shanghai Sizzle, London Posh, Milan Moment, Stockholm Chic and New York Scene - that glide on lips with creamy comfort
and wet colour that are infused with vitamin E and aloe to moisturize
without stickiness. Eventually, the glossy top layer
disappears, but still leaves behind a stain so your lips aren't totally naked!
Lisamarie - the happiest day of my life was the day Sephora opened it's first store in Canada (thankfully in Toronto), second happiest day was before this when Sephora finally started shipping to Canada, third I guess would be my wedding day (but don't tell my husband where he ranks please!)
*** Christelle - I enjoy shoe shopping and drinking martinis...preferably at the same time!
