Recently I heard about Peel-Off Lip Stains from Korea, which I will feature today. (I first read about them on newbeauty.com.) They are a little pricey, ranging from $22 - $30 for a 1.6 ounce size. Applied to your lips wet and sticky (like lip gloss), reportedly, the liquid has to set for ten minutes, then it peels off your lips in one solid piece, leaving a stain. What results is a natural pop of color that the manufacturer says lasts for up to 10 hours.
But is it worth the extra time, money and effort? Frankly, I don't know. It isn't cheap, and it takes more steps to color than lipstick, gloss or regular stain, which doesn't have to set, or be peeled off. And, what about the "up to 10 hour" staying power? That would be a winning selling point, if indeed, it turns out to be true. Usually though, such a claim is exaggerated. Regardless of the consistency and quality of lip color, I always have to reapply it during a day. So if a Peel-Off Lip Stain doesn't do something better, why would you buy it?
Nonetheless, since it exists, I'd try it in a heartbeat. Research! How about you?
Without an open mind, we'd never discover all the fantastic, "how did we not know about these," new products, right? According to credible beauty sources, lip stain is the next big thing.
