The Lipstick League Question of the Week
We all love our liquid lipsticks, but what are some of your favorite lighter lip products (sheer lipsticks, glosses, tints, stains, balms) for summertime?
G's answer: for the past few weeks I've been really into stains again. I busted out my "box o' free deluxe samples" and rediscovered Benefit Benetint, which I haven't used in years, and now I kind of want to purchase a full-size bottle again (but will of course wait for a good deal). I also repurchased a Palladio Lip Stain (one of the felt-tip marker types) at Sally Beauty recently and fell back in love with that one. I prefer the Palladio ones to other felt-tip marker type lip stains (like the CoverGirl one, etc.) because I like the way the colors look on my lips and I think the staying power is the best.
