This is a unique product as it is a lip stain that doesn't dry out your lips. It has a Fawn-like color and when applied (a light touch is best with lip stains) it will also cast a slight beautiful pink. I love a lip stain as a base color, because when gloss wears off, the lips still have a base color. I sometimes apply it before I go to bed so that I wake up with lips! Lip Stain #2 applies slightly shiny and dries to a matte finish. A little goes a long way!
