let me just say that lip stains are awesome. i know because i used to love these felt-tipped pens from the body shop back in highschool. i could swipe that baby on in the morning and still have pretty lips through track practice. sadly my running career was short lived but my beauty obsession has prevailed. and thanks to that little life trade off, i can bring you exciting news like the launch of tarte’s natural lip stains! these are insanely moisturizing, drenching lips in hydration (6000% says tarte and i won’t challenge them) with perfect pigment that lasts forever. the end result is a gorgeously softening lip balm-ish formula that stains your lips. now, why didn’t i think of that?
