A silky, long-lasting lip stain that keeps lips covered with bold color from AM to PM—no need to reapply or touch up throughout the day.

  • "I purchased this lip stain because one of the make-up artists at Sephora had a swatch on her hand. It did not move so I was so curious to try it on my lips. OMG, this thing works wonders. I had to get it as soon as I put it on my lips. The lip stain stayed and did not move one bit, transfer, or feather. Does not dry your lips, and very comfortable to wear. " in 1402 reviews
  • "I recently purchased this at my nearest Sephora and holy cow... I was amazed (not totally considering how great all Sephora products are, I knew this would be good!) at how great this was! It dries right away, and lasts a LONG time! I loved this so much, and would totally advise someone to purchase it! :)" in 1140 reviews
  • "We went into Sephora looking for the very expensive YSL lip-stains, they didn't have this product at my local Sephora but was recommend by the Sales Rep to try this one. It is amazing. I wore it out to on the town, drinking and eating. It lasted through the night and I didn't touch it up once. Also it is not a pain to remove like most lip stains. This color is a perfect matte true red." in 1008 reviews

My favorite lipstains are matte, and I actually found out about this Sephora brand through reviews on influenster. I've always had issues with various brands of lipstick and lip stain drying out my lips, making them crack and peel, or getting everywhere (staining my clothes, getting on my teeth). I bought one color to test out, and finally found a formulation that works for me and couldn't be happier with it! This Sephora liquid lipstick has been a life saver, giving me the matte look I love, while at the same time keeping my lips healthier than past brands. I can use this for days before my lips start to dry. As for getting on my teeth and clothes, I havent had many issues in that respect. I noticed after my first few days wearing it, that if I let it dry after applying it, it lasts longer, and I dont have any accidental smudges. Some of the coloring does come off on my water cups, but not a lot and nothing compared to other brands I've tried. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because it doesn't last all day, though it does last for the majority of the day and it's easy to reapply. I can eat and drink, with minimal discoloration, I only notice discoloration at the end of the day when I've worn it for 10+ hours. Overall I love this brand, and cannot wait to try out more colors!

Really nice! I was introduced to this product by a sephora employee who recommended it to me after seeing me struggle to find a good-quality liquid lipstick in the color that I wanted (hot pink). At first I was hesitant as I've tried some BAD store-branded products but she ensured me that I will like it. So, I gave "Indian Pink" a shot and oh. My. Gosh. This lipstick is absolutely stunning. Super high pigmented, lightweight, and hydrating. While it does not last as long as a few other liquid lipsticks that I own (Stila, LipSense, Kat von D, Urban Decay) it is very, VERY close. I noticed it start peeling at the lip waterline in about an hour and after a few more hours and a lunch all that was left was an outline of my lips. However if I were just going out for cocktails I would have only needed a touchup. At the end of the day it was difficult to remove the rest of the lipstick (I had to scrub big time) which tells me that if I prepped my lips better and stayed away from greasy food it could have lasted all day. For the price this is a great buy- perfect for trying out a new shade without the financial commitment of a name brand. These lipsticks are definitely something to watch as I believe they will continue to get better and better.

LONG LASTING! GREAT PRODUCT! CHEAP PRICE! I got a recommendation from the store clerk after looking at her lipstick! I am currently wearing the lip stain as I type this! This is NOT SPONSORED! The original price of the lip stain is $14 I purchased two that they had on sale for half price! They lady was telling the truth because I never have to reapply the lipstick even after I eat, it doesn't transfer, and it is SO affordable! I got 2 lip stains for $14! There are so many options for colors. Something I would change is the size! While the container is full they are only 0.169oz and I would love to get a larger size of my favorite color (Shade 05). Also I would love to have the actual name of the color written on the lip stain bottle for reference! No filters (only a frame) were added to the photo so it is an accurate representation of the color!

I have tried almost every single liquid to matte out there. I am someone who over-draws the lip line with my lipstick and most mattes will feather as I sweat throughout the day. Or, they will flake when the moisture from the inside of your mouth hits the inside part of the lipstick. There's also the issue with some lipsticks physically drying out the lips to the point where your lips are cracking and feeling worse than when you put the lipstick on.

The Sephora cream lip stain as it sounds is somewhat misleading. For someone who has never used the product before, please understand that this product is an extremely opaque, one swipe color, liquid to matte finish. It does not transfer when completely fried. The product has avocado oil in it, unlike most if not all other liquid to matte products on the market. The avocado oil is a hydrating ingredient that completely balances the drying finish and will keep your lips hydrated throughout the day. When you take the product off, your lips do not feel dry.because I overdraw, I have found with this product it does not feather when I sweat. Meaning, it doesn't move around on my skin or sink into the lines of my skin when I'm working and sweating. It minimally breaks up inside the mouth (but only because I tend to chew on that part anyway). When layering the product to touch up after eating oily food, the products texture does not change and still feels great!

The colors can be a little tricky to maneuver around. If your unlucky enough to order online some shades might not look exactly the same in person. It's best to try to get swatches in your local Sephora if you can. I was drawn to the shade polished purple it just looked so nice maybe it be worth a shot. For $14 each it's still a bit pricey for just a lip stain and this was more of an impulse buy. I wasn't very fond of the smell of the lipstain and while it looked nice in the packaging it just didn't do anything for me. My lips felt dry and I usually use a lip scrub and prep my lips before hand. I'm sad to say this lip stain has almost no lasting power and is quite difficult to get even. I do love that they have over 90 shades but I just want a formula that lasts at least 5 hours of my day.

Review for: 01 Always Red more...
Let me be the millionth person to tell you that you NEED this lip cream in your life. If I could give this product 100 stars, I would. This is my holy grail red lip. The sephora collection cream lip stains will stay on your lips for an entire day and, believe me when I say this, not budge. Not one little bit. I have woken up from a night out with this lipstick still painted perfectly on my lips. 

I will say that on me, personally, they are the tiniest bit drying. However, that is not enough to stop me from buying this again and again. The amount of girls AND guys who comment on the color is absurd. I have told many a random girl in a bathroom where my lip cream is from. I will attach some photos of the product on. 

If you're thinking of buying this, just do it already. You will not be disappointed.

Review for: 01 Always Red more...
I wouldn't really call it a "stain" but I love this formula for cream matte liquid lipstick. It goes on smooth, it's comfortable, it doesn't cake, crack, or flake off, it lasts a long time and I think it's a bit less drying even then my other favorites, Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick . I don't think my lips "wither" as much with this formula. I only have the color 01 Always Red, it is a classic deep true red and I get compliments every single time I wear it. It's very bold but super flattering with my skintone (I feel like it would be on most skintones).

I enjoy this product to really amp up my looks. I have two of the shades but I have heard that the shades can be hit and miss. I have noticed that ij just the two that I have. The darker shade I have, 24 Burnt Sienna, is a little streaky until you build it whereas the lighter shade I own, 13 Marvalous Mauve, is less so. They both stay on your lips for a long time. The doe foot applicator makes it easy to get crisp lines. They do dry down matte and can be a little drying. I would reccomend this if you enjoy lip sticks but want something with more staying power.

Best stuff I have ever used!! I have always struggled with horrible acne, rosacea, scarring, and an uneven skin tone my whole life. I tried everything from drug store products all the way up to $300 prescriptions for acne and nothing worked for me until one of my coworkers introduced me to this! I use a dime size portion to cover my whole face at night and about 4-5 drops to cover my whole face during the day. (I use less during the day because it leaves a little bit of a tint to your skin and I don't want to look oily all day) I also put a moisturizer over the top of it at night. Within 2-3 days I noticed a HUGE difference!

this cream lip stain is the best of both worlds. It has the staying
power of a stain with the pigmentation of a liquid lipstick. I have
tried higher end stains/ liquid lipsticks and wasn't totally satisfied. I
always felt like the stains didn't have enough pigment, so I would have
to layer it on. But with liquid lipsticks they would stay on pretty
well and had enough pigment but would dry out my lips so bad. This cream
stain from sephora is the best, I'm totally satisfied. It is honestly
so light I barely feel it, it stays on all day..for real, and the
pigmentation is great. Most important it does not dry out my lips AT

Can someone let me know if this lipstick flakes at all? That's a big no no for me on liquid lipsticks and a girl's gotta know before buying! Thank you! :)
