    Perfect product to give color to your lips

    This product is great for giving colour to your lips. I don't wear makeup everyday so my lips tend to look washed out but this just gives my lips enough colour to make me look youthful and feminine. Its also really soft, moisturizing and smells really good.

    Mom liked this

    My mom normally doesnt use lip products (other than the odd chapstick) and was apprehensive to try this. She was surprised when she actually liked it. She liked the colour and the way it felt on her lips.

    I am in LOVE with this gorgeous lip stain!

    I am seriously in LOVE with this product. I don't think I have tried anything from Clarins before but considering how great this is, I am going to have to investigate their full line of products. I am going to quote from the promotional material here because it says it all:

    "A formula rich in active plant ingredients and an ultra-sensory lip tint delivers customizable and long-wearing colour, for a kiss-proof matte finish and a barely-there feel"

    Cue 100 emoji. Seriously. Everything it says there is 100% accurate. It certainly is "ultra-sensory" - it smells and tastes like a jolly rancher. It is customizable in the sense that you can layer the product to create a richer deeper colour (more on this in a moment). It is long wearing, no doubt about this (again more on this later) and finally, barely there is an understatement. I have never - EVER - worn a lip product that I forgot I was wearing. This lip stain truly feels like having NOTHING on your lips. Even if the rest of the claims weren't true (which I assure you, they are), it would be worth it for me just based on this.

    The texture of the lip stain is just slightly thicker than water. The one and only thing I don't love about it is the brush. It is like a nail polish bottle with a nail polish brush and I found this a little bit tricky for application. It is slightly forgiving in that if you go "out of the lines" you can quickly wipe it away before it dries (or I used a micellar water on a q-tip after it dried) but I would rather have a brush that allows for more precision so I don't have to worry about this in the first place.

    One coat gives you the kind of look that feels like perfectly blotted lipstick, but it stays looking like that for hours. The colour I got is "Violet Water" and it is a great berry colour on my olive/neutral skin tone. Think grape popsicle here. With more than one coat you can build the colour up so that it looks like a deeper, richer, more opaque stain while still being matte.

    If you have ever tried LipSense products you will have a feel for what I mean here. I found that if you allowed each layer to dry before applying the next, the colour payoff lasted longer. Also, the first time I applied it I did so to only my bottom lip and pressed my lips together. This worked and gave me a nice mild tint, but I found that when I applied a layer to each lip separately and allowed it to dry before pressing my lips together, again the colour payoff lasted longer.

    I wanted to see how long the product would last without having to reapply and my best estimate is around four hours. I found that eating does diminish the colour ever so slightly (especially greasy foods) and talking a lot does as well. I applied lip balm and gloss over it a couple of times and was pleasantly surprised to find that this actually extended the wear instead of breaking the colour down.

    I am over the moon about this product and not only want to repurchase it but want to look for the other colours as well. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend. Any lip colour lover will love this product!

    Patchy Problems

    The smell of this lip stain is AMAZING! It reminds me so much of the Mott's Strawberry Daiquiri Cocktail Mix I got to try out last summer from Chick Advisor. The colour I chose is 04 Violet Water, which is a really pretty deep pink colour when applied to my lips. I like that it felt like I wasn’t wearing any product but I had a hard time trying to make it not look patchy. I think it could be because my lips were dry at the time of application, but I'll definitely be trying this one again.

    Pucker Up!

    I received the Clarins Water Stain in Rose. Right from the start, I was thinking this was definitely due to the influence of Korean Makeup trends of the slightly bite lip look.

    The lip stain is definitely a little more concentrated, so use it sparingly. The taste of the lip stain (because who isn't going to lick their lips?) it actually a pleasing taste!

    I should've gotten the Red lip stain because I am more of a Red Lip girl than Rose, but it is a nice pink for those who like rosy lips. It does not leave a mark if you do any up touching anything with your lips, which makes it a pretty good stain.

    Surprisingly worked well for me

    This product was apart of the goodie bag received from the Chick advisor event. I was excited to try this because of the long wearing aspect. I wore this to dinner and it actually did a decent job of staying on for me! The part that kills me is the colours. Maybe i'll look into what other colours they may have available because I'm intrigued, however am a picky person when it comes to lipsticks/stains. This was comfy and lasted... not too bad!!

    Lightweight with medium power

    This is a very light formula that I find quite opaque. It doesn't add any moisture to the lips but gives a nice light stain; very much like if you had just eaten a popsicle. I found it to be transfer proof, which was nice, and it lasted for a few hours.

    I got the shade "Rose Water", which I found to be too bright pink for my liking, but I think if I found the right shade, something a little more subtle, I would have preferred this product much more.

    Long lasting

    Now here's the thing, I'm not usually a fan of lip stains as they don't end up looking great on me. However, I really enjoyed this one. As long as you have the patience to apply it, it looks quite nice. A little definitely goes a long way. No major scent and it is not flavoured. I used my ring finger to blend out the product some more. Be aware as it's a stain, it naturally stains your finger tips. It's so incredibly light weight. But because it's water based, I did find my lips felt a little dry and pulled later on.
    Ultimately, it hasn't really changed my mine about lip stains, I'm just a lipstick kind of gal. But for those who like long wearing lip stains, definitely worth a try.

    Popsicle lips.Applicator not great.

    I received the Clarins water lip stain for free from Chickadvisor event goodie bag in the colour rose water. I love the colour but the applicater of the lip stain is like a soft bristle brush which is not suitable to apply the product as it holds too much product and its difficult to line the lips.
    As it is a stain its a long lasting lip wear and hard to take off.
    Overall i realized lip stains are not my this.

    Lasting stain

    Super light weight lip stain. I have the Rose shade which is nice pink colour, it’s not overly bright which is exactly what I was looking for. It lasts a long time, needs minimal touch ups! Its wears best when your lips aren’t dry. Perfect for someone who isn’t fussy about makeup and wants to keeps things simple. I own several Korean Lip tints and I love this!

    I received this during the Chickadvisor cinq du sept event.
