When it comes to lips, I'm the queen of "chapstick". My lips have never been one of my favorite features, I definitely inherited my family's thin German lips, and thanks to my older brother, who very much enjoyed picking on his younger sister, I also gained a battle scar running down where my lower lip meets my chin. For years I just gave up the fight of even attempting to fall in love with my puckers, until one of my long-time friends encouraged me to check out Younique's Stiff Upper Lip Stain. Though I don't use a ton of Younique products, I have used their Moonstruck Fiberlashes and became a huge fan (you can check out that review HERE)! I figured with these lips, what have I got to lose? My awesome Younique rep, Jacki O. sent me my own tube of Younique's Stiff Upper Lip Stain, at no cost to facilitate this review, and my lips quickly rose from a scale of "No Stars" to "ROCK STARS!"
Who knew something so small could pack so much power - lip power that is! Younique's Stiff Upper Lip lip stain is designed to keep full color on your lips, all day long, through kisses, applications of "chapstick", and sip after sip of coffee. Most lipsticks and glosses have to be applied as the day goes on, but Younique proves once again, with the lasting color power of their lip stain, why their brand is one of the most used and talked about in the world of makeup!
Younique's Stiff Upper Lip lip stain comes in seven different colors to fit all types of skin tones, personalities, and looks. Each bottle is filled with 4oz of liquid lip power, complete with easy to use wand and soft applicator tip. Check out all of the color options you will find in this lip stain collection:
When my bottle arrived I was totally surprised by the watery consistency of the lip stain. I found myself thinking, "This couldn't possibly live up to all it promises to be?" After a quick email to my rep, who assured me, this is exactly what the consistency looks like", I took my time to apply my first coat of lip stain to my lips. Jacki O. was also a great help with tips in how to help my lips looking their best when using this product. At her advice, I applied a simple sugar rub (literally just sugar crystals and water) over my lips to exfoliate them and remove any dead skin before I applied the stain.
Behold my lips! The first picture is my lips in all their natural glory, followed by a picture with one application of the Sultry lip stain and the last, a 2nd coat of lip stain. As with most Younique products, I love that this lip stain even allows me to choose how bold I want to go. One application for light coverage, two or more for a stronger lip statement. It's important to allow the stain to dry for a minute or two between applications. After the final coat, allow a minute or two of dry time for the stain to perfectly set. What's my favorite thing about the Stiff Upper Lip? I can still use my "chapstick" time and time again, all day long, and still maintain the awesome color of my lips! What's my husband's favorite thing about the Stiff Upper Lip? I don't leave any color behind in my kisses (and I love that I can sneak sips of his coffee and no longer get caught)!
Eat your heart out Taylor Swift! I'm not afraid to show off my lips anymore! Younique's Stiff Upper Lip gives me boldness from the inside out and I'm thrilled to have a great personal rep. like Jacki O. who isn't just about selling products, but about helping her clients look and feel great!
