The best lip stains that will not budge throughout your Chinese New Year feasting
If there is anything us beauty devotees can collectively concur with, it is that grease is our worst adversary. From raccoon dark circles (the remnants of your valiant attempt at a smoky eye) to cakey, creased foundation, it is responsible for many a makeup disaster.
The sentiment is, indubitably, held by a majority of lipstick buffs. There is nothing that cuts through highly pigmented formulas quite as effectually, leaving behind smears and smudges that will leave you a spitting image of Ronald McDonald. Turns out, chowing down on buttery pineapple tarts, gleaming slices of bak kwa, and an oily tangle of yusheng this Chinese New Year threatens your visage as much as it puts your figure on the line.
Being armed with the right lipstick formula can, however, make a world (ok fine, a week) of difference. And when it comes to staying power, one can't go wrong with a trusty lip stain. A low-maintenance, budge-proof option that adds a nice pop of colour to lips, we round up those that do exactly what they say on the tin: stain your pout with variations in opacity, finish and texture. Touch-ups probably not required until after lunch.
