FotD: A Foray into Lip Stain!

I was in Boots the other day and on a whim I picked up 17 Berry Crush Lip Stain and decided to give it a whirl. I'm totally out of love with lipstick at the moment because even with a lip pencil nothing stays on my lips or it ends up bleeding out. I thought a lip stain would solve all my problems, so I bought the 'Smoking Hot' version and tested it out!
 I have to say I wasn't that impressed. I like the idea of a lip stain but maybe I just bought a shitty product? When I was using the pen it felt like a felt tip that was running out, it didn't apply evenly and sometimes didn't come out at all! The only thing I could think of that was going wrong was that gravity wasn't allowing the 'ink' to come out since I was holding it upsidedown. Also, this stain comes with a lip balm on the other end. I used the lip balm about 15 minutes before applying the stain so maybe using it and putting the stain on top affected its performance? I will have to try it again without. The good news though is that the colour is very nice (here I have put just a plain red lipstick over the top with is why it's also a little glossy) and it stays on for FLIPPIN AGES. I went out to pub quiz, brushed my teeth and used a make up wipe at my lips were still stained slightly the next day. Very impressive! I would definitely buy a lip stain again but I think I would find another brand to try.
I've also added to my sunglasses collection (I think I have about twenty pairs now!) with these amazing ones from Primark. I just wish I had an excuse to wear them now! COME OUT SUN.
