These moisture stains claim to give the shine of a gloss, moisture of a balm, longevity of a stain, and give the pigmentation of a lipstick. They are really claiming to be the all in one perfect lip product. I was instantly intrigued by these products and couldn't wait to try them out. Keep reading to see of they were a hit or miss for me.
First of all I adore the packaging. The sleek black packaging with see through body just look high end, and I love keeping them out on my vanity. I also really enjoy the brush shape. It picks up the perfect amount of product and the pointed tip helps fill in the lips without going out of the lines. The brush reminds me of the YSL Glossy Stains.
The colour of these stains are gorgeous, and all leave a light stain that lasts about 4 ish hours. The only colour I didn't love was London Posh because it is just a bit too neutral for my skin tone.
Now onto what I didn't like about these stains...the texture. These are marketed as a hybrid product and they have this weird hybrid consistency as well. They are thick, kind of mousse-y, kinda like a melted lip balm, etc. They are like no other product I've ever tried.

Julie from Swatch & Review let me in on the secret of these moisture stains and I am so glad that she did. You can't apply them like a normal gloss. To apply properly you have to take time pushing and smoothing them over the lips until your body heat melts them into a smooth, opaque finish.
