Aspire/Acquire - Lip Stain: Vincent Longo Gel Stain vs. CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain

Welcome to Aspire/Acquire, a new feature aimed at guiding you through the treacherous world of price intelligence. Are $500 shoes a better investment than $15 ones? Can a drugstore moisturizer beat out $130-an-ounce Crème de la Mer?

Today’s product: lip stain. Not quite a lipstick, not quite a gloss, not quite a pencil. These tints often do double duty as lip and cheek colors, so can be viewed as a justifiable expense, but even so… Is designer worth it? Vincent Longo Original Lip & Cheek Gel Stain hits your wallet up for $22.50 and comes in 7 shades – we like Angel’s Touch, a plummy pink. It blends well and lasts long, so is recommended for special events like weddings. On the more budget-friendly end of the spectrum, CoverGirl's Outlast Lip Stain in Plum Pout is 1/3 of the price, at just $7.50, and their Plum Pout is a close match to Angel’s Touch. It’s got conditioners to soften your lips, and contains water-based colorants that won’t smudge or transfer.
