I need a great lipstain; I know there are great brands out there, but I just can't find the right shade! I am looking for a dark one, to mimic wine stained lips-- not too orange, not fuchsia, and no purple teeth! I'm so overwhelmed when I look online. Can you help me find a some shades to choose from so I don't keep buying them and never using them? I have fair skin, blue eyes, and am blonde (for the moment). Cheap is great, but if the lipstain is awesome I can go into the higher-end price zone. Thanks in advance! :) Kellie"
Dearest Kellie! Carlota here. I'm a fair blue-eyed blonde as well that LOVES lip stains so I can definitely help you. I wear lip stain almost every day. My personal favorite is Benetint from Benefit Cosmetics. It gives a great "was sipping Pinot Noir all night" look. I've only picked 4 for you to try because these are truly the best....and I'm a self-professed beauty junkie. Hope this helps and you find one that looks fab on your smackers! xoxo
