Lipstick is great but sometimes you want something more daytime friendly. Instead of a more bold lip shade, go au naturale glam with a lip stain. Lip stains still pack a punch of color without the fuller matte finish. If you're looking for your perfect brand, you've got a ton of options. Lip stains are super trendy and every major makeup line carries them. So which ones work best? Lucky for you, there are a bevy of brands out there that'll leave you looking like you just ate a popsicle, but in a totally chic way.
