NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Review and Swatches

Hello! This post is about the NYC Smootch Proof 16H Lip Stains. These are my absolute favorite lip stains currently on the market! They literally last all day unless you lick your lips frequently, which if thats the case, they will only fade to a less intense saturation of color (I know this to be true because when I am riding horses I tend to lip my lips quite often for some reason). While I would not say this is a moisturizing product, they do not dry out even the most severely chapped lips. I have tried the Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balms and the Covergirl Outlast Lipstains and they do not last nearly as long and dry out my lips terribly. They also tend to bleed out ; while the NYC Lip Stains do not. (PICTURES AND SWATCHES BELOW)

They have a standard lip stain applicator, which resembles a Crayola Marker, and a slight sweet lemon scent. The colors of the actual stain itself tend to always be a couple shades darker than the tube color. That is to be expected with stains because deeper colors are much easier to make stay than lighter shades. Although the color selection is decent to good, I wish they would expand the line considerably; just because I like them so much! Lastly, they last an average amount of time for a lip stain, which is anywhere from a few weeks to up to three months before drying out. Fortunately they are at a price point to where it is not a great expense to replace them after its lifespan has ended. You can get them at :
