Holler! I have Sangria on my lips! Not the boozy drink (though this is the closest I’ll get to it) but this lip stain from Smashbox. It’s not a brand new product but it’s new to me now that Smashbox is tearing things up all over Boots stores.
The Limitless Lip Stain & Colour Seal Balm (as the name gives it away) is a two-part product. One end looks like a permanent marker pen that you draw on your lips and fill in with the deep colour, and the other end is a lip balm to moisturise and seal it.
You don’t have to wear the two together and may decide the subtly coloured lip balm on its own would suffice though I prefer to wear just the lip stain as I love how intense the colour is and the finish it gives.
I was drawn to this like a moth to a bright light – it is bee-au-tee-fool. A rich red wine colour that doesn’t feather and looks profoundly hot. It’s not an everlasting lip stain, just the part about it staining your lips is accurate and it knocks the spots off other (and often cheaper) imitations.
Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain & Colour Seal Balm costs £18 and is available online at www.boots.com/en/Smashbox or at Smashbox Cosmetic counters in store.

This enabler approves. I am in awe of your lip painting skills, that is some immaculate application.
It’s the marker pen, Polly! I did nothing. You have remarkable persuasion skills. xx
I am dying to try smashbox but the nearest Boots stocking it is 75 miles away!
Red is the one colour of lippy I am scared to wear
75 miles! Any potential shopping trips coming up, Britny? I used to be afraid of red but I don’t know how I started…I know I didn’t ask at a make-up counter for help. Do you wear any similar bold colours? Might be a way of building up the courage to go for a red.
I have bright purple and tangerine illamasqua lipglosses but nothing really close to red. I have nightmares about the reds I tried in my 20’s
I think red lipsticks have come a long way since then!
