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.
