It's a stain alright, unfortunately it does most of the staining everywhere but your lips.

Oh how I wanted to love this lip stain. Birchbox had introduced me to my all time favorite lip color by this same Aussie manufacturer over a year ago, Mirenesse's Glossy Kiss (Amazing, seriously, add one to your cart, rightnow), and I've been looking forward to trying other items from their line. I ordered the Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain in #2, a similar cool blue red to the Glossy Kiss I already loved, and while the color IS nice, the fact that it is so highly pigmented means it ends up EVERYWHERE. It seemed to be missing the "staining" feature, but the "smearing" feature was there in full! The sponge wand applicator doesn't do you much good, but even when using my own tools and prepping with translucent powder and concealer around my lips to keep the lacquer in place, nothing helped. I had beautiful, cool blue toned red all over my hand towels, my clothes, my face... I'm tempted to say this product was A bomb (Sorry, I had to).
