Hallelujah, spring is finally here: Who wants to waste a minute of it checking out lipstick? This is the time to focus on the important things in life, like strappy sandals and smoochfests in the park. Nothing against long-lasting lipsticks, but let's face it: After a few hours, they all seem to dry up or feather. That's why we've always wondered about lip stain. Does it provide a flattering flush, or does it fall flat? Does it stay in place as its name would imply? Or maybe it does its job so well that it's hard to wash off at the end of the day (or when you want to change shades). We were on a mission to find out! So here's the long and short of it, courtesy of our tint-happy testers.
