Stains are great for long-wearing color. Use the brush that comes with the product or your own lip brush and apply the stain to the natural contours of your lips. Then slick a gloss on over it for a hint of shine. Stains can also be used for the face -- but they're tricky. They dry quickly and can't be wiped off or blended easily. To use a stain as blush, apply moisturizer first -- the lotion will give it some slip and help you blend it. Be ready with a sponge to blend quickly.
