You know that sinking feeling you get when you pass by a mirror and realize that almost all of your lipstick has worn off, except for an unsightly ring around the outside? You won’t get that feeling with Pur Minerals Pout Pens.
A good lip stain doesn’t wear off…in fact, they can be difficult to remove even when you are trying! They can also be drying, so continual hydration over the stain is necessary. Pur Minerals recently sent two shades of their new stain/lip balm hybrid Pout Pens ($20) to test – Sangria and Mai Tai.
These are very handy because the stain really lasts and the opposite end is a hydrating balm that keeps lips soft and provides some slip. Sangria is a pretty purple/wine shade and Mai Tai is a bright pinky-peach.
The hydrating end has such a small amount of tint that I couldn’t get any good pics of swatches. They gives some shine and also have vitamin C to help fight free radicals. The marker end is very easy to apply as the sharp tip makes for great precision.
I really like these, especially for long days without mirrors! They come in two more shades, Cosmo (red) and Fuzzy Navel (peach). You can find these handy additions to the lip stain world at Ulta and PurMinerals.com. – Lisa
