It is a berry wine colour. It starts out very sheer but you can build it till it looks like your lips are stained by a blackberry merlot. On the colour spectrum is much more a purple-based shade than a reddish or pink hue.

It depends on how much you use. It you just add a little dab, then rub it in and your color is on the reddish end. If you add more stain, then it's more of a wine - raspberry instead of red.

This product will give you that perfect "just been eating berries" stain to your lips. The more you apply, the more intense the color. Amazingly smooth, and not sticky when it dries. Does't feel dry or dried out either. I would highly reccomend this product.

I think the color of this stain is more of a purple-berry and less of a red-berry (i.e. more of a wine color than a raspberry color). If you're looking for something more reddish, for the lips I'd recommend Benetint balm (the one that comes in a little pot), or the Tarte stains that come in little push-up tubes for the cheeks. Both this stain and Benetint only come in one color, but Tarte and Vincent Longo make a variety of tones/colors, and some of the "stain" lipglosses from Stila might work, too!

It is really a wine color, not on the red-berry edge of it, more of a bruise purple. I would recommend using one of the longwearing formula Sephora lipsticks and blotting it mostly off/reapplying/rinse-wash-repeating until you build the stain you want from a berry-reddish lipstick. Maniac Mat Long-Wearing Matte Lipstick has a really nice berry/rose/red you might want to try!

Question
How would lip stain look on two-toned lips?
I am African American and my top lip is darker than my bottom lip. Has anyone ever tried lip stain on two toned lips? Lipstick in appropriate colors is usually very hard for me to find so I usually use dark berry lip glosses. I've never tried a stain before.

My lips are the same: pink on the bottom and dark brown on top. Darker than the rest of my skin. Most stains can be 'built' by applying layers of color. I put a coat or two extra on my top lip than the bottom, depending on how deep I want the color to be. Not so much to 'even' out my lip color but to get the color to show on my top lip. It looks just that: not natural (bc my lips are two toned) but colored and pretty.

I think this would be perfect for your lips! The beauty about this stain is that it only enhancs the color your lips have naturally. The more you layer it on the more intese the color becomes. I have used this on myself (medium skin tone) and it looks just as beautiful on me as it does for my sister in law who's got more of that pale fair skin tone. I think the best thing to do, though, is go to the store and try it. I was a little unsure about a stain until I did that too. I love the natural look it gives me with just one swipe on my upper and bottom lip and I often use it for my cheeks when I want more of a natural blushed look on my cheeks. The more swipes or layers of this color you add, the more intense the color...so I use it a lot as the base for my red lip looks since this helps the look last all day, even if the lipstick doesn't. Good luck...I hope you try this product because I think you'll love it!

I have a similar problem in reverse. My lower lip is a more "normal" color and my upper lip is very pale. I usually apply a coat to the upper lip first and let it set for a minute, then apply a coat to both lips. I focus more on getting the upper lip to match the lower than coating both lips equally. You might also try a base pencil in a neutral shade to even your lip color out somewhat before applying the stain. I found a Sephora brand one that was inexpensive and works well. Good luck!

I'm not sure how a lip stain would work for two toned lips, however from my experience with this product, each time I apply it (I usually apply two or three layers of stain) it darkens with each layer, it's worth a try.

i have a friend who is african american and she too has two-toned lips. i tried the Lush Flush Lip & Cheek Stain on her and it looked very natural and covered the different tones.

I would try putting the stain first on the lighter of the two lips in two layers then add only one layer to the darker lip. I would gradually reapply to both lips until both lips have the desired and equal color.

Totally different animals, this one is about the consistency of hair gel, and stains with no shine or moisture, but it stains pretty well. The sugar balms are more like lipstick, color in a oil base. you get shine and conditioning, but the color fads as quickly as lip balm. Depends on what your looking for.

I have both this stain and the Fresh Sugar in Plum. Honestly the Fresh Sugar is worth the price. Your lips won't feel dried out and the color is buildable. You can make it very sheer or very bold just by adding layers. Both of my older sisters, my mother, my daughter and I tried this in Plum. The shade looked good on all five of us and our complexions are different shades.

The Sephora Stain and the Fresh Sugar Balm are two different types of products. The Stain adds longer lasting color and I generally wear it with a gloss. The Fresh Sugar Balm is more of a protected and balm for your lips that has color. Both are great products but for different issues.

This is by no means a lip treatment, if you are looking for one, I recommend spending a bit more money and buying the fresh balms or if your budget is really tight, get the rose bud salve. It is only 6 bucks. I own this is in Pinot and Red wine and use them a LOT. Because this is a gel, wait until the first coat dries out(5-6 seconds) and then reapply to make it as dark as you want.

Question
how does the 'red wine' color compare to stila pomegranate crush?
i'm looking for a less-expensive dupe for stila pomegranate crush -- seeking that same cool purple/berry color that's not too red or pink or brown. i have light skin with both warm and cool undertones (although leaning more warm), and my HG blush is a layer of pomegranate crush with a layer of tarte cheek stain in tipsy over it -- so i'm looking something that's going to put a very cool, purple/blue base under there to work with the warmth of tipsy to mimic all of my undertones. a stick of tispy will last me forever so i don't mind the cost, but the stila crushes are not enough product for me to justify the money.

I think it is most like Tarte's "Flush" color. It is cool tone (blue based), no brown, and not too pink or too red - just right!
I'm light to med cool (pink undertones), but I can also wear many warm shades like peachy-pinks.
Unfortunately I haven't tried the Stila Pomegranate so I can't make that comparison, but I do think this is what you're looking for.

I recently bought the merlot color (it was the only one they had left at the Sephora I went to) and I LOVE it. It's actually better than Benetint, which is what I was using before. The color is exactly the same as Benetint but since it's a gel I find it's easier to use. The color lasts all day and looks incredibly natural and there's no sticky feeling, which I was worried about. I don't use it on my lips, so I can't speak for that, but I highly recommend for use on your cheeks.
