Silk Naturals (www.silknaturals.com), one of my favourite Indie Mineral Makeup Companies, recently released 4 lip stains. Having last tried a lip stain probably a decade ago, I couldn’t resist grabbing one in my latest haul. At US$4.50, what was there not to grab? 🙂

Silk Naturals on Dixie Lip Stain which is listed as a Peach Lip Stain:
Dixie is a warm red lip stain. One coat is a pretty peach- more coats deepen the color to a brick red. Great for warmer skin tones, and wonderful for layering.
Ingredients: Water, Sorbitol, Sodium Carbomer, Gluconoactone, and Sodium Benzoate, FD&C color
These come packaged in 3.5 ml wands with doe-foot applicators.
Vegan & Gluten Free
Unscented, this is pretty easy to use with the doe foot applicator, although some of it gets onto the rest of the wand above the flocked sponge. It’s not an issue for me but several ladies on the forum have mentioned that. I like it sheered out with my finger tip. I dot a few light blobs in the middle of my lips and use my pinkie to rub it evenly onto my upper and lower lips. It goes on very sheer and reddens after a couple of minutes. Please refrain from licking your lips while the coat is drying – it is slightly bitter tasting.
It’s very watery which doesn’t dry up straight away. I like that, since you can take a bit of time to even it out nicely.
This is how it looks with 1 very sheer shade. The photo was taken AFTER dinner and an ice cream, so a bit of it did come off. But still decent considering just a couple of dots were spread around on my lips.
