Speaking of brown lip stains, my favorite lip stain for spring and summer is Stila’s Coconut Crush. Frankly, I’m a little surprised there hasn’t been more talk about this.
I’ve told you before that I LOVE me some lip stains. I have a drawer in my stash that is dedicated to them, I’m that serious about them. But if you looked through my drawer, you would only a few brown stains. Few brands have made them and it’s a shame because they lend themselves perfectly towards a long wearing neutral lip. My favorite brown stain of all time was Urban Decay’s Ink in Naked. I stocked up on that shade when they were getting ready to discontinue it but I’ve always had room in my heart for more brown stains.
I have been loving this new Coconut Stain because it’s brown and because it’s done in a different way than its stain predecessors. Stila added in a touch of pink and some shimmer to this stain so it comes out as a bronzed rose. Can you see the shimmer below?
Here I swatches Coconut Crush against all of the Stila stains except Acai… I mysteriously misplaced it otherwise it would have been included. Now I know that a brown stain is not flattering on everyone, I had this discussion with a friend awhile back, but it’s not all about the lips with this stain. This stain is insanely pretty on the cheeks as well, especially when you catch a hint of the shimmer in the sun.
I have a feeling I will live in this stain this summer when I get my faux tan on…
