I'm a shopping expert and this long-lasting lip color is my fave — on sale for $6, today only

Sometimes, lipstick just doesn't cut it. No matter how long-wearing your favorite brand claims to be, it's still going to disappear after that cup of coffee or midway through a hot date. Staying power requires something serious: lip stain. This is the stuff that will not abandon you and leave you sneaking to re-apply halfway through a meal. I'm here to tell you I have found the best lip stain, and right now, for Presidents' Day, it's on sale at nearly 50% off. People, it's just $6! I must admit I'm not the only fan. This stuff has 15,000+ five-star reviews on Amazon! Read on, and learn of its many talents.

It's more than just a lip stain: It does double duty as a blush! And has just as much staying power on cheeks as on lips.

The Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint truly stays on all day — I can apply in the morning, and still look fresh at dinnertime. It actually looks as if I just touched it up before tucking in. That's because the color sinks between the fine lines on your lips to stain them with the shade instead of just covering the surface. So when the product does start wearing off, your lips still look just as they did when you first applied it. There's a reason it's Amazon's number-one best-selling lip stain, after all.

Unlike some other lipsticks, glosses and stains I've tried, it doesn't migrate throughout the day (no awful splotches on your chin) and doesn't feather around the edges or corners, so your lips still look plenty plump.

The weightless formula is easy to apply, too — it has an ultra-precise applicator that makes it tough to mess up. The finish is velvet-like, or a pretty soft matte. It's available in 24 shades, including a rainbow of bright reds, pinks and my favorite, my-lips-but-better nude shades.

It feels like virtually nothing on your lips — just take it from this shopper, who's one of thousands to give it a perfect 5-star rating:

"Bought this on a whim and I’m so glad I did, now I want all the colors," she shares. "Out of the tube I was worried it would be too dark, but it settles in more like a stain and with one blot it was the perfect amount of color. It somehow feels like I don’t have anything on my lips, but also like I have something very soft on my lips?"

Another added: "I don't have time to be reapplying my lipstick so I want something I can put on in the morning and go and not think about it. But most of the time long-lasting lip products feel weird on your lips or they start to flake off and look bad. NONE of that with this magical stuff! You literally feel like there is nothing on your lips...I am in LOVE."

If our devotion of love to Peripera Ink lip tint isn't enough to convince you to give it a try, take notice that it's also gone viral on TikTok: The #periperainkvelvet has more than 7.6 million views on the app.

An Amazon No. 1 Bestseller, this lip stain has a velvety feel, and looks as good dinnertime as it did when you put it on in the morning. Choose from 24 shades!
