What is a lip stain? Lip stain is similar to a sheer lip gloss, but has more hue, and stays on from 4 to 14 hours. Some even plump the lips.
Just like any other products, some lip stains are better than others. We researched many brands and here are the best picks in order of popularity and reviews raves.

4. Tarte Rise & Shine Plumping Nectar-$21, this is a great “green” option. This Tarte stain is natural. It is also a dual product, and has gel-based lip tint which stays on all day and a lip enhancing gloss. The tint gives natural rosy glow that stays all day, while the lip-enhancing gloss gives the appearance of fuller lips, for a pout that’s pretty and polished. So even after gloss wears away the lip tint remains! Try in nectar.
