Nothing says sexy like a swipe of lip color on your pout. If you're looking for a product that features all-day hold – whether it be for your wedding day, a special event or an early-bird meeting -- a glam and gorgeous lip stain glides on smoothly and deposits a richly hued color on your lips. The heavy pigments found in lip stains are perfectly kissable and enduring, but often difficult to remove with only a facial tissue. When you are ready to swipe a new color onto your lips -- or you just want to give your pucker a breather -- you can remove the lip stain easily using a few basic beauty products.
Dampen a cotton ball with liquid eye-makeup remover. Blot your lips with the cotton to lift the stain off your lips.
Smooth a pea-sized amount of petroleum jelly onto your lips to soak up the remaining lip color. Allow the product to stay on your pout for two to three minutes.
Run a small towel under a stream of warm water. Rub your lips with the wet washcloth to remove the petroleum jelly and the lip color. Use small circular motions to clean your lips gently.
Smooth and moisturize your lips with a final swipe of lip balm or a few dots of petroleum jelly.
