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.

Step 1

Dampen a cotton ball with liquid eye-makeup remover. Blot your lips with the cotton to lift the stain off your lips.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Smooth and moisturize your lips with a final swipe of lip balm or a few dots of petroleum jelly.
