Saw this really cool lip trick!
KOOL-AID Lip stain!
It really does work and last. Here’s how:

STEP ONE: Pick your flavor using this guide (or mix a couple to find your perfect hue):

Cherry = orange red
Tropical Punch = bright red
Peach Mango = peach
Pink Lemonade = Barbie pink
Strawberry Kiwi = light red
Grape = purple
You can pour it into a little bowl but can also use the packet as your container!

STEP TWO: Dampen your finger (the lovely model Carissa licked hers but I don’t want to sound unprofessional, lol!). Press your finger in the powder to pick up one coat.

STEP THREE: Rub your finger all over your lips. Try not to eat it immediately; it is sooo hard because it’s so good!

STEP FOUR: Dampen a Q-tip to go back over it and smooth out any clumps or uneven edges.
