LIP STAIN 2 cb6a6 71991

When I learned that a young Dolly Parton used pokeberries as lipstick, I thought it might be like my own childhood beauty trick for lip stain: popsicles. Wonderskin’s Wonder Blading Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit ($32, has the same effect and comes in over 10 shades. Apply the purple-tinted masque (which makes you look like the opera singer from The Fifth Element), leave it on for 10 to 45 seconds (the longer the more pigmented), then spray the activator to transform it into a peel. The result is a transfer-proof lip stain that young Dolly (and young me) would approve of.-Marie Lodi
