When it comes to beauty products that take the effort out of looking like you've put any effort in, I'm all ears. Lazy girl beauty? They're talking to me. So, when I spotted Wonderskin's Wonderblading Lip Stain creating a buzz on TikTok, which promises long-lasting lip colour in just a few swipes, I was intrigued. A healthy rouge with no top-ups is definitely something I can get on board with.

The viral product comes in 16 shades and counts Hailey Bieber, Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, Olivia Wilde and Doja Cat as fans. You'll definitely have seen the videos - the lip stain is purple upon application, but when wiped off, transforms your lips to whichever shade you've selected. Fade-proof and transfer-proof, is it worth the hype, or just another flash in the TikTok pan?

Wonderskin Lip Stain review

I was sent the product in three shades, but the one that immediately stood out to me was Crush - a gorgeous coral pink that would give me the natural look I was searching for to wear every day. The application process was seamless, and once I'd wiped off the stain with a damp tissue, I was seriously impressed. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

How long does Wonderskin's lip stain last?

I'm delighted to report that not only did the tint not budge all day, but after applying at 4pm in the afternoon, washing my face in the evening AND showering in the morning, it was still going strong at 2pm the next day, when a colleague asked me what lipstick I was wearing. That is some serious staying power.

What did I love?

How fast the results are: The application takes between ten and 30 seconds to work, which is pretty magical. Perfect for those on the go.

The range of shades: You'd be hard-pressed to find a shade that doesn't suit you, and with a swipe of your favourite lip gloss, you can create a range of looks. Plus, the more you apply/the longer you leave it, the more intense your colour will be.

How it feels: Some lip tints and lip stains dry out your lips, but there's no such issue with Wonderskin's lip stain. It doesn't feel like you're wearing anything at all and lips stay soft and supple/

Triple your money: Not only can you use the lip stain as a lip liner, but you can also dab it on your cheeks for long-lasting blush.

No nasties: The vegan-friendly product is waterproof, transfer-proof and alcohol-free, so it does as good as it looks.

Easy to remove: Finished with your colour? it's waterproof, so you'll need to use an oil-based cleanser to remove it.

What could be improved?

If I had to select something (and it's not easy), the applicator could be a tiny bit smaller or more brush-like to allow you to get a really detailed application. However, it would be just as easy to grab your favourite brush and use that instead. Problem solved. As it is, it's easy to use and applies the right amount of product each time.


Wonderskin's Wonderblading Lip Stain is a game-changing product that lives up to all of its promises and then some. I can't wait to try out the rest of the shades in the range. This one's definitely worth the hype!
