MUA (MakeUp Academy) Kiss Proof Lip Stain - Fabulicious, Fruitilicious, Kissalicious - Review + Lip Swatches

Hi my gorgeous fashionistas!

I've been curious about lip stains for so long since the first time I heard about them. I'm definitely a lip product type of girl, I love anything that I can put on my lips, especially lipsticks. I've decided to try MUA (MakeUp Academy) Kiss Proof Lip Stain since it look really interesting. I've always wanted a lip product that stays on your lips even after you drink a couple of water or eat a couple of meals, so having the "kiss proof" feature of the lip stain caught my attention straight away. I purchased all three shades that they offer, I do hope they make more shades in the future because I really enjoyed using the lip stains for the past months.

MUA Kiss Proof Lip Stain is actually the first ever lip stain that I've tried and I'm totally hooked. I've been looking for other lip stain to try because I love the natural tint it gives the lips, and it stays longer than a lipstick or lipgloss. I know there are other drug-store lip stain in the market right now but I've heard alot of bad reviews about them so I decided to just stick with my MUA Kiss Proof Lip Stain. I really think it's a good quality lip stain and it does the job it's supposed to do! :)

"At last colour that stays with MUA’s Kiss Proof Lip Stain, the answer to the problem of 'bleeding' lipstick and lipstick that disappears all day long.

Kiss proof has a hydrating and waterproof formula which does not dry out your lips and is enriched with moisturising panthenol. Kiss proof is a felt tipped pen for easy application to create a perfect line and Kiss Proof Lip Stain comes in three natural tones that can be used alone or mixed to create a unique shade for your favourite colour. You can also use the stain as a base for your usual MUA lipstick or alone for a sheer lip enhancing colour or with Intense Kiss lip gloss." (source:

MUA Kiss Proof Lip Stain is only £3.00 each!

This is the lightest shade out of the three lip stains. It has a peach and pink under tone.

This is the darkest lip stain out of all the three. It has a vivid deep red shade with a plum undertone. I really enjoy using this lip stain because it's the most pigmented out of all and you can really see the rich colour on the lips. It's like wearing a lipstick but a more natural and longer wear.


MUA Kiss Proof Lip Stain in Kissalicious swatches

This lip stain has purple undertone, you can see that the colour is not exactly pink or red. I quite favour this colour compare to the others because it really gives a natural tint on the lips. It's not like the red shade where you can obviously see that you're wearing something on your lips. Also, it's not like a light pink shade that's not really noticeable if you have a pigmented lips like  mine.

APPLICATION: 4/5 -- The application is very easy because the lip stain tube is like a pen with a very strong tip that's big enough to apply on the lips with alot of control. One swipe on the lips is very opaque already, apart from Fabulicious since it's a very light colour, you need to apply a couple of layers to see a tint especially if you have pigmented lips like mine. Other than that, it's pretty easy to apply the lip stain and I really adore the application tip, it's so easy to use and control.

TEXTURE: 5/5 -- The texture is your normal lip stain, it's a tiny bit wet at first and it's going to dry out when it settled. It doesn't really accentuate dry patches as long as you cover the lips with a generous layer of lip stain; it looks like a natural tint. I really love the feeling of it, it's so cool when you first apply it and it smells amazing! The scent of the lip stain is my favourite part, it's like a fresh and sweet scent, it's really yummy!

PIGMENTATION: 5/5 -- The pigmentation is really amazing considering it's a lip stain. Keep in mind that it's a lip "STAIN", it's not supposed to give you a perfect opaque lipstick look, but there's still a vivid tint on the lips. MUA Kiss Proof Lip Stain has a very good colour pay-off, I'm so amazed by the quality considering the price is really affordable!

** Prevent drying out by storing the lip stain upside down ** I've tried it and it works! Some of my lip stains were abit dry before but I started storing them upside down couple of weeks ago and the pigmentation are back to normal like it's brand new again.

LONGEVITY: 5/5 -- One of the things I love about using a lip stain is that it stays longer on the lips compare to a lipstick or lipgloss. This particular lip stain lasts for 6-8 hours depending what you drink and eat of course. However, if you drink or eat a couple of times, you'll still have the lip stain on your lips. The longevity is amazing and it's a great lip product alternative from your usual lipstick or lip gloss, especially if you're aiming for a natural lip tint.

PACKAGING: 5/5 -- I absolutely adore the packaging! I was actually sold by the packaging when I first saw it. I'm definitely a sucker for packaging, although I consider the quality first of course. The packaging is so sleek and sturdy. I love how the colour of the lip stain is the colour of the tube, so convenient right?! I think it's really sleek and stylish, and I also adore the cute names of the lip stains! There's nothing about the packing that I don't like.

PRICE V.S. QUALITY: 5/5 -- The quality of the lip stain is definitely worth more than what I paid for. It's only £3.00, a very affordable price with so many great qualities! I highly recommend it if you're looking for a really good lip stain, you'll definitely love it!


The UPSIDE about the lip stain:
  • Very stylish and sturdy packaging
  • Smells amazing! Minty and sweet, it's really yummy!
  • Feels so hydrating on the lips with a cool sensation
  • Amazing colour pay-off
  • Gives a natural lip tint, can go from light to dark
  • The application tip is really easy to use and control
  • The lip stain last longer on the lips compare to other lip products
  • Very, very affordable! (£3.00 only at
  • The size is small enough to fit in any purse
  • Perfect for travel

The DOWNSIDE about the lip stain:
  • I have no complaints whatsoever, I really enjoyed using these lip stains. Definitely a great purchase!

Who would love this lip stain?
You'll love this if you're looking for a natural lip tint and if you just want a lip product that will last longer on your lips compare to a lipstick or lipgloss. Although, you might not like it you have very chapped lips, it's not ideal for people with chapped lips to use any lip stain.
