Vincent Longo's Italian-based research and development team created Pearlessence Gel Stains to be sip-resistant, swim-resistant and sweat-resistant. Gel Stains are long-lasting, natural, pigment-rich explosions of color that beautifully perform double duty as a lip stain as well as a cheek blush. Create a focus on a single feature to give lips that vivid, just-bitten color and cheeks a freshly-flushed look. Excellent under our lip pencils, lipsticks and gloss as it enhances their wear. Layering pigment over top also gives the gel stain's transparent wash of color a more sophisticated look.
