Vincent Longo Pearlessence Gel Stains

I've heard a lot about these Vincent Longo Gel Stains, but it took a while for me to actually buy one from my local Sephora. They look just like a regular lip gloss (complete with the furry wand), but what is inside that tube is very different.

I was reluctant to buy because it looked like a frosty mess whenever I tested it on my hand. The color (Dolceacqua) is a pretty berry color with a bit of violet in it. It is incredibly long lasting, which always drove me crazy once I tested on my hand. I had it on my hand for hours afterwards, walking around my mall!

However, the hype about this product was everywhere, and I finally purchased it a few weeks ago.

It is amazing! What looks like a lip gloss from the set of Dallas it's so frosty in the tube becomes a very pretty lip stain with a subtle shimmer. Really, it honestly does! The color is a bit darker than most berry tones, and the violet tone makes it very pretty. The stain lasts about 6 hours or so on me, so although I do need to reapply it's great to have some color all day long! As well it seems to mix well with most lip glosses, adding great depth to the color.

So, next time you need a lip stain, overcome the appearance of 80's frost and try out Vincent Longo's Lip Stains, I promise you won't be sorry!


  1. Wow, thanks for that tip! Ido believe that's the kind of thing I'd never try if it wasn't for you. Heading to Ebay now!


  2. I will get mine back out tomorrow and give it a try. I didn't love it when I first got it, but it's been a few months.

  3. i just bought this and i love it! like the above poster, i would have never picked this up (i've probably passed it a hundred times at my sephora) if it wasn't for this review :) i love your site!
