Late at night, while I’m curled up in bed scrolling TikTok like a little Midnight gremlin, I always end up stumbling upon a beauty or house product that makes me go “ok, I need to try that ASAP!”
This time is was Wonderskin, a peel and reveal lip stain that goes on blue but peels to reveal a rosy color (rather, whatever shade you bought.) It’s rumored to last all day and since I can’t seem to make lipsticks survive a whole meal without fading, I was intrigued. And I figured you would be, too.
As with all my Saw It On Social review posts, where I test out those social media famous brands or products and spill the tea, this isn’t sponsored. I paid $30 of my own monies to try this out for you guys!
Ok, disclaimer over, let’s get into the good stuff.
Tell Me About The Wonderskin Brand
I’ve never heard of them before I saw that TikTok, but Wonderskin was founded in back in 2019 by a Korean couple who wanted to create a brand offering cruelty-free makeup and gender-neutral K-beauty skincare products. They offer some creams and serums and an eyebrow tinting kit, but by far their most famous product is the Wonder Blading Lip Kit (aka peel and reveal lip color).
What’s In The Wonderskin Lip Kit?
It’s paraben-free, vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free, though it can contain dyes that could irritate your skin. I have sensitive skin and it didn’t give me a rash like some lipsticks can (but you should test it on yourself in a small patch first!) Here are the Wonderskin Lip Kit ingredients listed:

Wonderskin Wonderblading Reviews: Does The Lipstain Work?
Well, yes and no. Mostly, it takes practice to get it right. As with a lot of lip stains or all-day-wear lipsticks, you need to act fast on cleaning up any smudges or uneven lines, or it’ll quickly set and leave you with smudgy lip color.
How To Use The Wonderskin Liquid Blading Kit
The key to long-lasting color and even applying is using a lip scrub first. If you already have a lip scrub you use in your beauty routine, your lip skin will probably already be exfoliated and smooth enough to just go ahead and use the lipstick.
But, if you’re someone like me and don’t always use a lip scrub steadily, it’s best to first scrub and wash your lips to make sure the skin is even, not flakey and clean. I’m currently loving this lip scrub!
You’ll also want to make sure your lips are moisturized and soft by using one of these best Korean lip balms.
Then apply the top layer, which will be the blue tint. As you know from all those TikTok videos, this goes on blue but will eventually peel and come off pink, or red, or whatever your shade is that you bought.
After you waited 60 seconds, use the tiny activator spray bottle to mist your lips. Almost instantly you’ll be able to feel and see the blue lip layer go stiff. It’s time to remove it!
The peel layer is hard to actually peel with your fingers, as it doesn’t come off in one easy go like it does on TikTok. Plus, peeling it with your fingers leaves them stained. But the kit comes with a little black cloth wipe that takes it off quickly to reveal a natural-looking lip stain that’s stain proof on your skin (or food and cups, that’s always my problem)
How To Get Lipstick Off Your Skin
Unlike other all-day lip stains, I found the Wonderskin was really easy to remove with a makeup wipe and would fade evenly. This is actually a really nice perk – sometimes, these long-lasting color are TOO hard to remove and it’s like going into a warzone come bedtime just to get it off.
So, What’s Our Honest Wonderskin Lip Stain Reviews?
For the claim of lasting all day in full color? Eh, not exactly. It lasts a really long time, but if I apply it before breakfast it won’t be there at dinner time. But it lasts through lunch and snacks and allll the water I drink throughout the day. Plus, it’s fun to use and I like the shade I bought a lot.
The Activation Spray Ran Out Too Fast
My major beef with this product? The activator spray ran out on my 8th time using the kit. I’m so disappointed because that’s needed to fully activate the color and make it easy to remove. For a $32 lip kit, I would expect it to last way longer than 8 uses.
I Would Buy It Again
That being said, if they can offer a larger activator spray, I would buy this again. It’s easy and fun to use, doesn’t irritate my skin and the color lasts for *much* of the day. If you’re on the hunt for a fun Christmas gift or stocking stuffer, this would be a fun thing to include as well. Buy it here.
Really, the only downside was my spray ran out too quickly, but I like the product and it really works. TikTok did it again!
Great review! I too ran out of activator before the lip stain. So disappointing. I’d buy again, but not without a larger activator bottle.
it made my lips burn.. and a bit of a red irritation spread below my bottom lip which i found odd.. anyone else say anything like that? i emailed wonderskin we will see what they say
You don’t really need the activator. I use cold water and it does just fine.
