Birchbox Breakdown

You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. Our motto: Why use two products when you can get the same effect with one? This two-in-one lip and cheek stain gives us a natural, understated flush and helps us get out the door faster. The gel formula looks dark in the tube but delivers a sheer tint. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink, Prom Queen is a lovely rose pink, and Homecoming Queen is a dewy peach.

How it Works

The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

How to Use

The handy wand makes applying this stain a breeze. Swipe onto your lips as you would a regular lip gloss. To use as a cheek stain, smile and dab two or three dots onto the apples of your cheeks. Gently blend the pigment into your cheeks using small circular motions.

Love Stainiac!
Purchased

I really enjoyed my sample of Stainiac. I liked it so much that I purchased the full size. I never like having to reapply lipstick so lip stain is perfect for me. I also like applying it to my cheeks.

Travel-friendly, long lasting

At first I was hesitant to try this product. I tried it once or twice but didn't have an open mind and was weirded out by dotting and rubbing on a liquid color. I put this product away in storage for a few months, and then one day threw it into my work/gym bag and quickly fell in-love! When I'm out and about, it's so easy to just dot on, rub in and then get that extra cheek blush or tinted lip color that makes you look a little more "fresh" and dressy.

Really liked this

I really liked this! It doesn't take much to get a good stain and the color is pretty universal. I would definitely look into buying more of this once my sample runs out.

LOVE

Fantastic color, lasts through coffee, meetings and gum chewing. Great with just a swipe of Chapstick! A staple in my bag.

If you like a gel lip/cheek stain, this is the one for you

Generally, I prefer a cream to gel lip/cheek stain because I have very dry skin and gels do not apply as well. However, this product has great staying power and I loved the color of my sample.

Meh

I thought the consistency was a little too sticky to use on my cheeks. When I used it on my lips, the color was decent, but I didn't think the stain really lasted very long.

Perfect Hue
Purchased

I love this product. I have never used a stain before but I am a huge fan of gloss and blush. It is so great to learn that there is an item that can be used for both. The color is perfect, not too dark, and lasts all day on my combination skin.
