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.

not for me
Sampled

I don't understand to purpose of this product. It's like putting some type of jelly on your face and lips without any color. I'm not Sure if it is supposed to be a lip stain but it has no color

A wearable bright pink
Sampled

This is a really lovely, bright pink that gains more depth as you layer it on; I've been using it under my favorite light pink lip gloss, which tones down the brightness just enough while providing the perfect amount of moisture, or alone under Chapstick.

LOVE THE BALM!

I really love this product. The color is perfect. I always want color on my lips, but have a problem with the way lipstick feels on my lips. I can put the balm on and forget about it!

Nice & simple

This is a good product if your a more natural person. Gives just the right amount of color for those busier mornings when you don't have much time for full lipstick

Love this stuff!

I haven't used it as a blush but I did use it as a lip stain and it was a beautiful almost-natural looking color that lasted quite a while though not all day.

Love the color

I really love the color this gives my lips, I don't use it as a cheek stain because I feel it may be too dark, and it has an odd smell but I love the color!

Awesome lip gloss!
Sampled

I really like this product! It gives a great color to your lips. Its not too strong but just enough for a quick swipe as I'm walking out the door. It does dry my lips out a tad bit but I just throw on some chapstick and I'm good to go. Long lasting color. I have not tried it on my cheeks yet but I really love the product!

O.K. Product
Sampled

This was my only experience using a stain and I didn't love it. The color wasn't bad, but it felt a bit uneven and it was difficult to control the color intensity. Even mixing with some lip gloss didn't help all that much.

Works well, just pricey for what it is.
Sampled

I liked how this gave a nice, natural look to my lips, but I would prefer to spend that amount of money on more than just a stain.
