Cynthia Rowley Beauty

Birchbox Breakdown

Like bouncers at a nightclub, we have to be selective about allowing new beauty products into our already-overcrowded handbags. But this creamy lip stain trio is the rare product that cuts straight to the front of the line. Equal parts playful and polished, these formulas offer the moisture and shine of a gloss, paired with the ultralong wear of a stain. The three versatile shades were inspired by Cynthia Rowley’s spring makeup looks from New York Fashion Week, and the slender packaging features her signature gold foil design. So go ahead—let this trio under the velvet rope.

How it Works

These creamy lip stains are vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free. It doesn’t get more on-trend than Tulip, a radiant orchid (aka Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year). There’s also Sugar, a sophisticated nude-pink, and Valentine, a punchy hot pink.

How to Use

Sweep over lips with the velour wand. Repeat for a heavier dose of pigment.

Great Lip Stain

I am a lip gloss person, but this product works really well. I like how it feels on the lips. The color last longer than most lip stains.

It feels creamy and the color stays. My sample was sugar and I really like it. Can't wait to try the 3-pack.

Creamy Lip Stain!?

I loved the creaminess of this lip stain! This product lasted long (because it's a stain) and left my lips not looking dry but actually moisturized. The sugar color is perfect if you are looking for a natural looking pinky tint.

I love these lip colors
Purchased

These are my new favorite. I love that they go on like a gloss but really do stain your lips so the color lasts longer than most similarly-applied products. I also like the "stain" effect, which I think most products that claim to be stains don't live up to. These don't look dry or caked on in order to last a long time, the color just sticks like drinking red wine (but intentional and pretty). The purple is awesome, it's more of a deep pink when it goes on and the coral is also fantastic. The lighter pink doesn't do too much for me but I'm glad I got to try it out.

Love these lip stains! I thought it was a bit pricey for lip gloss/stains but totally worth it and I was worried about the purple tint but totally wearable and not flashy at all!

It's a good stain, but dry

I typically like my lip color to have a softer, shinier color. this was a bit drying and pretty matte. good color though!
