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.

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.

Natural and long lasting

I actually tried the Prom Queen color from one of my friends who also has Birchbox and was SO JEALOUS. This product is great, being natural, making your lips smooth, and has a great color. Would definitely purchase this in the future.

great!

this product is awesome because it looks great on lips and is super moisturizing, but it also is good on cheeks too without being too wet on your skin. I love this product and use it every day

colors transcends

love this stain, especially as primer before gloss. great part about it is it has staying power and you can adjust the amount of color you want when applying, little for light tinge and a lot for a nice date in dim light

love this

This stain is great. It is jelly-like in consistency and a little goes a long way. You just dab a small amount on the cheeks and blend in. it creates a natural and subtle pop of color. I didn't really use it on my lips, but only because i like a nude lip.

OK, but sticky

This product was a little weird for me. On my cheeks, it felt strange, so I used it mostly on my lips. It is a little watery at first. Its nice that you can add an additional layer for more color. I didn't find that it lasted very long for a "stain."
