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.

Great lip stain
SampledPurchased

I love giving my lips some color before I go out, but I hate lip marks on glasses or when it just fades away. This product is great because it gives lips that color without the annoyance that lipstick or gloss does.

Favorite lip stain
Sampled

This is my favorite lip stain! You can do a little or another coat to make it darker. Great for everyday when you want to go light on the makeup.

Lasted throughout the entire wedding
Sampled

I wore this last night to my friends' wedding, and it lasted almost all night. I just needed one touchup after dinner. It's a bit drying, but a layer of lip balm over top made it look and feel great. Love it!

love this lip stain
SampledPurchased

Ive never used it for cheeks but do like it as a lip stain. It has a nice color and the tint stays on for quite a while even when i eat. I've purchased some for myself and my mom and she loves it too!

wow

This product is very long lasting. I would probably choose a different color than my sample if I do end of purchasing in the future.

Long lasting and light
SampledPurchased

This goes on fairly sheer, just enough color in my opinion, but is buildable for a stronger shade, if you wish. It looks natural and lasts. thinks its a great product

Great color but doesn't last long
Sampled

LOVE the color...that's about it.
A little sticky in the drying. And will give the dreaded lipliner look when it wears off in the middle of your lips so you got to be checking on it. I'll use my sample, but I wouldn't purchase it.

Great lip stain but doesn't last long...
SampledPurchased

This lip stain is great in terms of the natural color it gives off. The only thing is that it doesn't last very long on your lips, especially if you're planning on going out for drinks or a meal.

I keep it in my purse!

This stain is lasting and effective, but not one of those colors that will stand out. It is easy to apply and easy to reapply throughout the day.

Looks great; lasts long time!

The color is great (Beauty Queen) although I've only used it on my lips (i'll give it a try on my cheeks). It's pinker than what I'm used to but after a day or two, I think it really looks nicer than what I've been wearing for years. The color is sheer so it looks less like makeup and it enhances, rather than announces, "I'm here!"
