Cynthia Rowley

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.

Very Nice
Purchased

I ordered this trio after trying a sample in my Birchbox. The purple and the light pink are really nice, but the other is a really orangey/pink looking color, and just looked silly on me. These are nice because they are not sticky, and fee like you are wearing nothing at all. They last a pretty good amount of time, too. Not "high end" by any means, but for the money, they are nice to wear. And the best part....no sparkles!!!!

Very disappointing
Purchased

When these arrived, they were dried out. It was difficult to get any out of the tubes. They were "cracked" looking upon arrival. The colors look pretty but couldn't get enough out of the tube to really tell.

No Sticky like other balms !

I usually don't wear lip Stains or balms because I find their texture strange and sticky. But I was presently surprised by The Cynthia Lip Stain in Sugar it was just very nice and smooth and didn't feel like you were wearing glue. If I were to buy a lip balm/Stain it would only be this one.

I love this lip stain trio! The colors are all amazing and this is the first stain I've used that doesn't dry out my lips. I use them everyday!

just okay

Got the light pink shade as a sample and wasn't too impressed with it. I felt that it was almost a little chalky in texture. It just didn't go on as smooth as I thought it would.

lovely matte

One of my favorite stains. Usually stains feel dry on my lips but this went on well and stayed moisturized all day. Great natural enhancing colors - Sugar.

bad 90s color, paled my lips, no benifit

I was so excited to see a lip color in my box! I love lip colors but Ive never been a 'nude' girl. When I put it on it felt like cheap drug store lip gloss and it actively paled my naturally pink lips several shade closer to my skin tone. It did not stay or stain, nor did it leave my lips softer. I have no idea why anyone would use this.

Just what I was looking for

I am not a huge fan of lip glosses or lip sticks. This gives me the color I want without the goop. Perfect!

Thick and creamy

I liked the thick, creamy feel of this lip strain when applied.
There is a hint of color so this can be used with or without a lipstick.
Even after the gloss was gone, my lips still looked more moisturized than usual.
