Birchbox Breakdown

There’s only one place we welcome stains: on our lips. This smooth, hydrating balm nourishes and protects lips while giving us a boost of long-lasting natural color for a your-lips-but-better stained look. Hydrating peptides bond with water to smooth and soften dry skin, while green tea extract protects lips with a boost of antioxidants.

How to Use

Apply color to your lips, starting in the center and working your way to the corners. Wear the stain alone, or pair with your favorite gloss.

It glides on like velvet, I feel like I have a super moisturizing chapstick on for the first 2-3 hours, and the color never fades. I always have problems with lipstick rubbing off - and then added to that, the seasonal issue of cracked and peeling lips, so I tend to avoid lip color in the winter. This solves those problems and it smells like you're biting into a chocolate cupcake.

Not really a stain

I really like this product, but it's not as much a stain as it is a gloss. It's not sticky like a gloss, but it has a lightly oily, almost velvety feel. I think the color is great, and it smells great, as strange as that sounds. However, if you are actually looking for a stain, I wouldn't go for this.

Just what I wanted

Love this. It's very glossy and feels like it will go away quickly, but it doesn't. It keeps your lips moist with a nice tinted stain and even has a small scent of cotton candy....but no taste. Really glad I purchased this.

As long lasting as Jeffree Star, but SUPER hydrating.
Comes in 4 colors, 2 yet to be available, but wonderful since it changes to your own PH and body heat.

Worth every cent.

Game changer

This is absolutely amazing I'm obsessed with it. I am a notorious lip gloss hater because it's too sticky, but this is less of a sticky gloss more of an oily feeling. It gives you a natural pop and can be good for any look.
