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. 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.
Got this as a sample and there's nothing special about it. The brand is great and I wanted to like it but even after several layers, the color barely shows up on the lips and I hate the sticky feeling of applying it to my cheeks.2
Great color and consistency. Perfect stain for lip.4
Feels great, doesn't dry out your lips. Also you can apply as little as you want or as much as you want, and it creates different shades of red stain. It looks great with lip gloss over it.5
One of my faves. Leaves a natural stain on your lips.5
I like this as a light alternative to lipstick. If you load it on, it gets slightly sticky, but otherwise it's great, and lasts for half of the day.3
I can't speak on using it on my cheeks, but it this is the best lip stain I've used so far. The color initially goes on kind of light but you can layer it to make it darker and it doesn't get sticky.5
Overall this is a good lip stain. It applies easily and lasts for several hours. The application got to be a little bit gummy and it would peel/flake after a while. I will say that this one is better than most other lip stains I have tried.4
I like how it goes on. Sometimes I use it under my regular lipstick. It gives a light stain that will add color to my pale lips. I do wish it had a bit more moisturizer capabilities. It seems to dry my lips a bit.4
One of my favorite Birchbox products. Great stainer. Lasts long. I would recommend it to anyone. You should get it!5
My daughter loved this whole box. Which I was surprised since she really doesn't like make up very much. Nor skin care.3
