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.
I would have to layer this on MANY times before the color showed even a little. Not worth this. I wish it was a more opaque color. I wouldn't apply this on my cheeks either.1
I am all about stains as constant lipstick reapplication is a pain, so I had high hopes for this. I just didn't find that the pigmentation was great, no matter how many coats I put on, and what color I did see disappeared almost immediately. It also made my lips feel really gross, dry and rubbery at the same time.
Since all I see are pretty good reviews, I'm wondering if I got an off sample? But as is, I'd opt for a tinted chap stick or drug store stain/balm (like Revlon) over this.
I didn't love how sheer the color was and it was next to impossible to get off. I would prefer a traditional lipstick or stain.1
I was excited to try this product. But once I did I was very unhappy with it. I used it twice on my lips and then into the trash it went.1
What a bummer to get my second year's welcome box and 3 of the 5 items are repeat items. This was one of them. The product is ok, but I would never use it enough times to even finish the sample. Just not a practical product1
I've used other stains before and the pigment was much richer than this is. To get the intensity I wanted, I had to apply multiple coats and that just made my lips sticky. I made sure to not touch it for a while so it could really do the job staining, but it still ended up fading in middle of my lips. Not something I'll use in the future.1
The red dye in this product makes it come out as cheap and goopy. Won't be reordering. Didn't even atttempt to use it on my cheeks.1
I hated this product. It doesn't stay put and the texture is kind of weird. Also, I hated the color.
I can't stand this stuff. It has the consistency of halfway-set Jell-O. It didn't do much for my lips, and I shudder at the thought of applying something with this consistency to my cheeks. I'm not a fan of stains to begin with, but I gave this one try. I tossed it right away. I wouldn't recommend it!1
I was not very impressed with this product. The color was nowhere as rich as i was expecting it to be when applied, and it wore off easily. I had to reapply multiple times during the day. One thing I expect with a stain is for it to last, and that was not my experience here. I was very excited about receiving this in my birchbox....only to be let down1
