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.

Perfect Stain!
Sampled

I loved this sample! The stain was just deep enough to look bitten but not so red it looked like I had an accident with a cherry popsicle. It dried nicely but didn't dry out my lips. I loved it!

One of my all time favorite products from Birchbox. It goes on smooth, keeps lips hydrated and lasts for hours without coming off on drinks. Great product!

Perfection

I have always been one to feel insecure about wearing lipstick. This is perfect. I put it on and put gloss over it

Made me love rosy cheeks
Sampled

I never use blush because I am Asian and plagued by Asian glow when I go out, but I FELL IN LOVE with this product. It's perfect for day time use. You only need a little dot of the product and then you blend it into the apple of your cheeks with your finger. It adds a nice rosy glow that makes my face appear younger. The sample will last me for a while!

Great Color

This lip stain has a great color to it. I apply once for a more subtle look or twice for something a touch bolder. If you add regular chapstick or lipgloss on top, the color really come alive. I have used other lip stains and the color fades in the middle of my lips but stays strong on the edges, this lip stain stays even throughout all of the lip area. Tried once as a cheek stain, good color, gives you just the right glow.

One of my Must-Haves!
Purchased

I'm forever looking for a lip product that adds color and has staying power. That's why I LOVE this stain!!! It's my perfect date lip because it doesn't leave rings on drinking glasses and is smooch proof. I usually do two layers of this stain and then swipe a moisturizing lip balm or clear gloss over it. Lasts hours, isn't sticky at all, and blends like a dream. Love love love!
