I didn't see much stain happening. Didn't seem like a consistency I would like to apply to my face, either.

Absolutely the best
SampledPurchased

This non-sticky product gives you this cutting-edge natural-but-defined look and is great for lips and cheeks.
I usually don't wear lipstick due to the sticky feeling. I also prefer an invisible makeup so this product was just right!
The mini I received was gone in three weeks, so I purchased the full size. Got maximum complements of how healthy and dewy I look!

Perfect for on-the-go

This stain provides just enough color for my everyday look. I keep it in my purse to swipe on quickly throughout the day. It stays on pretty well and doesn't look overdone. It's almost effortless!

Terrible Color

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.

Amazing!

I am obsessed with this stain! I use it mostly on my cheeks because I agree with other reviews that it has a bit of a weird texture on the lips. It is so easy to subtly add color to your cheeks and you can always add more layers if you want it darker, which means I can use this to wear to work or out at night. I got it as a sample and immediately ordered a full sized version because it is so good at what it does.

I use it on the apples of my cheeks to give a slightly flushed look. Looks natural and lasts all day. My favorite blush ever.

This stain didn't leave much color on my lips and really dried them out. I put balm on after and that took the color right off.

Color wasn't really one that flattered my skin tone. Didn't really like it was a lip color, but was tolerable on my cheeks. Product was fine, just not a good color for me.

It was more like a gloss and less like a stain, hardly any color showed up when I put it on. I thought stains were supposed to be colored?

Love the color!! But it needs to be smoothed out it makes lines on my lips I usually will put a gloss over it.
