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.

Interesting product
Purchased

I really like this product as a blush, but as a lip stain I think it's pretty dry. Makes my lips somewhat uncomfortable. But as a blush, it is great! Super easy to apply, easy to blend, and looks natural. I've ordered the full size for myself, and will be ordering for my daughter too, since she can't seem to leave mine alone!

Lipstick

This was the weirdest lip stain ive ever used. It lasted like 5 minutes and just wasnt a good color for me.

Great Stain
Purchased

I love this product for both lips and cheeks. It's not at all sticky and provides a lasting pop of color. I got this as a sample in the "beauty queen" color and I plan to purchase it once it runs out - definite beauty staple.

Nice but drying

Love the color and easy application. I wish the color lasted and didn't make my lips feel chapped and dry.

Nice

I really like this product! It goes on really well and has great pigment if you apply it heavy. The effect of the stain doesn't last very long though.

Can't figure out

I cannot figure out how to use this and get smooth, blendable color to the cheeks. It's way too pink for my lips, plus I don't wear lip color ever. But I'd like to try it as a blusher...just can't get it to look natural and not like a clown.

Oooh

I'm not a huge fan of color on my lips but this is wonderful. It doesn't overdry my lips, it leaves a soft rosy shade on my lips for a couple of hours.

just a hint

I guess if you want "just a hint" than you will be satisfied with this product. I felt it did not last and was not dark enough to make a noticeable difference.

all in one!

I LOVED this all in one lip stain! i love the way it looked on my lips, i was able to apply it to make it as light or as dark red as i wanted. it was LOVLEY! i was also able to put a little on my cheeks and was able to cary one little bottle versus a brush and blush and a lip stick. This product is great especially for on the go!
