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 first tried this product in my monthly birchbox and was waiting to buy a full-size version when I earned enough points. So I did exactly that! It is hands down the BEST lip stain I have ever tried.5
I found it hard to apply this product evenly, so the 'stain' was not an even color across my lips. Also found that once it's on it's hard to spread if you let it sit for even a couple of seconds. My lips looked stained all right! Plus it felt like it just sucked the moisture out of my lips, so if I have to apply a gloss or balm on top of it, I might as well just use a lip gloss. Interestingly, when gloss or balm is applied on top of it, it comes right off.2
I like any product that can multi-task like every woman does! This doubles as both blush and lip color...and maintains color. I like it because it is a double-threat in my purse!4
I just want to say that this has been the best lip product I've ever used. I will never buy lipstick again. I love that I can control how dark or light it goes on. I love that it lasts for hours and hours and hours. It looks so natural that people think its my natural lip color. I like to put in on after cleansing my face in the morning and then follow it with Dr. Lipps Nipple Cream. This stuff is worth every cent, buy it!5
It was really drying. I haven't tried it as a blush, because I have naturally rosy checks- or whatever- but I've used it as a lip stain. The color, Beauty Queen is really pretty and I love it. It lasts about four hours, but I can rarely leave it that long. It completely dries out my lips in an hour, even over lip balm. I want to love it, because the color is really nice. But I can't.1
I love this balm. It gives your lips the perfect and natural look of pink, with a little gloss on top it's very flattering.4
I wasn't a fan of this, it was a nice feel stain and dry but too dry and the color faded quickly2
I usually don't like to wear anything but lip balm on my lips it always feels sticky to me, this wasn't the case with this product, it was light, smooth and a perfect color! And I could use it on my cheeks too!5
Most stains I've found tend to feel super sticky when they dry. Because this one is water based, it doesn't feel sticky and it's more blendable. I only wish it came in more shades!4
I love the sheerness of the color - provides a nice tint without the heaviness or transferrableness of a lipstick. Great for summer, great for a quick "need to look fresh" update to your makeup. That it can double as a blush is a bonus!
Be careful when putting it on lips - it is a stain, afterall!
