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 love lip stuff and wanted to like this but the color was kind of off for me and not very long lasting - it says you can use it on your cheeks?? i think that would be weird .2
This went on as a gloss but then absorbed quickly as a stain. The color at first turned me off because it was so bright but ended up once you put it on, the color was subtle, like you weren't wearing any color and it was your natural shade of lips. If I just want a little color, this is my go to!4
I've always loved lip tints. They've been my favorite lip product for years. I've never had one like this though! Firstly, I haven't had one that comes as a gel-- I usually get a liquid that comes in a bottle or a lip marker. Secondly, I've always opted for more natural shades that are somewhat close to my lip color. I was surprised at how much I loved this hot pink lip stain. It's remarkably flattering. I have used it as a blush as well, but it really is much better as a lip product. If you're applying it as a blush, try drawing a stripe on each cheek with the stain and then use a blush brush to buff it out to avoid creating splotches on your face (using your fingers won't get good results.) Also, if applying as a lip product, try layering it on rather than applying a large amount at once if you're going for a more pigmented look.5
My product was so dried out when I got it like the cap was not on tight. I tried it but it was just horrible on my cheeks and lips. I am not sure if it was because it was so dried out. Hopefully they get safety seals on more products because on these it would of helped.3
I used this a couple of times and I got so many compliments on the color on my lips. If used in small amounts you can make this look natural or build it up for a more dramatic tint.4
I use this daily under my lip color as a base. It dries quickly and even if my lipstick wears off, this light color stays and looks very natural. Many times on weekends I just use this and cover with gloss and go!4
At first I loved the product the color was something I liked but after using it a few times it was annoying that after an hour you could barely tell I had it on anymore it doesn't have a great stain or long lasting effect3
I loved getting to try this product - I had been wanting to try a new stain without spending a ton of money to find out I didn't like it. I loved this one immediately! I use 2 coats, let each dry, and then add a gloss on top. Love the color and how long it lasts!5
loved this product!! my kids also liked using it too. I'm not really big on color but now I am!! used this product quickly and am looking forward to another lip glass from birchbox. I've never been disappointed yet!
this was a great product it wasn't too dark or light and you could layer it to intensify the color. As oppose to the lipstick cream base this one lasted longer and didn't smear or get on your teeth. I loved it the color was light sheer but intense color megenta pink with one use of the wand application and if applied with a few more coats after drying went to a deeper almost deep pink not quite red......but bright and deep colored without overpowering due to the sheer way the color applied as a stain. loved this product a nice change from sticky lip gloss that's nice but comes off and as well from cream lipstick that gets all over your teeth. the lip brush was made so you could form the correct lines for the upper lip as well just be careful applying but it doesn't dry right away so you can wipe off if it gets out of line. lasts well and does t leave weird looking lips as the stain color fades or flake off like some lip stains do. just very easy gliding too on application.4
