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.

Good, lasting color
Sampled

I did not expect to like this product. I reminded me of some cheap lipgloss you give pre-teens but was pleasantly surprised to find it actually has pretty lasting color and smells good.

Love it even after 6 months
Sampled

I've been using this as a cheek and lip stain almost every day for 6 months, and I really love this product. Lasts all day. The product lasts a long time too...I probably have a couple more months before I need to buy another one. My favorite product I've sampled or purchased from birch box.

Good 2-in-1
Sampled

Product is easily blended when used as a cheek stain. Although the sample appears and initially goes on as fire engine red, the texture/consistency allows for easy blending. Color is subtle but noticeable. Very pretty. Lasts all day. Have not yet tried as lip stain. May be a tad heavy for lips but appears it would wear same as a gloss feels. Overall, I have used the product more than once as a cheek stain and have enjoyed it!

Good Light Stain
Sampled

This stain is good for every day use and is natural looking. However, I would probably want the color to be darker if I was going to wear it at night. I haven't used the stain on my cheeks yet but it is really easy to apply on my lips.

I like this product. I love the cheek color, don't love having to use my fingers to rub it in.

Okay

I really wanted to like this. The color (beauty queen) is great. Unfortunately there isn't much color payoff, and you really just get a hint of color. I also found the formula to be very drying to my lips. As far as a stain goes, it lasted a long time.

I LOVE this stuff!
Sampled

I was skeptical when I saw the stainiac in my box. I thought the color looked too bright and that I would have clown circles on my cheeks when I applied it. I was so wrong! This goes on lightly and is very easy to blend--much easier than the cream blush I was already using. The color looks very natural. I love it and will likely purchase it.

Not my favorite

This was okay to use on your lips. Not crazy about color nor did it last, but I would never use it on my cheeks again. Too shiny/greasy.
