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.
This is a long-lasting. lightweight stain, but you have to use several swipes before you get a noticeable color on your lips. As a stain, it should be sheer, but I don't want to have to swipe it3 or 4 times before I get a sheer wash of color. I love the gel like texture for lips and cheeks, though.3
So from the looks of the tube, I expected this to stain really dark, I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually only a little darker than my natural lip color so it gave them just a tiny bit of color. It's initially slightly sticky, but dries really quickly and you pretty much forget that it's even there until you see yourself in a mirror.5
Not a lot of color for a stain. Sample was gifted to my daughter after I tried a few times. I would try another color if available.2
I'm not a fan of this for lips. I felt it dried them out and even though the tint was very faint, it was not a flattering shade. I like this much better for a cheek stain, although I don't think I would purchase.2
I like the idea of this but I did not like how it made my lips feel dry.2
This worked well for a cheek stain but the stain didn't last more than 10 minutes on my lips. The texture was like a gel at first--I haven't used stains that went on with this texture--it felt like Vaseline. The cheek stain worked well, though.3
I have only used this product on my lips and was really looking forward to using it; however, I was not very impressed with it overall. It is very thin and watery. It is a "buildable" product, but even after multiple applications of the stain on my lips, I was unimpressed with the look of it on my lips. It wore of quickly, as well.2
Great name and great product. How nice to have lip color that doesn't disappear in half an hour! Highly recommend this to everyone.4
I only used on my lips. I liked the hint of color. It was subtle. But you can build a little for a little more tint.5
Not a fan of lip stains but this one is a pretty shade.4
