Because of joining Birchbox, I've braved realms I never thought I'd brave: lip stain and rouge. I just was never confident enough I could pull off rosy cheeks and colored lips without looking like a clown... maybe it had something to do with my 12 year old self looking like the Joker after getting into my older sister's cosmetics one time. Anyway, childhood trauma aside, I've sampled some things through Birchbox and decided that yes, a grown woman can rock this stuff and look great! After trying out a few different multi-purpose lip-cheek stains, I decided to get something that seemed to have some pretty great reviews. I don't regret the "risk" of buying something I've never sampled. This stuff is great! As long as you practice "Less is More" on the cheeks, you'll look cute and flushed... not embarrassed and ready for the big-top. As a lip stain, it takes a bit of work, puckering, etc. to get even coverage (I recommend a brush over your fingertip) and you make need a quick layer of balm, but this stain lasts! The tin it comes in is just the cutest thing and instantly classes up your vanity. It's a little bratty about being closed, as the lid needs to be perfectly straight over the container, but hey, I'm more concerned if the product inside the package works as opposed to the packaging itself. You want a long lasting, classic, multi-functional rouge? Go with this one.
