Birchbox Breakdown

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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

How it Works

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.

How to Use

The handy wand makes applying this stain a breeze. Swipe onto your lips as you would a regular lip gloss. To use as a cheek stain, smile and dab two or three dots onto the apples of your cheeks. Gently blend the pigment into your cheeks using small circular motions.

I loved this stain. It was very easy to apply and use for conturing. It was kinda light for a lip-pigment, but it still worked.

Great Stuff

Hey everyone,
I really enjoyed this product. Love the color and the color really sticks to your lips. There is no constant reapplying of the product, put it on and you are good to go.

not a huge fan

Strongly dislike the texture of this product when it goes on. Its a little slimy. It is however a great color, and does last awhile.

Kind of weird
Sampled

Maybe I'm just not a fan of stains, but I wasn't fond of this product. It goes on wet, but then dries, leaving no moisture at all which makes your lips feel almost chapped. The color is like a see-thru reddish pink which wasn't flattering in my opinion.

I loved this product! Although I wouldn't exactly call it a lip stain because it was very light, it was the perfect amount of color for my cheeks!

Great lip stain!

I really like this product as a lip stain. Great color and last a respectable amount of time. I was not so impressed with it as a blush/ cheek color. There are other products that do a better job on the cheeks. But for lip color it's just right!

LOVE the natural rosy glow it gives my cheeks, almost sun kissed in the dead if winter.

The lip stain was dark but not too dark. It goes nice with lots of lip gloss on top. I would definitely recommend this for any one.
