8 Best Lip and Cheek Stains -- and the 3 Worst
See which makeup finds from Benefit, Tarte, CoverGirl and more have our readers glowing and rosy, and which are big disappointments
Why: One reviewer says, "it looks so great on my cheeks. Like blush, but doesn't fall off and looks natural … Also doesn't wear away like lip gloss/stick. BUY IT, it's definitely worth it." Another woman calls it "my favorite lip stain ever. This stain is the only one I have ever found that stays in place without migrating as you speak throughout the day. You can add more or less for color. You need to reapply once after lunch, but otherwise good to go." This reader advises us, "if you only buy one thing BUY THIS!!! I love this product soooo much. It gives such a gorgeous color to cheeks and lips and lasts for ages -- especially on the lips. Unlike some cheap imitations, which I have found stain the skin only where the product is placed at first, this product remains fluid until you have it exactly where you want it. Packaging as usual with Benefit products is beautiful."
