Most stains are total day-ruiners. Marinara sauce on your white jeans, wine on your new dress ... and then you become that awkward "stain girl" at the party who is frantically asking everyone if they have a Tide To Go pen in their purse. Nobody ever does.

But in the beauty world, stains are actually a good thing. A great cheek stain can brighten up even the most sallow complexion. And cheek and lip stains are the perfect way to achieve that effortless, "I'm not really wearing any makeup (but I am actually wearing makeup)" look.

And sure, it would be nice if we were all walking around with gorgeous, just-bitten lips and flushed cheeks on a daily basis, but that's just not the real world. We can only eat so many strawberry popsicles before those pretty stained lips inevitably fade. We need a little help to get that gorgeous flush.

So we've rounded up the best reader-approved cheek and lip stains so you don't have to waste your money on the stuff that just doesn't work. These stains have the best staying power, look the most natural, and help give you that perfect rosy glow every single time.

One reviewer says this cheek and lip stain gives "even, pretty, natural color that stays on for hours. What a nice change from lip gloss!"
