Color Stains Make Me Happy

Although at first I was hesitant, because they looked kind of messy, I am completely in love with Cheek and Lip Stains. They are so sheer and natural looking, you almost don't need any other makeup. Great for Summer and Early Fall!

Here are a couple of my favorites:

Benetint Cheek and Lip Flush - Celebrating thirty years of fame, this is the creme of the crop and one of the originals. It's available for $28, here

The Balm Stainiac - I like this one because of the lipgloss-like applicator. It also comes in three different colors, which is nice. Available for $14, here

i must admit to being a benefit junkie. love their products! one of their make up artists did me and all of my bridesmaids for my wedding and it's been downhill ever since...well for my make up drawer anyway. i am now logistically challenged to have the time to use all that i buy but that is a whole other post...

it's really not that big a deal... no worse than blush, i think... it can be streaky if you don't blend it in, though, so i would recommend using a foundation brush to smooth it out... other than that, it's great for cheeks and lips too...!

they have always scared me. are they easy to clean off your cheeks if you mess up? does it stain your cheeks for like all day or do you have to worry about putting it on again? if you want to take it off is it really hard to get off your face?

beware the benetint screw top! if you tighten too much, the plastic will break and you'll never be able to get it closed! other than that, fab product!

Indeed, CortneyLynn, don't use any powder or powder-finish stuff until you're done putting on liquids and gels.

Cheek stains are fantastic, but they work a lot better if you use foundation first. FYI, I guess.
