Lip & Cheek Stain
The lip & cheek stain strikes the right balance between not too pink, a little red wine-y, and a little black berry-y. Alkanet and beetroot give this stain its rich color and its mild and earthy scent, with just a touch of essential oil of rose geranium. Rose geranium is used in aromatherapy to reduce nervousness and tension, and has mild antibacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties which all aid in the overall health of the skin. A little dab of this stuff on the apples of your cheeks and on your lips adds just the right dose of color and the beeswax gives this stain great staying power. Put a little on for a subtle effect or more for a lipstick like look.

I'm not a makeup wearer but wanted something to brighten my face that was "environmentally-friendly." This is great. It isn't clumpy or thick. I love the scent and the amount of tint. I tried it with the Zero Waste Tinted Facial Sunscreen. Quite subtle (husband noticed, mother did not). Happy to find something that fits my eco, minimalist leanings.
I really like the fact that this is a “stain.” I put it on in the morning and it gives my lips a bit of color for a while. For me (I have fair skin and hair) the color may be a bit deep for summer, so I’m thinking of ordering the dusk lip paint to use now and save this one for the cooler months. The hue of this lip stain is interesting—sort of brownish reddish purple. As others have stated, it goes on a bit dry—I use my Burt’s clear lip balm afterwards and all is well! I tried it once on my cheeks, but there was something about the color and slight difficulty with spreadability that dissuaded me from trying it again.
It works great and easy to apply. The stain stays put and hasn’t been rubbing off on to my mask like other products I’ve used.
I absolutely love this so much! It is moisturizing and is a light tint but can be layered for more and more color. Smells fabulous! It’s perfect.
This is what I wanted, a color that is so fresh and natural so I can just do a little color on my cheeks and lips and I'm ready. It's rich color but nice and sheer. It smells nice and the tin is eco friendly.
