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 beet root 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 agree with the other reviews, that the color is quite subtle, which I like personally as it gives off an enhanced natural look but if you apply it a few times it becomes darker. The scent is a nice earthy rose. Its very subtle for cheeks too. I have sensitive skin and didn't get a reaction when I used it as a cheek stain.
Love how natural it looks and that it’s two in one!
I expected this to be a nice bright fuschia/pink but when I put on two layers it shows just a hint of added neutral pink. It also does have a faint beet smell which isn't the greatest but not a deal breaker.
I love everything about this product (the color, texture, packaging) except for the overpowering scent - I can't even use it on my lips because then I'm tasting it all the time and the scent is even overpowering when it's on my cheeks. I would be so happy if there was an unscented version of this product available.
I was a little worried how this would look on my skin. I am Asian with tan skin and yellow undertones, and I was worried that the color would be too washed out but it didn't. it gave my lips a nice rosy shine that is perfect for every day. It smells really pretty too. I gifted it to a friend who has pink undertones and it looks nice on her too.
