A Late Winter Beauty Tip: Lip and Cheek Stain


It’s March but it still feels like warm weather is worlds away. Our new assistant editor, Diana, has a beauty tip for winter that she and her girlfriends swear by to get through these last few weeks: lip and cheek stain. One product for both sun-kissed cheeks and rosy lips that look like you just ate fresh raspberries. An instant winter pick-me-up when your skin needs it the most (come back, sunshine and soon!). Here’s the product her friends and her swear by and some other options as well…



Diana says “I usually start by applying just a dash with my fingers and build on the color intensity gradually depending on my mood or the occasion. Oh, and since it includes beeswax, it hydrates the skin giving you that saucy spring glow that we are all after.”

1. Kiss n’ Tell Posey Rosey Lip Cheek Tint $14 (*Diana’s favorite!)

2. Body Shop Cheek Stain Stick $14

3. Captain Blakenship Organic Rosy Red Lip & Cheek Stain $21

4. Carryon Lip and Cheek gel $22

5. Lip2Cheek $36

6. Benefit Posietint Cheek & Lip Stain $30

What do you think? Would you wear a little lip and cheek stain while you’re waiting for spring to arrive?

What a coincidence! I just bought Tata Harper’s cheek and lip stain today. I love it already. I got lots of compliments this afternoon and it took a minute to apply.
