If you’re looking for melt-proof makeup that lasts, cheek stains provide just the right amount of color to add a lasting glow.
Just smile and pop cheek stain on the apples of your cheeks, and you’re good to go!
TIP: The easiest way to apply a cheek stain is by rubbing a little stain on your fingers, then applying it on your cheeks using feathery swipes.
Here are three cheek stains worth exploring ❤️.
After 15 years, this award-winning cheek stain had a packaging makeover to reduce your carbon footprint. The water based, push-up gel still has the same long-wearing formula enriched with t5 super fruit complex.
I have this cheek stain in iconic Flush and love the gorgeous berry shade ((it’s the shade that SJP used while filming SATC) . The stain feels a bit sticky when you apply it, but blends well into your skin.
The current shades are:
- Glisten – golden peachy pink
- Blissful – warm peach
- Natural Beauty – sheer berry rose
- Flush – sheer berry
- Exposed – nude w/ pink undertones
- True Love – sheer watermelon
Benefit was one of the first beauty brands on board with a cheek stain back in the day. They’ve added to their collection with Posietint.
Brush on three strokes of this petal-pink stain for hours of smudge-proof color.
I’m a big fan of It Cosmetics and all the anti-aging ingredients the company infuses into their products.
Developed with plastic surgeons, the Vitality Cheek Stain is the first cheek stain to contain hydrating and brightening properties. The stain is also talc-free so it never clings to fine lines and wrinkles.
The shades include:
- Magical in Mauve
- Matte Sweet Apple
- Pretty in Peony
- Radiant in Rose
