Lip Stain Reviews

 What Are The Safest, And Most Luxurious Lip and Cheek Stains To Use?

We have put together some organic and natural lip stain reviews here to show that it is possible to enhance your natural beauty without all the dangerous chemicals of conventional makeup.

Lip stains and lip tints are the half way point between sheeny glosses and matte lipsticks. Part shine, part color, lip tints add a subtle dose of color without any stickiness or drying effects. Many lip tints and lip stains are hydrating enough to replace lip balms, with the added bonus of color.

100% PURE Fruit Pigmented Lip & Cheek Stain Review

An organic water resistant stain that gives you a beautiful pink tint on your lips and cheeks, without making you look like you’re wearing any makeup. Extra long lasting stain resists sweat, oil and very long days. Colored from organic fruit and vegetable pigments.


Overall, a solid lip/cheek stain, but with some downsides. Does have a bit of a strong taste, so make sure to moisturize your lips prior to application (so you’re not licking them too much).

It does create a very natural look and last for ages, but you’ll find yourself re-applying part way through the day.

Pick a shade that complements your skin tone. Keep in mind that cheek stains look darker in the bottle than on your skin. 


Application: Dab a small amount onto lips and cheeks and and blend. Layer on for more intense color.

100% Pure Pink Grapefruit, Fruit Pigmented Lip & Cheek Tint Review

Pink Grapefruit Glow Lip & Cheek Tint was designed to be used as a cream blush and a lip tint. Pure fruit pigments in a base of skin and lip softening and moisturizing shea and cocoa butters. Highly concentrated with anti-aging vitamins and antioxidants.

While the same brand as our first product, it’s a whole different story here. This stain applies easily, is non-sticky, and helps to moisturize the skin. A little bit definitely goes a long way – the color is very Lip Stain Reviewsstrong, so don’t overdo it.

If you apply delicately, it will give you a very natural look. However, we found it a bit ‘barbie-doll’ (way to hot pink!), so perhaps not great for fair skin types.

Application:  Apply a small amount to the lips or cheeks for a soft natural look.

Overall Recommendation:
