Stila Yumberry Crush Lip and Cheek Stain

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you read this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

I had been wanting to try a lip stain for awhile and wondered which brand would be good.  I admit I am not familiar with many because I have avoided them due to their inability to be blended seamlessly on both my lips and cheeks.  I looked up brands that had lip stains and noticed several have cropped up since my last try.  So many choices and I couldn't make up my mind.  I just left it as is.

Then Sephora had their VIB sample bag promotion.  Instead of going to a Sephora store I opted for one inside JCP.  I am glad I did because my makeup fairy must have been listening or observing my lip stain quandary and inside my bag was a full size Stila Yumberry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain (retailing for $24USD). 

This lip/cheek stain is housed inside a clicky pen.  Convenient and less messy than a small jar with a brush.  The color is a raspberry pink with very soft shimmer.  The texture has the qualities of a lipgloss but with less goopiness and more of a soft watery gel, not a thin watery type either, as you see in the swatches.  There is a texture to feel when spreading onto the cheek, drying to a stain finish.

I am not one for applying any stains on my cheeks because they don't sit right on my skin.  However as a lip product, I do like this one because it isn't thin and watery.  I can control the application and build up the color without it skipping.  It does dry and may feel dry for some which can easily be remedied with a topping of gloss.  The color lasted all day for me which did dilute somewhat when I ate a salad but it didn't completely disappear.

For me, I like this one because it is an easy one to use and easy to carry in the bag.  No fiddling around with a watery formula in a bottle that could leak.  Or one that is in marker form that dries up.  With this one as a starter, I think I need to get more lip stains like this one.  I wonder which I should try next?
