Beauty doesn't have to cost a lot and I think the Skin Genie Lip and Cheek Stain definitely proved it. I've been hearing some buzz about this lip tint, so I thought "you know what? I'm going to get some for my birthday!" just so I can see what the hype is all about.

Packaging-wise, impressive. It comes in a glass roller ball and contains 10ml. You might be thinking "What? Just 10ml?" Babe, that's a lot! This can last you months even if you used this everyday. There's also an expiry sticker on the bottle which I found really helpful.

Considering it's an all-natural gel color for lip and cheeks, it does smell a little fruity, a very subtle and faint scent. It also tastes sweet, which was awesome because the usual tints I've tried all tasted bitter. Truth be told, I'm not fond of using cheek tints, gels, nor cream blushes -- I'm really a powdered blush-gal -- but while swatching these two on my wrists, I found that it was really smooth and easy to blend. I was expecting that Christmas Red would be more pigmented than Creamy Peach, but I was wrong. I also thought Creamy Peach would be super orange, but it tended to be more pink on skin, and on the lips.

How about the longevity and texture? I find it to be super smooth and not drying at all. I've used tints before that would dry my lips after two hours, and that's never been the case with Skin Genie. I usually apply this at 5 a.m. and feel my lips drying around 11 a.m. I re-apply around 2 p.m. and the color lasts until after dinner time. It looks very natural and I can build it up depending on how flushed I want the color to be. It also doesn't stain glasses once it sets on your lips.

All in all, this product is worth the hype! Aside from it being all-natural, pigmented, moisturizing, and long lasting, Skin Genie Lip and Cheek Stains are also very affordable at only PHP 80 from Beauty MNL.

So, are you going to try this out? :)
