Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Stain Alive Review + Swatches

February 23, 2017


Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes, and in this case, from these 10-ml bottles by Skin Genie.

Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Stain Alive


Skin Genie is an emerging local brand that offers a range of whitening and anti-aging products that cater to different beauty needs. Using only skin-loving ingredients, the brand provides a safe and gentle line of all-natural beauty solutions. Skin Genie products are suitable for even the most delicate and sensitive skin types.

One of their front-liners is the Lip and Cheek Stain Alive, a make up gel that provides color to well your lips and cheeks (duh). It comes in various shades such as Tulip Red, Sunset Orange, Rose Pink, Merlot, and many more.

I initially wanted to get the Creamy Peach and Rose Pink shades, as suggested by Pia from pepperonipia.com, but I don't know how Christmas Red ended up in my cart during my Beauty MNL haul. Turns out that it's a good natural shade too, so I liked it anyway.

I'm not sure if it's just me or the Christmas Red looks more peach-y and the Creamy Peach looks a bit more red, and maybe I interchanged them while swatching? But nope, I checked it twice and swatched it right. That's why it's always important to see actual swatches (especially with lipsticks) before deciding to put something on your cart, because most of the time packaging and description are not that accurate.

What I love about the Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Stain Alive:

  • comes in a handy roll-on applicator which can easily be evened out using a beauty blender or just your fingers
  • contains moisturizing ingredients to nourish lips and cheeks
  • the sweet, sweet scent
  • does not feel heavy compared to other lip and cheek tints
  • highly-pigmented*
  • super duper cheap, retails at 80php each!!


Although, I'm not a fan of:

  • *the stains that it leaves on my fingers
  •  it tends to settle on the middle of my lips, probably because my lips are uneven, so I guess I'll just settle with using it as a cheek tint 

Available in Skin Genie online sellers and Beauty MNL

I highly recommend these tints to make-up newbies and highschoolers since it can give you that needed blush throughout the day for a very affordable price. And with the variety of colors to choose from, you'd definitely find the perfect au naturel look for your skin complexion.


Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Stain Alive is available at Beauty MNLSkin Genie Facebook account, Shopitude España and in Pop Culture Trinoma.
