I'm not sure I would go for a cheek stain - I don't have issues with my blush wearing off like I do lip color.

i wouldn't suggest lip envy as a cheek stain, it's very good for lip staining, but it's potent and precise. you'd probably end up with blotches on your cheeks for a day or two.

YES! I have it in Envious, and I always use it as a cheek stain. Because Envious is a lighter stain, I'll apply a couple layers (my skin is a medium/olive). The trick is to blend quickly using your fingers and do one cheek at a time.
Take the wand and swipe it on the apple of one of your cheeks, quickly blend down and towards the hairline. Once you've blended it, do the other cheek. If you're fair or light skinned, then 1 coat on each cheek might be enough, but if you want more of a pop and for it to last allll day (it really does last! even after a workout!) then start the process again. Swipe the product on the apple of the cheek, blend, and then do the other cheek. I think I do about 3 to 4 swipes on each cheek.
It leaves a beautiful flush, and if you're one of those people that likes your makeup to be super precise, then this might not be for you, but try it anyways! (It's makeup, it'll come off!)
Lastly, since you're using your fingers to blend they will be stained as well, but no worries! As soon as you're done take some lotion (preferably a creamier one) and rub it on the palms of your hands, focusing on the fingertips. This helps lift most of the dye in a gentle way. Use a makeup remover or astringent to remove the rest.
I know it sounds like alot, but it seriously takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish, you get a beautiful mouth and cheeks that won't budge for at least a couple hours (the cheeks will last longer than the lips), and if you do it under your foundation it'll still show through (just use a sheerer application of foundation, or use a heavier application of the stain)
Hope this helps you gals out there, especially if you're in the pool or out on a hot summer day!

I wouldn't try using Lip Envy as a cheek stain, because the color absorbs very quickly, and you'd possibly end up with dotty or blotchy color.

After seeing your question, I actually tried it. I mixed the lip envy with some sunscreen and blended it on my cheeks, but it turned out a little shiny. I put some finishing powder(Mine is Cover FX) over to mattify, and boom-Super rosy cheeks, but a natural looking flush. I have Greedy, so maybe Envious you can use alone on your cheeks, but Greedy you can definitely not use plain as blush. The problem I have with it is that it will sink in to pores and make blemishes very visible. Perhaps if you use some primer before putting it on, it will make it better. Although it does work, i wouldn't really recommend it. It's pretty uneven and dries quicklt, so it's very difficult to blend and make it even. For a similar(but better) flush, I would recommend Tarte Cheek Stain- It's Amazing with a capital A.
Nope I havent....
