answer 1
I think most users here are using it solely for the lips, which maybe explains some posters' confusion. Remember there are always a lot of variable reasons for breakouts, but if you start using it only on your lips and clear up, then just keep it off the cheeks. I have really sensitive skin and I typically don't even try stuff on my face unless it's specifically for it.

answer 3
I haven't had an issue with breakouts, and I have fairly sensitive skin. However, for reference, I have an oily T-zone with somewhat dry cheeks. When I use this as a cheek stain, it tends to go on the dry part of my face. Since the gel is pretty hydrating, unlike other stains which can be drying, it actually moisturizes a bit. So no, I've never had a problem with my skin type and this stain. Also never had any problems around the mouth. Hope this helps!

I've never broken out from this, and my son's girlfriend who gave me a gift of a new shade, says she's never had a problem either. For whatever it's worth, she uses the deeper/brighter shades, and I prefer the ones that react with lighter color like Yumberry.

i have similar coloring to you, only more pale. i used the cherry when it first came out because it was the only color. it was pretty nice, a lot like benetint.

now that there are more colors, i think that there are better choices for us. if you want a cool shade, i would go for the yumberry, it is a light mauve and a good base for anything with pink in it... if you want something a little warmer, go for mango. don't be put off by the bright look of the mango. if you apply it lightly it is a really nice coral color.

hope this helps.

check out the natural colors during the summer, golds and blue hues, Sephora makes a like of liquid eyeliners that are awesome. also Kat Von D has a bronzing powder that will give your face a sun kissed highlighted look. it's not half bad as an eyeshadow either!
try greens and reds for the fall, don't freak, that's what the make-up techs are for in store, they're great. Tarte has got some nice reds, plums and greens. Also Stila, very easy gliding on, simple and elegant. oh and don't forget to check out the Make up Forever line. they have an eyeliner that's l think is an Aqua liner, waterproof, and it glides like butter, nice!

I have seen swatches of all these colors, and personally I think that the mango crush or the yumberry crush would be good for your features. They both have light shimmer so they illuminate your face and they won't over power your light skin. Of course, they are still buildable if you want a more intense color. Hope this helps.

I'd definitely suggest the yumberry crush, i have brown hair and fair skin and i think its a perfect pair. If you worried about the color being to bold, only apply 1 or 2 even coats of the stain, and that should be a good amount. But i prefer lipstains over lipgloss and lipsticks, cause you only apply once and your good for the whole day, so there great if you want a look thats not a lot of hassle but has awesome results.

I would NEVER have tried Mango Crush, except that a friend suggested it to me. I LOVE it - especially with a nude or slightly gold-ish gloss on top. I also have the Cherry, which is very pretty. I wanted Pomegranate but the store was sold out the day I was there - I think that would work very well on you. Don't be scared off - when applied, the colors can be subtle and aren't too "out there" at all!

I also have light brown hair, fair skin and green eyes. I really like the Mango Crush shade. It's colorful, but not too bright, and it has a little shimmer which can make lips look plumper. Give it a try!

Some of the other shades, like the Raspberry or Cherry, are much brighter/deeper and better suited for brunettes.

Twist the bottom for 4 to 5 times and wait for it to come out to the brush. I usually do have a problem with twist too many times (cause I don't have the patience), but then I'll use a lip brush to remove excess and apply it with the lip brush, so that nothing is wasted.

I have found that it does not come off if I use a gloss or a balm over it. I also make sure that before I use it, I exfoliate my lips well so that it takes pretty evenly. If any of it comes off when you use balm, its either a residue that didn't stain yet, or just little bits of your lip that are loose.

Except for the Mango Crush they really don't come off when you put a balm or gloss on over them. Just give it a moment to dry and you're good for hours. I have noticed that if the side of the chapstick container drags against it some will come off on it but you really can't tell when you look at your lips. Just apply with caution and you'll be good. Also, it won't come off from kissing, eating, or drinking. I'm sure if you rub your lips a lot it will fade more quickly but that's it.

Try out the lip stain before you wear it for your wedding to be super sure, but I think you shouldn't have any problems. I put on the lip stain (in pomegranate) and let it dry for 30sec-1 minute before closing my mouth/licking my lips. You could apply more coats, waiting for it to dry each time but I usually use one (two for maximum impact). I then top it with a balm. I go on the rest of my day with no reapplications. I eat, drink, and kiss without it coming off. I have eaten dinner and afterwards, my glass still looks clean (no lipstick stain at all). Have a happy wedding. Congratulations!

It applies very well (it has a brush applicator, which is awesome). It's buildable and blendable on your cheeks. Since it's a stain, there isn't any shine once it dries, but wearing a lip gloss over it is definitely an option. However, the mango crush and yumberry crush have shimmer, whereas the rest (I think) do not. Hope this helps!

This is as far as as you can get from "easy application". You have to twist the bottom a million times before the tint comes out --after like ten minutes. Then, you either have too much or too little. The colors are nice, but they are not shiny. The one I've got --cherry-- is like a very soft red; like you just drank some cool-aid. The effect is pretty, but it does dry my lips a lot and is not long-lasting. Most importantly, it is not worth dealing with that applicator. Good luck to you if you do get it though! :)

This applies very easily, and evenly with the built in brush. It goes on glossy, but will dry matte with a thin coat. If you put on a thick coat, it will be glossy for a while, but I've found that it starts to flake on me after an hour or so.

I have the "pomegranate crush," and the color is matte, as I understand are the other colors. You can add gloss later for shine. As far as ease of application, yes. However, I would suggest using a mirror when applying as opposed to applying while driving or something of that nature--unless you happen to be extraordinarily talented. Just give it a couple of clicks and apply. Additionally, allow the stain to set on the lips a minute or two until it dries before licking, applying a gloss, or a second coat. This will ensure that the stain lasts longer.

I had trouble blending the Mango crush, it turned out blotchy for me and really bright. Not to mention it stained my finger. I decided to try using a make up brush to blend the color and it worked wonders. You can try a stippling brush, I think it would help with the problem with the color being too bright on your cheeks. Usually with a stippling brush, it applies the product sheer, which is good because you can determine how bright you want it to be by adding more or less of the product. I used a flat kabuki type Sonia Kashuk brush I got from Target, and it worked really well. It's not a really wide brush either, so its not like it got all over my face. It allowed me to blend the color where I wanted it. Hope this helps, good luck!

Try using a blush brush and gently run the brush over the stain applicator brush. Also try using your ring finger. If its leaving a spot where you first apply it you may need moisturizer on your face first. You could also try a lighter shade and just keep applying until you know how much you need.

I have the same problem. Love it as a lipstick. Can't use it as a cheek stain.

try putting it on your fingers before blending into your cheeks. Also if your skin is dry, that makes it harder to blend out...make sure you moisturize.

This product is not a good stain lip or cheek. I sugest a convertable lip and cheek compact. they are sheer but buildable and have many flattering shades. If you want a powder blush i sugest tatrs clay ones. Hope this helpes!

Just wondering if you are light skinned? If you are, you probably need a lighter color because no matter how little you put on it will still be too much for you. As for not being able to spread the product on your cheek, I'm wondering if you have moisturized your skin enough or if you are putting on powder and then trying to put it on? I just find that it glides nicely over moisturized skin. And you can even put it on over foundation. Hope this helps :)

Try applying a little lip balm first. Something a little waxy like Chap Stic works well. Blot off excess first before applying stain.

I don't really like it as a blush, but when I put it on, I did so right after my moisturizer application - that might help it to spread a little. Also, try dotting up your cheek bones and then blending.

I put it on my finger first and it actually works better on lightly powered skin

What are you using to blend it with? I would recommend a highlighting brush. Also try with a little at first, and be sure to be quick when working with this product.

OK, now that I have discovered that you need to twist the bottom a million times to get the product out, how do you turn it off?
I have a gloppy mess that I am considering just throwing out now. I cleaned the
glop off and the product keeps leaking.

i have two and mine don't do that. Sounds like you might have a defective one - I don't think there is any way to "turn it off."

Same thing happened to me. Unfortunately you probably twisted a few too many times, so you just have to keep wiping the excess until it stops. I would say if you like this product enough to buy it again, be very patient next time and just do a couple clicks at a time. It will take a while, but it's worth saving yourself from a mess again and wasting the product. Hope this helps :)

The first time you use it will need several 'clicks' to get the product up to the brush - but after that, 3-4 clicks is all you will need. Try just a few clicks, then let it sit for 20-30 seconds before trying again because there IS a bit of a delay. I know this does not recover the product you lost - sorry for that. The manufacturer probably should have been more specific when handing these out!

Take it back as it's defective. This product does not come out unless you twist it out. I have never had this problem. Sorry.

That is just for the first use. I do admit it takes a while to get started. After the first use it will regulate and only come out when twisted.

It happened the same to me the first time. The applicator just sucks. I don't think there's a way of turning it off...

Twist it a few times and it will be there the next day. You can't get more on demand you need like 12 hours of patience.

Bring it back to the store and tell them that this product does not live up to its claim!
I am also having a problem with not getting enough colour coming out instantly but I have not over-twitsted it yet. However i can already see that within 7 days I have used up half of the tube :(

I don't think you can reverse the process once the gloss comes out...you really need to be careful not to dispense too much at a time or it will just create a mess...maybe use a lipbrush and take the gloss from the cap and use that until it's not so messy. :) Hope that helps.

You're getting a gloopy mess because of how many times you turned it. When you first prime it, you have to turn it a bunch until just a bit comes out, and then its primed. If you had turned it a bunch of times and happened to surpass that amount, it will keep coming out until it relieves pressure.
