lip and cheek stain
This right here is how I got to know Fat and the Moon products. I bought it years ago at a salon and it was 100% my favorite lip stuff ever. It lasted forever, until I lost it and then decided I should just carry it in our little shop here!
The color comes for alkenet and beetroot! It smells of rose geranium essential oil so you will love it if you love that smell (not everyone does I know!). It tints the lips that perfect winey pink and add a dewy blush to the cheeks.
From the maker, Fat and the Moon:
Alkanet and beetroot give this stain its rich color and earthy scent, with just a touch of essential oil of rose geranium. Rose geranium is used in aromatherapy to reduce nervousness and tension, and has mild antibacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties which all aid in the overall health of the skin. A little dab of this stuff on the apples of your cheeks and on your lips adds just the right dose of color. Because of the beeswax, this stain has great staying power. Put a little on for a subtle effect or more for a lipstick like look.
I don't know about you but I've bought soooo many lip colors only to have the color just not work. Knowing this product is ethically made AND the perfect color is awesome. It's wild how little you need to make a difference. Love the feel!
Lip and cheek stain
There’s not much color!! Wanted to love it but was disappointed.
I LOVE the lip stain (geranium is my fav) - I ripped the box open to grab it and be on my way for camping!
Great product, defective packaging?
I really like the stain, however, the cap doesn't stay on the tin at all. I've taken to keeping it in the box it came in so that it doesn't fall off in my bag. It's a bit of a nuisance.
Hi Jenn, That does sound like a nuisance! We'll happily replace the defective one.
I am loving this lip and cheek stain. The color is subtle but there and it lasts quite a while. I feel good about letting my daughter dabble with it as well. Will definitely re-order for gifts :)
This stain is so moisturizing and the color is perfect for all skin tones. I take it everywhere. And the smell is so yummy Perfect!
I love this stuff! It's the perfect amount of rosy and feels so luxurious on my cheeks and lips. The smell is lovely - rose geranium is one of my favorite scents. Bonus: darling packaging.
Nice color but strange smell
Love the idea of this and the nice color it produces. It has a bit of a strange smell for me though for lipstick which is what I planned on using it for. Will try for blush instead.
