The Longest Wearing Cheek Stains in the Universe and Beyond!

Morgen Schick Vincent Longo Cheek Stain 1

Cheek stain, loves it hard.

For a long time I only ever wore cheek stain. For serious! Nary a powder or cream blush touched these cheeks it was all about stain and stain was it. My first cheek stain came about at least….10 years or more ago in the form of Morgen Schick Schick Stick Lip & Cheek Stain and till this very day it remains one of my favs ever.

Stains weren’t really something around at the time so Morgen’s version was a bit of a novelty. After that Benetint launched and I was on that one like white on rice and soon after more brands started releasing their version of the cheek stain including Lorac, Revlon, and Stila.

With Summer arriving soon you might want to explore your best cheek stain options that have the longest wear. A blush that will get you through a long day poolside or at the beach. One that will stick around through intense heat, humidity, and sweat….

These are my top two picks for Longest Wearing Cheek Stains!
