In the title fight for top tints, Skin Genie’s Lip and Cheek Stain Alive! is a defending champion. As the top crowd-fave here at BeautyMNL, it’s gained a round of applause for its long-wearing formula, vibrant color, and natural finish. And if you’re wondering if this gorgeous gel is about to be beat, think again: its latest upgrade is a total knockout that packs a serious punch. Ready to see the prize-winner of all pigments? Check it out, below!


If the OG formula was love-at-first-swipe, then we’re pretty sure that this new-and-improved version will sweep you off your feet. With hyaluronic acid and aloe vera as its star ingredients, it’s made to moisturize and nourish your skin as you wear it.

It also features an entire spectrum of all-natural, skin-saving actives—we’re talking citrus junus fruit extract and grapefruit seed extract, which help fight free radicals, reduce signs of aging, and brighten the complexion. Seriously, at P99 a piece, you definitely get the top end of the bargain!

As for its color payoff, it’s definitely more pigmented than the original. This way, you get brighter, bolder lips that literally last all day long. We would know, because we swatched all 14 shades ourselves. Scroll for our sample looks! Jackie in LOVE LETTER
