Two weeks ago, it rained lip and cheek rewards—specifically three shades of Undone Beauty's Lip + Cheek tint that has quickly become a favorite on the app.
For those of you who haven't yet redeemed it, this creamy lip and cheek tint leaves you looking flushed and dewy. Watch Jena Spano, an in-house makeup artist for Undone Beauty, demo how she uses it below.
Lip and cheek products put powder blush to shame, for obvious reasons. I have incredibly dry skin so I'm biased, but I still don't know why anyone would ever want a matte finish over a dewy one. Creamy blush that leaves your skin looking dewy adds to the flushed, healthy and slightly sweaty look you're trying to achieve with blush in the first place. My favorite is Milk Makeup's Lip + Cheek in Werk, and I've been using it for years (I'm not even going to lie to you guys it's been the same stick I first purchased, it's probably expired but it still performs well so I can't just abandon it!!?).
When I asked some SG staff about their favorites, the same 4 products kept popping up...only two had been rewards in the past, and as people who try a lot of products, I thought that was pretty significant. Here are the 4 best lip and cheek products, according to our staff—fight us by adding your review below.

"I really like Bite Beauty's Multistick in Almond! OMG wtf I can't find it on their website anymore...did they discontinue it??????? (editor's note: they did) It was my favorite though.
It's just a warm brown that has a bit of red to it. I feel like a lot of nude brown colors are that kind of mauve-y pink, especially ones that are meant to go on your cheek and eyes as well, but this one had a brick tone to it that was really nice and suited my lips more."
"I like using Bite's Multistick. It blends beautifully into my cheek for a monochromatic look and It's really hydrating."
Anthoni, Brand Partnerships:
"I love Undone Beauty in berry! I love that it has three formulas in one because I can make my lips pop and then match my cheeks without over-doing it."

I use the Milk Makeup Lip and Cheek Tint, in Quickie a lot, but I also love Undone Beauty's in Blazen, the redder one. Let me look in my makeup pile...I also use lipstick as blush sometimes, my mom did that when I was little, it's like an old lady trick."
This one is my personal favorite, but I've also grown to love RMS Beauty's Signature Set, a small palette that includes highlighter and a few lip2cheek shades. More on that later.
"I like RMs Beauty Lip2cheek. In general I love that RMS is cruelty free and uses safe and non irritating ingredients. It's lightweight and gives my cheeks a really nice glow...it's like a highlighter and blush in one, and I don't like very pigmented lip colors usually and this is just a light stain on the lips which is nice."
