Skin Genie Lip and Cheek stain in Tramp & Tan Brown

Okay, I'm going to be honest, I've never heard of this brand until Regina Belmonte (@vivatregina) mentioned it on her Instagram page. I mean if it was good enough for her, it's good enough for me! Her Tumblr post years ago was also the reason why I bought MAC Rebel. :3

I don't have much experience with lip tints, but I am still currently obsessed with the Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint — it's the only lip product that I have been using for the past few weeks! — so I was looking for a nice alternative since the brand isn't available locally.

The Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Tint (Php80/10ml) is an all-natural makeup gel that delivers gorgeous color on lips and cheeks. Yeeep, the price is EIGHTY FREAKING PESOS. Probably the cheapest lip product I've ever tried.


Tan Brown

Tramp is a pinky coral, which is usually a color I'm not too fond of. But this one looks super nice. Honestly, the shade is best described as cute (as in pabebe cute lol) hehe. I didn't think I'd like Tan Brown, but I ended up really, really loving that one. I don't often see brown colored lip tints, and the fact that they have one (a nice shade of brown, at that) was pretty cool.

The lip tints are housed in a glass bottle with a roller ball as the applicator. Not the best packaging for a very runny lip tint, but I can overlook it since the price is super cheap! I've read a review that said that the packaging is leak-proof, but it's most definitely not. While taking photos for this post, both  shades had spilled on me, so be careful when storing it.

It smells exactly like a melon candy I used to eat when I was a kid, which was a pleasant surprise. You know I hate fragrance on makeup, but the smell doesn't linger, so I was fine with it. 

The tints leave a bit of oily residue on my lips when first applied, and yes, it bothers me a little. But I just pat a tissue (or my fingers) over my lips, and it's fine afterwards. It dries down to a matte finish, and stays on for hours.

I'm getting Creamy Peach, Merlot & Burgundy Wine next. P80 lang guys, P80!!!


I was going to buy it online, but I found out that they have a stall in Pop Culture, Trinoma! It's adjacent Chedelyn's Cosmetics stall. :)

You could also find them online: Skin Genie's Facebook, Instagram.



  1. I bought the Tan and the black one, I think it's called Villain. Loveee Tan and idk why I bought a black lipstain haha. I personally don't like the melon smell (and I have a paranoid feeling they used a food grade melon extract haha, which isn't bad but I'm just iffy with).

    I wish I knew I could buy them at Pop culture earlier so di sayang ung SF, but now I know, planning to get the orange one.
