We're all for products that can simplify our makeup routines, and lip and cheek tints are definitely on top of that list. Rosy cheeks and just-bitten lips in a few swipes? It's no wonder so many Filipinas swear by it. In fact, local makeup brands carry some of the best multi-use stains that we've tried! Below, we list five of our favorites that you should check out as well:
1. EB Advance Lip and Cheek Stain
It's hard to beat a classic, let alone one as affordable and effective as EB Advance's original lip and cheek stain. This squeeze tube has been a staple in many Filipinas' makeup bags for years, well-loved for its blendability and staying power. The gel texture feels lightweight and refreshing on the skin, too, providing a satin finish that'll give you a natural glow.

2. Vice Cosmetics Water Gel Lip & Cheek Tint
Vice Cosmetics' first attempt at a multi-use stain was an instant hit. It ticked all the boxes for a product you'll want to use every day—it's pigmented, blendable, and comes in flattering shades. Perhaps what we love the most about it though is how it never applies patchy and fades gracefully throughout the day.

3. Blk Creamy All-Over Paint
If water-based tints are too sheer for you, try blk's Creamy All-Over Paints for a pigmented yet natural-looking flush. Its liquid, almost mousse-like texture also allows it to be used as a lip color and eyeshadow, which won't be difficult to do thanks to the chubby doe foot applicator.

4. Colourette Colourtint - Fresh
Whether you're a makeup newbie or a long-time tint enthusiast, there's no reason for you not to love Colourette's internet-famous Colourtints. The Fresh variant in particular is a favorite for being buildable and long-lasting, not to mention it comes in more than 10 shades that range from reds, muaves, to bright orange. It's not your average watery tint either—it's infused with a dash of argan oil for a smoother blend.

5. Generation Happy Skin Kiss & Bloom Water Lip & Cheek Tint
Kathryn Bernardo swears by lip and cheek tints for an instant glow, and her makeup collaboration with Happy Skin has some of the more flattering water tints out there. They have this unique watercolor-like feel that allows the product to be sheer yet buildable enough to become a full lip color without looking patchy. Despite being a tint, it's still easy to take off with a water-based makeup remover at the end of the day.
