can this lip/ cheek combo withstand the test of time?

Putting on makeup is always a delicate balance. You don't want it to totally fade by the time you get to the party; but at the same time, you don't want to look like an overeager beauty pageant contestant, either.

Thanks to the Australian beauty brand Becca, we don't have to choose between looking washed out or overdone. The company's Beach Tints are a two-in-one blush and lip stain combo that stay on all day, thanks to their water-resistant and Vitamin E-based formula. Plus, they come in subtly scented shades like "Grapefruit," "Strawberry," and "Watermelon," that can be layered under bronzer or lip gloss to make them really pop.

And although we can't vouch for it on the actual beach, the colors did last all day-and most of the night- and that's really saying something.
