Can You Use Glossier Cloud Paints On Your Lips? The Blush Is Buildable & Versatile

According to the brand itself, Glossier's Cloud Paint blush is a "pillowy, gel-cream formula is designed to be the most user-friendly cheek color in existence." Ahhh! Sounds amaze, right? The product is meant to be applied with fingers and is buildable, so you can go with a light veil of color or add more for a more intense, "I just made out with my crush in public" flush. The Cloud Paints, which debuted at the 2017 Oscars, courtesy of Chrissy Teigen and Taraji P. Henson, give you that flushed, lit-from-within glow. They were designed for the cheeks. But can you use the Cloud Paints, which come in four NYC sunset-inspired shades, on your lips, like a stain?

While the Cloud Paints were not formulated for that purpose, I've seen makeup mavens use Kylie Lip Kit matte liquid lippies as eyeliner. Yes, really. Therefore, anything is possible and the Cloud Paint colors and textures avail themselves for this multi-use hack.

The Glossier Cloud Paints could add a sweet dose of sheer or stain-like color to your pout. They are packaged in squeeze tubes and in five colors for $18 a piece! You could easily dab and blend a dot on your pout.

The Cloud Paints — even the name is dreamy AF— are available at the Glossier site, which is the brand's sole sales platform.

Sunset inspo!

Here's Puff IRL and on cheeks. Since a lip stain or lip flush needn't be super precise or perfectly lined, like a statement, mega matte pout, you legit could dot, dab, blend, and go with Cloud Paints on your lips. You wouldn't even need a mirror. Try it!

Matching lips and cheeks are totally fine, so let the Cloud Paint multi-task.

It would be so fun to play with Beam and add it to lips, along with or instead of cheeks.

The beauty of Glossier products is their minimalism. That, plus the inventiveness of makeup artists, means that you can totally turn the Cloud Paints into lip color.

All you need is your fingers and a little imagination!
