So what are we talking about here? Why in the world would you want to stain your lips and cheeks? Ok, I can see putting blush on the cheeks and lipstick, lip crayon, or lip balm on the lips but stain? You stain furniture you know like desks, chairs, and cabinets. This is to beautify the wood and preserve it. Especially, if it will sit outside in the cold, hot and other seasons that transpire during the year. The stain will protect it against the harsh environmental elements. Or you stain your front deck (if you have one) or the back deck. You know you stain the wood to cover cracks or pores in the wood. It makes the wood look more natural and protects it against snow, rain and other forms of moisture. But you do not stain your lips and cheeks. People are not pieces of furniture, are they?
