Birchbox Breakdown

You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. Our motto: Why use two products when you can get the same effect with one? This two-in-one lip and cheek stain gives us a natural, understated flush and helps us get out the door faster. The gel formula looks dark in the tube but delivers a sheer tint. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink, Prom Queen is a lovely rose pink, and Homecoming Queen is a dewy peach.

How it Works

The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

How to Use

The handy wand makes applying this stain a breeze. Swipe onto your lips as you would a regular lip gloss. To use as a cheek stain, smile and dab two or three dots onto the apples of your cheeks. Gently blend the pigment into your cheeks using small circular motions.

Not cool
Sampled

Not a fan of this stain. Dried my lips out, and it made my lips feel crusty and unattractive. Applying it felt weird as well.

Good in a rush

I liked this product for giving me some color on the go, but the texture is something I never really liked with stains. It is a nice color though.

Love it!

I love a great lip stain, and this is it! Nice and smooth. I was worried about the color, but, as advertised, it went on nice and light! Great for summer!

Very impressed!

TheBalm stainiac is quite a handy thing to have-a two in one. It's perfect item to stick in your purse in case of an emergency. It only gives a slight pop of color, and doesn't smear off easily. I really enjoyed it, since I'm not a big lipstick wearer or reapplier, I definitely like lip products that last and are nortishing.

not for me
Sampled

I don't understand to purpose of this product. It's like putting some type of jelly on your face and lips without any color. I'm not Sure if it is supposed to be a lip stain but it has no color

A wearable bright pink
Sampled

This is a really lovely, bright pink that gains more depth as you layer it on; I've been using it under my favorite light pink lip gloss, which tones down the brightness just enough while providing the perfect amount of moisture, or alone under Chapstick.

LOVE THE BALM!

I really love this product. The color is perfect. I always want color on my lips, but have a problem with the way lipstick feels on my lips. I can put the balm on and forget about it!
