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. 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.
I'm relatively petite, and the size of this product was equivalent to my index finger... That's pretty tiny. Also, I didn't like the consistency and once it's applied onto the lips, it feels sticky and tacky. It doesn't feel smooth when applied and when its dried. Although, I have a tendency of licking my lips and when I do, the tackiness reduced.2
I was excited about this product but it fell short for me. It wasn't so much a stain as a gloss. It smells and tastes fine but doesn't have any lasting color or impact.2
I thought I would really enjoy this product but it did nothing for my lips. You couldn't even tell I had it on and I applied a generous amount. Maybe it worked for others and just not me.2
Very disappointed. I was so excited when I opened I got this sample. I love lip gloss and the bright red color was amazing. But, then I used the product and it was a flop. It just stained by lips a red color like I drank a glass of Kool Aid. However, on the bright side, BirchBox recommended using the Balm as "blush" for your cheeks, which works awesome. That is how I have been using the sample. I really do like the red/rosy cheek color. Would be buy for lips, but a good natural rosy cheek blush look.2
I suppose this is great for a light pinkish hue to a non makeup look. It came off my lips so quickly but gave my cheeks a tint a just been in the cold red. I am not a big fan2
I recieved two lip and cheek stains in my box from different brands and I dont even like them. The quality wasnt that good, it didnt blend and it just stayed in the same spot as I applied it2
I like the one by the brand benifit better this one wears off really fast2
The color was a bit too dark for my liking, but the product worked well enough. The texture is a little different than the usual lip stain.2
It is slightly sticky and is more like a watery lip gloss than a lip stain. Def. does not stick. Comes right off!2
I gave it a shot. But I have very dark lips and very pale skin. The stain doesn't really show up on my lips, except in the lines if I skip lip balm. And I just can't blend it fast enough to look natural on my cheeks. On the up side, the smell and texture are better than other stains I've tried.2
