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 love this product. The stain lasts hours. I do find myself needing a little extra moisture over the top, even if it's just chap stick, to keep my lips from drying out.5
I purchased this product in the full-size after receiving a sample. It gives the perfect, sheer, natural flushed color that literally feels like you have nothing on your lips.5
The color that I got in my Birchbox as a sample was too red. It was like cherry poppin' red. Made my lips look like they were bleeding. I didn't like how it felt and it was hard to take off. But then again, I'm not used to using lip stains.2
This was my first time using a stain so I do not really have a comparison but since I have tried it I have been using it every day. I have very pale thin lips and this products make me feel more noticeable and less muted.4
Although the concept is nice, the sample color is wrong for me- too light pink. The texture and scent is pleasant. The sample size is good. I will consider purchasing this product in a darker color.1
I love red/berry lip colors but unfortunately not all shades look great on me. This stain is great because I can layer the color to get the exact shade that works for me!5
This product works so well! Love the color! It stays on for a long time and is easy to apply. Very satisfied.5
This was a beautiful stain. It lasted all day, and was a lovely color. As always the Balm got it right. This stain was a fantastic formula to!4
I got a sample of this and loved it so much I bought the full-size. The texture is more like a gel than a gloss and when you put it on it gets absorbed into the skin. You can put on as much or as little as you like for darker or lighter color and it lasts for a while (3-4 hours) as a lip stain or all day as cheek stain.5
I really love this product. I used it all. I love how easy it is to apply, it goes on sheer but you can definetly pack it on for a more intense color. the consistency is more of gel which makes it easier to apply and work with than the liquid tints.5
