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 actually really like lip stains.
Took me awhile to warm up to them but I like them now, however I do not like this one at all.
You have to apply quite a bit for there to be even a hint of color, the texture is off, it takes awhile to dry and then it's sticky... No good for me.
Lip stain can be fading at times. And too messy. Not this one from the Balm! Color does not 'slide' off. Stays in place with a 'soft' effect. Great for daytime and added an extra layer at night! Moisturizing without a glossy look! Like this stain!5
I have no idea why this product was included. It would be great for 5 year old, but not adults. Very disappointing.1
I was intrigued by this product because the color looks so red in the tube, but it goes on really sheer and natural looking. I used it as the cheek tint and the lip tint and it lasted really well throughout the day.5
I felt this was just so so, I didn't think the texture blended well on the cheeks, and I found that after adding it, regular blush looked more natural.4
I am not much of a fan of lip stains. In 3 months, two of the boxes have had them.2
I absolutely LOVED this stain. It looks natural but adds a little color and it really lasts. The best part is that it does not bleed, as many other lip products I have used tend to do. You can add just a hint of color or build it by adding more. Definitely something I intend to purchase in the future!5
Didn't feel this was anything special. Very light color and almost made your lips feel dry.3

The stain leaves a light color. The texture is a little sticky. Didn't love it.4
