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 a good lip gloss or stain, but after trying this product I was not impressed at all. It looks great and fun, but it left my lips sticky. The stain did not go on smoothly. I didn't try it on my cheeks, b/c I prefer a blush or bronzer. The sample size was good and appealing, but the product overall is not that great. I have lip stains that I prefer more.2
I overlooked the unfortunate color (purpley tints just make my PIH stand out) because I really dig the texture, sheerness, and application of this tint. It works well for my cheeks, but dried out really fast. At the end of the day I was left with a rim outside of my lips. Meh.4
I don't wear a lot of makeup on the weekends and this was perfect just to give my lips a little pop of color without using a dark lipstick.5
I've enjoyed the products from theBalm that I've received and this one was no exception!4
Used this a few times this week and love it! If you want you could likely use it on your cheeks too!5
Nice slight color. Not heavy on lips, and doesn't dry them out.3
Good concept, but something's not quite right. The texture is liquid-like, which makes it easy to apply. But then it lacks any creaminess or substance for staying power. It's great for a super fast dash of color on lips (quicker than lipstick for example), and therefore handy to carry in purse. But putting on cheeks takes more skill.3
I really loved the color but found that after a while it dried my lips out.3
For a stain, it's not too intense, and gives just a hint of color, on the lips or cheeks. I found if I wanted more color, I would apply a layer, let it dry, then apply another layer as needed.3
This is a flattering shade on all skin types. I like that you can build the intensity of the color by adding additional layers of product.3
