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.
This was not my favorite sample. It was ok, went on a little splotchy. I need to wear a base on my lips first before applying. I wouldn't purchase in the future3
I really liked this product. Worked great to add that touch of color to my lips - didn't necessarily last all day long though. Wish there was a stain that was pinkish but lasted all day long. I liked the applicator - easier than a 'brush' type and it really left a nice color.5
I absolutely love the Balm cosmetics in general, but this lip/cheek stain is one of their not so good products. I tried it multiple times, multiple ways and it's just not pigmented enough for me. The only way I saw the stain a little bit was when I put a lip liner on and the lip stain over it. Putting it on my cheeks felt weird. It was sticky and I just didn't like how it felt.2
This product is pretty cool for someone on the go, with little time for make up but wants to brighten their face up a little. It works GREAT as a liquid blush. Lasts pretty much through my work day. The color for the lips is very natural and gives a hint of color but doesn't last for than an hour. I like the product for not enough to buy it again.4
I really like the color of this stain. I'm not completely impressed with how it feels on my skin though. I do like to use it as a lip stain though.4
I used this primarily as a lip stain (I personally prefer powder, not stain, for blush). It felt a little sticky and drying, but had a vibrant color that lasted quite awhile.3
I LOVED THIS. cant wait to buy it! worked so well not sticky at all. i also used it with lipstick underneath and it actually stained that color to my lips as well! love it love it love it5
I like how it's a light pink that gives me the perfect amount of color without have if a lipstick on. Such a great lip stain5
I was hesitant because it looked dark in the tube, but when I used image stain it was beyond perfect. With long lasting wear and smudging it is the product for me!5
The packaging is cute and the taste is neutral. It doesn't dry my lips out which I love but I barely get any color.4
