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.
Pretty lip stain. I like the color, but don't usually use a lip stain as my lips always seem to be chapped and so lip stains aren't usually great at coating them evenly.4
I'm keeping this lip stain sample in my purse for when I need a touch of color. I've learned it works best when I combine it with a tinted lip balm. The stain alone gives very subtle color, is slightly sticky, and doesn't moisturize, but when combined, it is just the right amount of glamor for work (I'd recommend a more pigmented stain for a night out). I probably won't buy it again because I like my products to be as easy as possible--in my opinion a single lip product should do it all (give color, moisturize, hold for ages, etc.).4
I like this stain. It's very subtle though so be prepared to layer it. I have naturally berry colored lips and this takes quite a few layers to look like it's on but once I've got the layers on it's great!4
It's in a cute packaging, but when applied it is a different feeling. It made my lips look like it was chapped. Would not recommend.2
I used this and it looked like my lips were naturally red because the liquid is so thin and light. I had to apply a lot on but soon it looked like I just ate a cherry frozen something or other. I applied red lipstick on top of that and it brought out the more red so I would recommend using it as a base, but not just wearing it by itself4
This lips stain is nice. I love the color I got. Just one application will give your lips enough color to make a natural lips look. If you add a few more it gets deeper but still looks softer that lipstick or lipgloss.5
This product has the right idea. I like staying power. But it is really hard to use. An applicator would help. It's got a lot of tint- but it got all over my teeth and would not come off. And I love lipstick! This was just a tough consistency and really too sticky.1
I am enjoying this sample. It adds a bit of color to my cheeks and lips without being over-powering!5
I know it's a stain but colour was almost didn't exist. But mostly it dried my lips so much they chapped.2
The balm stainiac works fine. The color is awful. I would not purchase this product.3
