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.
Love it long lasting easy to put on will not smudge wish it it came with more product I will be buying in the future in trying the different colors well worth it the best out there so far I wish they offered more colors but very good product five staryou will never go back to old product after using this product guaranteed tried other products all jelly smudgy this product is perfect and he will not be dissatisfied5
Color and texture is nice. I'm not a huge stain user but I've used it a couple times since receiving it and it's fun!3
I like the color I received. It was pretty alone and over lipstick colors I already own. The color does stay however when used alone it dries my lips. I used a chapstick over it and that did the trick. I love this brand of makeup and look forward to experiencing other products they make.4
So I'm not a huge fan of The Balm's other products but I will say this one surprised me. I am super fair so I didn't end up keeping this but I swatched it and then gifted to a friend who it looks gorgeous on. Decent texture and the color is a somewhat sheer pink on her tan skin tone so it's a perfect complement to a sun kissed look.4
Lip stain just terrifies me. I'm not an advanced makeup artist, so I really wasn't please because I don't have the skill set. I'm sure it's super if you can do it accurately. It was fun to try. Gonna try my cheeks next :)3
It seems like a good color and product. It wasn't as dark as I'd hoped though from the bottle. Also faded pretty quickly.4
I'm not much of a lipstick person so that is the only reason for the three stars. I did try it just to try it and it was a little too bright for me but it did stay on for quite a while .3
A little too bright for my taste, won't be using it.2
Perfect color. Glides on smoothly. Very very impressed5
With the word "stain" in the title, I had high hopes that this would be a long lasting color. Applied around 9am and was, for the most part, gone by noon. Also, this is the 2nd time I have received this sample in my Birchbox!! I hate getting duplicates3
