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.
Decent execution. However, the color felt a bit teenage to me.4
The color was dramatic for my taste. But it was effective. Not used to the gel consistancy3
I wasn't a fan of the color or the smell, I don't think it's something I'd wear and it's not much different than any other lip stain.3
I wasn't sure if I would like this product but after trying once I have loved it and use it daily. I also really like that I only have to use a small amount. I will be purchasing this item.5
Just the right color for me and very long lasting.5
I was surprised that I actually like this stain. When I opened my box, I thought "Great, another bright red lip product..." but I was pleasantly surprised that this gives my lips just a hint of color.4
I love theBalm but this product wasn't that great, didn't really enjoy it tried it once and never touched it again. It's very light and hard to apply .3
Love the color and the consistency, use the stain all the time! I would defiantly consider repurchasing!5
My first impression of this was very positive. It gives a great, natural flush to the lips (even my fiancé had a positive opinion). At least on me (I have fair skin and light lips), it's similar to what blush is meant to do - just a nice wash of color that makes me look bright and healthy. That said, it fades in about an hour and it's not the kind of product I like to take on the go (I blend it with my finger for the most even color and then obviously have to wash it off my hands). I also tried it as a blush, as Birchbox recommended, and it would be a nice color there as well, but I could not get it to blend evenly. I'll continue to use the sample, but I'm not sure I'll purchase it in the future unless they update the formula.4
I love this product. I mix it with some moisturizer and am good to go. You can layer it for a darker color.3
