This stuff is awesome but takes a minute to learn how to apply it evenly. This is a gel like formula and it is a stain, perfect for cheeks AND lips. It doesn’t take a whole lot to create the rosy cheek look you desire. There is no shimmer and looks fabulous over a B.B. cream!

This product is a water-based stain, intended for use on lips and cheeks. I mostly use it on my lips, but I have tried it on my cheeks as well. It is sheer pink, and easy to work with because it doesn't stain as instantly as some other stains. You have some time to move it around. It doesn't stain as long as some I've used, but for the color, usability, and affordability I like it very much. The only reason I took a star away is because it's just not very long-lasting on me.
this product gives you a lot of bang for your buck for sure! it’s my absolute favorite right now! perfect for every day looks and is overall a really really great product! i️ would definitely buy agin and recommend to others! a good “tinted balm”
This is the perfect tint for summer and I wear it all throughout. It’s too much for my complexion during the colder months and I don’t use it on my cheeks but I like that it’s an option.
this is a really cool product! I’ve never used it on my cheeks as a blush, but I really liked it as a lip stain. It feels like nothing is on your lips, which is great if you hate the sticky feel of gloss or dry feel of matte lip creams. It has stay all day type of power too!
So I got this product in my February Mystery Birchbox, and when I pulled it out, I thought it had dried up or something because half of the tube's worth of product was gone; but when I pulled the wand out the product filled the empty space so I felt better. Overall, this is a good product. I have the shade Beauty Queen which looks like it'd be a blood red, but it's actually a dark pink. It isn't sticky or anything, it dries quickly, and the smell isn't overbearing. You do have to go over it a couple times if you really want good color pay-off.
Great all in one lip and cheek stain. I have tried other brands and always find myself coming back to theBalm. Such a perfect and universally flattering shade. I only gave it one star because it takes some practice to use it as a cheek stain without smearing a streak on your face as it is fast drying. I found dabbing with a damp Beauty Blender works best! I do wish it lasted a bit longer. Worth every penny - a little goes a long way.
I received this lip stain in one of my beauty subscription boxes and I absolutely looove it. I do not like lipstick because it always comes off after a few minutes. Lip stain is the perfect solution to this problem. I love this stuff, makes my lips have a natural looking color that stays most of the day.
Q & A
Do you use stains more for your lips or cheeks?
Does this look horrible if you have somewhat dry lips? I tend to get a lot of creasing with other products
Does this feel gross on your cheeks because it's a gel? Does it work good on your lips too?
I’m deciding which colors should be on my little makeup bag ,from left down, to right down this are the colors 1 theBalm Stainiac Tinted Gel Blush, 2 ULTA Lip Gloss Stain color treason, 3 and 4 Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo in tangerine and lingonberry, 5 makeup forever, 6 Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita, 7 Kat von D lipstick in Berlin
Has anyone tried this with lip primer? Is it only me or does this rub off easily ?
