theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. 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, lasting tint on lips and cheeks. It has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, so it won’t leave unsightly streaks after you blend.

Stains lips and stays off teeth
Sampled

I find it so hard to find a lip stain that actually stains your lips and looks more natural. I love this! I have been using it now for over a year after getting it in my first birch box. It also lasts forever! I use mine almost every day (if not twice a day) and I still have half left after two months. I have issues where other lip stains are heavy and then it gets on my teeth. This one absorbs into my lips and lasts for about 1-2 hours per application.

This stuff is so simple and cool - it's the perfect amount of color for me and takes less than 2 seconds to apply.

Beauty Queen
Sampled

Got this as a sample and there's nothing special about it. The brand is great and I wanted to like it but even after several layers, the color barely shows up on the lips and I hate the sticky feeling of applying it to my cheeks.

great lip stain
Purchased

I absolutely love this lip stain! Beauty queen is a prefect shade for a natural looking beautiful pink lip. Just the right amount of color that lasts for hours.

Loved it!
Sampled

I really liked the texture of it, very different than most lip stains. It didn't seem to stain for quite as long as a traditional stain does, though.

Just enough color
Sampled

I'm always apprehensive about lip stains because they tend to be bright, and then I can never get it off! I dabbed a few dots on my lips and then smudged in- and it was perfect! This would definitely last a long time and had great color.

Cheeks more than lips
Sampled

I liked this product more on my cheeks than on my lips. It felt too dry on my lips but gave my cheeks a nice and natural blush.

It's okay
Sampled

This product isn't terrible, but it's not great either. It doesn't have a "wow" factor and pigmentation is okay at best. Very small size

Nice product, not too red. Very natural, adding a pleasant color.
