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.

Too watery it runs and leaves lips streaked and uneven

I really liked the Instain blush from theBalm so I was excited to get another cheek product form them, but this one was very disappointing. I think I'm just not a fan of things that are multifunctional.

I just don't get it.

Maybe this product works for someone with different coloring than myself.
I didn't really notice any pigment after applying and didn't like the wet feel of it.
Oh well.

I never got to try the product because I found it dried and solid in the tube. I wouldn't recommend it.

Way to dark for lips or blush. Love the brand but don't want this product again.

Slides right off

This slides right off my lips and skin. I tried to apply it every possible way, but it doesn't stain at all and has worse staying power than a regular lipgloss or blush. Not going to waste money on this.

Will appreciate more natural and neutrals for my lip product colors. This was too bright for me

Not too sure if I like this. When I was younger, I thought god if I could just stain my lips the color I use all the time I would never have to buy it again lol this was after my color was altered and I no longer liked it .when I got this I was like yes ! Stain! But your lips feel like you are a popsicle and look like you ate one too. Tight and sticky and hard to get off and looks like I ate a red popsicle . Need chapstick to put over it. Not worth it.
