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. 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.

Not for me

I do not wear dark colors on my lips. I usually only wear lip gloss, so I'm not sure why I even received it in my box.

This product didn't work for me. It was greasy messy and hard to blend. I really like the balm but this product was not good for me. I was disappointed because of how much I love the check and lip palate how about them apples from the balm. I would spring for that instead of this product

Stained everything!!!!!

I will say this, it was a great color. Problem was it not only stained your checks, it stained your fingers. Who wants or has time to wash their hands after putting that on in the morning??

Streaky, sticky mess
Sampled

If you want a veey heavy stain, this might work for you but one layer will leave lips streaky and unfortunately this stain goes on gummy and takes a few minutes to sink in and set. You have to apply a couple laters to get even coverage and by then your pout will be as dark as the tube. Hope you like the end result because it will be there for a long time.

Staniac lip stain

Texture is initially like water and then turns sticky.

No, just no. This tastes terrible on my lips and the texture is too light to stay in place. When I blend it on my cheeks it feels sticky and the color fades to invisible. Not a fan. I prefer blush and lip balm to be separate.

I can't use products on my face as it causes me to break out.

This stuff is so sticky, I have no idea why anyone would want to put this on their lips, let alone their cheeks!

This product is ok. I feel like you need a lot for it to really show up on your cheeks.
