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.

Maybe would have liked if it was a lighter color and matched my skin tone better

difficult to apply on cheeks
Sampled

This product is an okay lip stain however it is very difficult to apply on the cheeks since you have to be very quick to rub on the cheeks before it dries up on the cheeks. If you don't rub this on appropriately it is easy to tell where the product was applied.

No, thank you...

This product applies nicely & has a gorgeous consistency in the beginning, but that starts to transform as it dries, becoming uncomfortable & clumpy. In addition, I find the scent and taste of this product to be quite disagreeable. As is its effect, as the stain is far from long-lasting. Not recommended.

This isn't really a "use anywhere on your face"item. I use it on my lips as a lip stain and even with a light gloss it made my lips burn and hurt for 2 days. As a blush it's ok but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone :-(

Awful

I hate lip stain because it makes me look like I just ate a popsicle. It was a horrible color and I wouldn't ever purchase it.. maybe if the color would have been lighter I wouldn't have hated it so bad.

Watery

This is watery and messy and the pigment seems like you have to keep layering on food dye tinted water. I wouldn't even attempt to put it on my cheeks.

Not the best
Sampled

Product felt like jello or slime on my lips and did not give much color. I even tried layering on a few applications and could not get a good color.

Once I tried and did not like on my lips, I did not try on my cheeks.
