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.

Didn't really care for this product. To liquidity and the color is a little off. Great for teenagers who want a little subtle color though.

I was not a fan of this lip stain. It doesn't go on very even and it is a more sheer color than a deep red. Some areas of the lips will be dark while other barely have any color at all. It may work better on the cheeks as a blush but I don't like using liquid blushes so I'm not sure.

I love lip stains, gloss etc. I love the color I received but this stuff dries my lips out something horrible.

I hated the way this made my lips feel. Very dry and uncomfortable. I received the color beauty queen thinking it'd be a nice red and it did absolutely NOTHING. No color payoff what so ever. Very disappointed. I am a fan of lip stains, and I know that most are drying, but this one was just way too drying.

I did not like this product at all. I tried it as a cheek stain and could not work it into my skin it kind of just stained where it was placed and didn't work itself in. Second, I used this as a lip stain and my lips were stained for multiple days. I will not be purchasing again.

The color look nice in the container, but it looks different when you apply it, it does not taste good either.
