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.

This stain was blah. It did not work as a blush it was patchy and didn't blend. As a lip stain it was surprisingly drying.

Sticky mess
Sampled

Not a fan of the consistency. Very sticky. It did give a nice wash of color to my lips but the stickiness was to much for me.

Barely there

My friend got this product and I liked the way it looked on her so I thought I would buy it. Not only does it look slightly hot pink on me....but you can barely see it. I would have to layer it many times to see an effect. Not a fan unfortunately because I really wanted to like it.

Love the brand but this product did not work for me at all! Applied four coats to my lips before giving up hope. The cheeks didn't go any better.

Good brand but hated color that was sent to me. Maybe better in a neutral.

not thrilled

This was disappointing. It didn't go on evenly and made my lips peel. Dry..uneven color and it doesn't stay on for long. I ended up throwing it out.
