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.

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
Sampled

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.

Popsicle Stain
Sampled

Someone else worded it perfectly...this lip stain definitely looks like you just ate a popsicle. I didn't think it was sticky as some other people mentioned but I definitely did not like this product. I tried to wear it for a day and it wore out more quickly where my lips meet as compared to the rest of my lips so it became uneven quite quickly. Tried it again another day with a lighter coat and the same thing happened. Thankfully it did not stain my teeth too. I did not try it on my cheeks as is suggested.

not my thing

it could justs be me but i didn't like the lip stain. i have super chapped lips and it highlighted all of the flaky pieces and i didn't like how it makes my lip line seem uneven. feels sticky even when it's dry.

Its ok

It doesn't stay on. Too watery. It stains but it doesn't do the job. Plus I feel like I would have to use the whole bottle to see a difference. Then it becomes sticky.
