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.

Caused my face to breakout, but that's my issue, not the products. Tried on the cheeks and was hard pressed to even see evidence of said stain. Boo. I tried, though.

It was okay
Sampled

I didn't love the color or effectiveness of this product. I'd rather use a good blush or a lip color o enjoy rather than this

I do not recommend
Sampled

It barely stains your lips, feels too sticky when after it is applied on and leaves a unpleasant taste on your lips after it dries.

Not my favorite. I'm not really even sure what it does. I put it on and what I think is supposed to be tinted is nothing. The texture is weird.

Does not spread well

This is my second time receiving this product in a birch box and both times I have found that it is sticky on my cheeks as blush and is spotty and does not spread well on my lips.

Not for me

I just didn't like this stuff at all. I don't really like mixed products like this for ex. (lip and cheek tint) no just keep it one or the other. This isn't good for either however in my opinion. Its more clear than anything with little to no tint.

I love The Balm but their stains are nothing that I like. I don't like the consistency or the payoff
