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.

Not impressed

I just didn't like this product. I tried it and loved the color and I loved that it didn't smell bad or had a bad taste like some stains but it didn't really stain my lips that much and wore off quickly. I would have loved for the stain to be stronger and last longer it could have been my everyday lip especially that cool red tone I received. Overall my feelings towards this product : meh.

Stain didn't last....

I was very excited about this product, but when I put some of the stain on my lips it seemed to barely color them and didn't last long at all.

Not a good formula for me
Sampled

So I was excited to try this out but when I opened it all I could think of are those cheap little lip glosses that your parents get you when your 6. It was a very watery consistency and when I put it on barley stained my lips. Did not see any results on my cheeks unless I applied a ton and even then it was too red, and splotchy.

Not as good as I expected

Color not very even and definitely could not be the only product used you would need a gloss on top for both shine and color. Not impressed and would not purchase

I generally love products that can be used on the lips, but I am just not a fan of stains. I don't like the 'just ate berries' look. This stain is too dark and not even close to a color I would buy myself. I tried the product once and will never try it again. If you really like stains, you might like this product.

Lip stain

Thought the shade was too dark. Thought it was different you can use on your cheeks as well. Little too running

It's okay...

Product a bit too like a lip gloss shine for my taste. There was not a wow factor for me or a real step up from the products I use now.
