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 lip stain didn't do much to change my lip color and it made my lips feel dry.

Not great lip stain
Sampled

This lip stain was not effective. There was no color on my lips after applying. I wouldn't use this again.

Didn't like too much
Sampled

The consistency of this product applies very unevenly. I noticed that you had to apply multiple layers to get even coverage and it was to thick in some areas due to multiple application. I don't think I would purchase a full size in this product.

It's okay
Sampled

The color looks nice on lips but doesn't last long at all. I don't really like the gel consistency either. Didn't bother to try it on my cheeks because I was scared it would cause pimples.

doesn't pack a punch
Sampled

I thought there would be more color from this product--and lasting color. But I was disappointed. Cannot tell I even have it on.

Lip Stain

When applied to my lips the color turned into a rosy shade. However, the stain did not last long. I will admit, I did not like the feel of the stain on my cheeks. It felt sticky on my skin.

Nothing great
Sampled

I was excited about trying this product when receiving it. I have tried it about three times and have yet to see my lips look and different. It does not stay on and it is sticky so I will not be trying it on my face. Wouldn't recommend this product

Texture
Sampled

I did not like the texture of this product. It feels really sticky. Also, there is hardly any color at all. I couldn't tell at all on my lips. It also tasted funny to me. I realize that everyone has different taste buds so that might not be true for everyone.

Just ok...
Sampled

Not a big fan of this product. The smell was unpleasant and left my lips feeling very sticky and uncomfortable. It did not blend well into my cheeks, either. The stain also felt like it was irritating my skin. Will not be purchasing.

artificial-looking shade
Sampled

The shade of this product was a little too fake for me. It did not blend well with my skin tone.
