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.

I just don't like it
Sampled

I've tried to like this cult favorite but it's just not for me. It makes my lips feel dry and I don't care for it on my cheeks. It's too dark for me.

I didn't like the way this stain felt on my lips. It also did not last long at all. I expect a stain to last longer than this! Not worth the money for me.

Not worth it

I am not a can of lip tints and the main reason its because they just simply don't work for me. I tried this one twice and still it hardly did anything for me. My lips were slightly more pinkish but only for about an hour.

This is a product I would only use on my lips. I have other lip products I would much rather grab for before a lip stain. Also to difficult to use on cheeks for me.

Wrong color for me
Sampled

I like the idea of a stain but haven't found one in a color appropriate for my features- I can't wear bold lip colors.

Horrible on my lips
Sampled

This did not give me the effect I was hoping...it looked like I had a red Popsicle. Icky!

Dries out the lips for not much color.

You have to apply this rather intensely to see any color. When I do it leaves my lips very dry and looking like I ate a kids' sucker. You need to put balm or gloss over it to be comfortable, and with so many other products out there that give you color, staying power, and moisture--why bother?

Wouldn't call this a stain

I was really excited when I received this product, for I've been searching for a good lip stain. The color looked perfect...until I put it on. It barely added any color, and because it was super liquidy, it barely lasted an hour.

No thanks

I did not really like this product. The color was not for me and I don't really like the stain. I'm more of a gloss girl. I might have like it if I had a more natural shade.
