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.

Great idea, not bold enough
Sampled

Loved the idea of a two in one, but was not a huge fan of the texture and did not notice much of a difference in my cheek coloring

Eh...

I was really excited about this... only to be disappointed. The texture of the product is like a gel, doesn't really work as a blush and I'm not a big stain lover

Not to Colorful
Sampled

Perhaps my lip color does not allow for a stain but I did not see a difference at all when using the product. I have not tried as a blush, I suffer from redness in my skin so I do nor feel this is a product for me. I would not mind trying a different color that would show up fr my skin tone.

No Luck

I want to like the lip stain samples that I get but they don't deliver. This one was sticky and it turned me off of using it further.

Not impressed
Sampled

I tried the lip stain and didn't care for it at all. I found the color too dark for everyday use, and much too dark for a cheek stain.

Weird smell & texture
Sampled

Smells like medicine & gel formula that doesn't stay smoothly on lips.

not a good "stain"
Sampled

I really love the texture of this stain, but it doesn't actually "stain" your lips. comes off after 1 cup of coffee.
