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.

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

Not the bet stain out there

I don't know if it was just my particular sample, but I didn't feel like this stain did anything at all except make my lips feel/taste slightly off. I didn't notice any color...I'm wondering if my sample was old or dried up? Otherwise, it's just a drying lip stain that's not worth the money

The color was too intense and it made my lips feel dry. This product does not work for me.

Not an effective tint for me
Sampled

I typically do not use tints, but as this was a great time to try it I figured that I would give it a shot. I tried it on both checks and lips, but color did not show through on my skin tone

Did not like

I did not like the color I received and I also felt like it removed way too easily. It did not stain my lips. I was hoping for a longer lasting effect.
