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 isn't really a "use anywhere on your face"item. I use it on my lips as a lip stain and even with a light gloss it made my lips burn and hurt for 2 days. As a blush it's ok but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone :-(

Awful

I hate lip stain because it makes me look like I just ate a popsicle. It was a horrible color and I wouldn't ever purchase it.. maybe if the color would have been lighter I wouldn't have hated it so bad.

Watery

This is watery and messy and the pigment seems like you have to keep layering on food dye tinted water. I wouldn't even attempt to put it on my cheeks.

This is a strange product. Color is not great and it seems like it doesn't have any benefit

Not the best
Sampled

Product felt like jello or slime on my lips and did not give much color. I even tried layering on a few applications and could not get a good color.

Once I tried and did not like on my lips, I did not try on my cheeks.

did not like this at all
Sampled

product looks pretty but did not feel good upon applying. I love lipsticks and moisture but his product, although had a nice color, it made my lips almost stick together, super dry and "weird" feeling... I would not want to kiss anyone wearing that lip stain! I didn't try it on my cheeks.
