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.

Popsicle Stain

Someone else worded it perfectly...this lip stain definitely looks like you just ate a popsicle. I didn't think it was sticky as some other people mentioned but I definitely did not like this product. I tried to wear it for a day and it wore out more quickly where my lips meet as compared to the rest of my lips so it became uneven quite quickly. Tried it again another day with a lighter coat and the same thing happened. Thankfully it did not stain my teeth too. I did not try it on my cheeks as is suggested.

not my thing

it could justs be me but i didn't like the lip stain. i have super chapped lips and it highlighted all of the flaky pieces and i didn't like how it makes my lip line seem uneven. feels sticky even when it's dry.

Its ok

It doesn't stay on. Too watery. It stains but it doesn't do the job. Plus I feel like I would have to use the whole bottle to see a difference. Then it becomes sticky.

difficult to apply on cheeks
Sampled

This product is an okay lip stain however it is very difficult to apply on the cheeks since you have to be very quick to rub on the cheeks before it dries up on the cheeks. If you don't rub this on appropriately it is easy to tell where the product was applied.

This product applies nicely & has a gorgeous consistency in the beginning, but that starts to transform as it dries, becoming uncomfortable & clumpy. In addition, I find the scent and taste of this product to be quite disagreeable. As is its effect, as the stain is far from long-lasting. Not recommended.

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.
