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.

If you want a veey heavy stain, this might work for you but one layer will leave lips streaky and unfortunately this stain goes on gummy and takes a few minutes to sink in and set. You have to apply a couple laters to get even coverage and by then your pout will be as dark as the tube. Hope you like the end result because it will be there for a long time.

Texture is initially like water and then turns sticky.

No, just no. This tastes terrible on my lips and the texture is too light to stay in place. When I blend it on my cheeks it feels sticky and the color fades to invisible. Not a fan. I prefer blush and lip balm to be separate.

I can't use products on my face as it causes me to break out.

This stuff is so sticky, I have no idea why anyone would want to put this on their lips, let alone their cheeks!

This product is ok. I feel like you need a lot for it to really show up on your cheeks.

I personally didn't care for this lip stain. It didn't go on smoothly or clearly. I prefer more of a lipstick rather than a stain.

Maybe I'm not use to lip stains. It was weird and couldn't really tell I was wearing anything. It felt weird once it dried.

The color was gorgeous but it felt weird going on and had a funky taste. I shouldn't taste my lip products as they go on. Not a fan.
