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.

Sticky and tastes weird.

I found this stain sticky, drying, and weird tasting. I'm not big into stains generally, and this one was no exception.

Not for me

I do not wear dark colors on my lips. I usually only wear lip gloss, so I'm not sure why I even received it in my box.

This product didn't work for me. It was greasy messy and hard to blend. I really like the balm but this product was not good for me. I was disappointed because of how much I love the check and lip palate how about them apples from the balm. I would spring for that instead of this product

Stained everything!!!!!

I will say this, it was a great color. Problem was it not only stained your checks, it stained your fingers. Who wants or has time to wash their hands after putting that on in the morning??

Streaky, sticky mess
Sampled

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.

Staniac lip stain

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.
