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.

Too dark

I'm not a fan of the color. I like nude lips and stay away from dark colors.

wayyy too sheer. Didn't stay on. Couldn't see the color on the lips and when you blend it out on the cheeks it pretty much disappears

Hate lipgloss and hate red, and it melted in mail due to heat and was all nasty when got it, something seperated in tube, so like it was red on top and clear liquid on bottom, so It wasn't even lipgloss anymore

Very strange

This was a very weird texture. Went on almost incompletely. I had to really try to get full coverage.

I was really curious about what this product would do for me since I have never used a lip stain but I have been interested in the for some time now. I was very disappointed because I applied it to my lips and honestly could not see any color change. I was hoping for a somewhat redder lip even if it was just a little but nothing and I do not have dark colored lips. It also dried out very fast and if I could see it I am sure I probably would have to constantly keep applying it.

Not pigmented enough

I was disappointed by this sample.

I tried using primers under it, but ultimately too much work for me. I'm pretty pale skinned, so I was a little surprised that it didn't work out for me. I really had to pack it on to see any color, and it wasn't very long lasting.

I liked the color and the formula. There isn't anything about it that stands out to me.

I did not like this product. I tried it as both a lip and cheek stain and wasn't impressed with either one. Doesn't have much color
