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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

I thought that this would have more color to it but I could barely tell I had put anything on my lips.

A little intense

I'm not a fan of this product but I don't love the idea of "stains" in general ... it's very rosy so if it's your shade then go for it but be prepared for a little intensity. It does last, so I'll give it a star for it being long-lasting.

I am not really a fan of lip stains so my review may be bias. I applied a couple of layers because I didn't see much color with the first application. I also felt it dried out my lips
