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.

Dries out lips

I love the idea of this stain. It’s a great berry color and makes your lips look natural but bright. Great for older gals like me who have lost some color in their lips. But, wow, it was so drying.

I liked it
Sampled

I liked the color but you have to keep applying to fill in all the space on your lips. It also wore off pretty easily

Too watery it runs and leaves lips streaked and uneven

I really liked the Instain blush from theBalm so I was excited to get another cheek product form them, but this one was very disappointing. I think I'm just not a fan of things that are multifunctional.

Very Sheer

This color came on thin and sheer, and didn’t dry out or clump up. It tools a few layers, but the color really pops if you let it dry fully between layers.

Not as great

I loved it when I first put it on, but sadly it didn't stay on long at all. I had to keep applying it while I was working, which was a pain. Wish it stayed on longer..
