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.

Love lip stains! This one works well, stays on for a long time. Doesn't smudge

Cheek stain

Really love that product is a 2 in 1. I can use it for my cheek or as a lip tint. Love how it looks so natural.

Love the color
Sampled

I love lip stains- they are way easier to use/last generally longer than reg lipstick. Also huge fan of a pop of red lips- still use.

Light coverage

This is not a long lasting product but I really liked the way it looked. It just drains your lips a few shades darker than they usually are. You can put on a few layers to darken.

Just ok

I was super impressed with this product. I don't normally use stains so I didn't know what to expect. It didn't deliver much color

Good for lip
Sampled

I use this when I want a subtle hint of color on my lips. I don't care for this as a blush, but it's nice for layering or as a base for red lips without the bold statement. Product is hard to get on at first but once it's on it sticks fairly well. Overall decent product.

not great
Sampled

The consistency of the product is nice - not too runny like the other lip stain I sampled - and I liked the color. However, it doesn't apply evenly. Parts of my lips were definitely brighter than others even though I attempted to even them out and have tried it multiple times.
