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.

Seriously feels like water when applying but adds a nice mild stain to the lips. Since I'm a waitress I can't always reapply and this is one of my go tos

Pretty & Soft!

I love the color! At 1st I was off about it, because it was a dark Red/Berry color,but once I applied it it magically turned into a Light Pink color actually. So amazed by that!! It left my lips soft and looks great with my Fair skin tone. Highly satisfied with this product, even It it wasn't a lot, it defiantly convinced me to buy a larger size.

Great stain!
Sampled

The color is rich and the stain lasts for hours. Unfortunately, the product gelled (dried out) prematurely in the tube and I didn't get to use it all. I would recommend this stain for it's color and wear longevity! Perhaps the premature dry out was a result of a faulty seal between the lid and tube.

First stain
Sampled

This was the first lip stain I've ever tried and I've since found I love stains. Love this color but you have to give this dry time and it's a bit tacky to touch.

Love this lip stain

Very nice, easier and more effective than Benetint, it looks beautiful whether used on its own or layered with a lipstick to give more intensity and sexy color to the lips.

Disappointed
Sampled

I was so excited the first time I applied this stain, it is the perfect shade and just the right sheer. Unfortunately, I experienced no stain effect. It disappeared after a few minutes. I am not a reapply continuously while I'm out kinda girl, which is why a stain has such an appeal to me. This was not what I expected from a stain. The color is perfect, the application is simple & quick, but the lasting effect is just not there.

My favorite lip color
Sampled

I've really enjoyed this one. I am going to stock up. I like having it on because it feel like I'm not wearing any lipstick. It's not sticky or anything. The only thing that I don't like is that it feels so cold going on my lips, it kind of makes me shiver. That's just me though.

underwhelmed

Lips: I wanted to love this. It applied very easily. I felt the stain suck into my lips. I wasn't in love with the color, it was ok. Unfortunately, this stain accentuated every vertical line on my lips. The stain lasted about 3 hrs for me and the weird thing was the stain disappeared everywhere except for where you would line your lips. It looked like my lips were lined and I forgot to fill the rest in. I looked ridiculous. Also it was very sticky and stayed sticky on me until it wore off. My lips didn't feel parched but sure looked it.
Cheeks: applied alright. nice flush. seemed buildable. Not a fan of applying stains with fingers. Happier with Benefit brand's Benetint.

A little sticky
Sampled

While I did really like the color of this stain, it left lips a little sticky after application. Would definitely not use as a cheek stain.

Stanislac lip and cheek

This product color is cute and the product is nice for lips. It does stay on nice, although not through eating for me. I didn't find it worked very well on my cheeks though.
