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.

Great as Blush!
Sampled

I used this stain on my cheeks and ABSOLUTELY loved it. It has an all day stay and is gentle on my skin. Love the ability to use the wand instead of having to use my fingers!

actually, it's pretty transparent, but I like that it tinted my lips without screaming "hey this girl is wearing makeup" since I like a more natural look. didn't last too long though.

Natural flushed cheeks and lips
Sampled

I'm in love with this stain! It gives me a more natural blush glow than my typical powder or cream blush. The color seems to enhance skin tone naturally, and a tiny dab goes along way! This will definitely be a new staple for me.

Love this!
Sampled

I got the large sample of this- then purchased the full size after the sample ran out. It looks really dark but gives lips just a light natural Cherry color. I use this then usually top it with chap stick. It works really great if your looking for a natural look. You can also; however, layer this to make it much darker if you wanted something more vibrant. It's great and I recommend it if you are a lip stain lover.

Love this Lip Stain!

I'm not the type to wear lipstick and I use this all the time. It's the perfect red, not too sharp, but not too light. Stays on and doesn't wear off right away.

Beautiful Lipstain
Sampled

I really love this as a lipstain, the color is so pretty and natural looking and stays for a long period of time! Very beautiful and compliments any skin color. I am not too sure about the cheek stain because the color is a little too bright for me considering my fair skin tone.. but overall beautiful lipstain and honesty I love lipstain more than any other lip product so this is perfect!

Used every last drop. Really great, sheer color that looks like a healthy flush on your cheeks - perfect for lighter makeup days. Would totally get again.

My favorite lip stain!
SampledPurchased

I typically use this as a lip stain rather than cheeks. The texture and color feels great, not thick like some other lip stains. I use it alone or over lipstick. Ordered it after I went through the sample quickly!

Color payoff was amazing and the color lasts forever, lasted me through an 8 hr work day and still looked great
