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.

I love this stuff. You can make it as sheer or dark as you want and it stays on. I have never seen a stain like this. I usually don't like them, but this doesn't bleed. It's beautiful!!!

Perfect!

I've tried many tints before that have either been too sticky or too pigmented. This lip and cheek stain applies smoothly and is sheer enough to layer. I like to apply a little on the inner side of my lips for a subtle gradient lip, and then use whatever is left over on my cheeks for a healthy glow. The formula is wonderful. Will consider purchase!

Stain stays on your lips for the majority of the day

I absolutely LOVE this stain! I have very pale lips and this stays on the majority of the day. You can also layer it for a bolder look. The wand makes the stain incredibly easy to apply to the lips. I have not used the product on my cheeks, but I imagine it would be great there too! I've been using the benefit product for years, but was always frustrated using it on my lips, as the applicator is more of a nail polish brush. I definitely prefer this stain for the lips now!

Instantly loved it

It is very lightweight and natural looking which I love, stays put for a long time. Scared to try it as a blush but as a lip stain I would absolutely buy it again.

I'm not of fan of lipstick in general so stains areally great for me. This one goes on easy, is easy to layer for darker shades and I really love the color.

Subtle color

The tint of this is very light and natural, and it has great staying power. It's awkward to apply as a blush, but it's my new go-to "no-lipstick lipstick". My only complaint is that it's slightly sticky (or it dries slowly), but adding lip balm on top made it as comfortable as wearing nothing.
