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.

This is my favorite lip product. Subtle enough to be causal but can also dress things up

Mulitpurpose stain! Great for layered lip color.

This stain is great for lips, cheeks, and on a date night, I'll even apply just a tiny bit to my nipples!

For my lips, I tend to use this as a base that I layer other colors on top of. Layered with neutral tones, it's a very fresh, natural shade of pink. Perfect for enhancing what you already have. Layered with bright red, it helps to anchor the lip color in place. Layered with glosses, it looks really pretty and helps plump up thin lips. It's not moisturizing on its own, and can in fact dry my lips a bit, so I rarely wear it without something on top, even if it's a clear moisturizer.

For my cheeks, I can brush a tiny bit across my cheekbones for a great "flushed" look. Just be careful not to wait too long before you rub/blend it in or the streaks remain visible!

On a more scintillating note, I have been known to apply a slight amount on my nipples for date night. It makes me feel like I have prettier breasts in case the opportunity comes up to show them off. <3

Best stain ever!

This is the best lip and cheek stain I have ever used. It stays on all day long and does not get on your teeth or anywhere else. I love how it looks on its own without any other makeup. I highly recommend this product.

I loved this product. Dries quickly so it doesn't feel like I have anything on my lips but they still have color.

I've been on the hunt for a decent lip stain for the longest time. Look no further. I anticipate buying this for myself, but as a gift for my friends who love good beauty products as well. Awesome, perfect stain. It will most likely last into the next day, so make sure you have another lip product picked out to help cover the transition back to your regular, nude lip.
