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.

I wasn't sure what to do with this product when I received it. I'm not one to use cheek stain as I'm a dark chocolate complexion. I decided to use it as a lip stain and I was pleasantly surprised but the achieved results. Stainiac gives your lips a hint of color with out having to use lipstick which I love. The texture reminds me of a jelly like consistency and goes on smoothly. You'll need to reapply several times a day, but overall I like the product. Considering purchasing the full size with some of my points.

I didn't care for it much as a lip stain just because I light a lighter shade, but I love it as a cheek stain! It has a nice sheen that makes it look like a natural flush!

I love this product! I was unsure if it would really last all day, but through all the "wear and tear" of the day it stayed on. I tend to use it as a lip stain more and often keep it in my purse. It is great for a natural look, although as a cheek tint, a little on the darker side. Great product for on the go.

I love this lip stain. It is so natural looking and I don't find it to be sticky. It lasts a long time. I will buy this product again for sure.

I love the way the color blends and leaves a sheer natural tint on my lips and cheeks. I'm a big fan of dual purpose make up and this gives me a natural pink pop of color without a heavy look and feel.

Love how easy this applies! The color is not as dark as it looks - very natural looking once applied.
