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.

Nice tint of color

Nice tint of color. Not overwhelming like a lot of other stain products.

Love it! Highly recommended and deep red color. It's also a lip stain and a matte finish.

I have never been a fan of stains, but this one has changed me.

I look absolutely stunning in this. When I don't want to wear makeup, I just slap this on to give my face some life. So natural and perfect. Def worth the investment.

Looks darker but adds a nice cherry tint
Sampled

I thought it would be a lot darker but it leaves a nice tint that isn't too dark. It does dry your lips a bit, so be sure to moisturize!

Perfect for the minimalist

Love love loved this lip/cheek stain I got in my bonus December birchbox!! It gives the perfect amount of color to your lips and cheeks all while looking extremely natural! It's perfect for someone on the go and not very into makeup like me! Gives me just enough oomph without looking like I put in too much work! Will definitely be buying the full size!

Amazing

I love this product! I got it as a sample and I will definitely be purchasing. It's so simple and you only need a little bit. It takes a couple seconds to apply and it looks like you're wearing lipstick! I apply chapstick after I use it. The color is amazing and it stays on all day!

Awesome color

I love this product. It gives the perfect amount of color that looks natural. When I say natural I mean it looks like I'm not wearing any makeup!!!

Love it!!

I love this stain! I put a few dots on the apples of my cheeks then use my fingers to blend it towards my temples. It blends well and stays on all day and night. My fingers do get stained too so I should probably try using a makeup sponge.

I LOVE staniac. I was very nervous when I purchased this, but went off the strength of the positive reviews. I ordered "beauty queen" and it is so deep red in the tube, I was concerned, but I didn't want to get the more pinkish shade, as I never have luck with pinks
