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.

awesome color!
Sampled

I guess with over 66,000 reviews this product speaks for itself but I want to add to the greatness! I'm fair skinned, blonde, green eyes and I typically shy away from anything really bright - but when applied its just enough color to brighten up my face. I'm sure this layers well for a deeper color but a quick swipe is all I need to freshen up! Love this!

My NEW go-to lip and cheek stain!
Sampled

I already LOVE mostly all products from this brand, but this stain took the cake!
The color is beautiful and flattering to any skin tone. It looks so so pretty as a cheek stain and lasts forever when used with a setting spray.
I also apply this to my lips and the color is sheer but so pretty and natural. I wish it lasted longer as a lip stain but for now this is by far my most favorite sample I have received and already purchased the larger size.

Great Color
Sampled

I was initially worried about the color of this lip stain. To my delight, it is not as red on my lips. The stain goes on evenly and has a nice matte finish. I have also tried a sheer gloss over top of the stain, which also looks great.
