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.

Good lip stain

Have nit been able to try on cheeks, but this stain is perfect for lips! if only a little is a applied, it creates a nice neutral color. if a lot is applied, can be a good bold lip!

Great product for a natural glow. I've even used it for my 9 yr old! Love how light yet visible it really is.

Subtle hint of color

Love that this stain is not too loud. It does sink into the lines of your lips, but I love the long lasting color.

I'm not usually a fan of red lip color, however, one swipe of this product left the perfect color on my lips for me. I will be ordering this product soon.

This was a good lip stain, let color on your lips but didn't put too much and it wasn't too bright.

I have tried similar stain-like lip colors before but they have always left my lips dry and uncomfortable. This one is perfect - my lips feel great and the color is gorgeous, subtle but makes a difference.

I love erything about it. Perfect shade and really works and lasts. Does not leave the glossy look or over coated look like other lip sticks and glosses haven't tried it on my cheeks yet.

This stain is gorgeous and subtle if that's what you like, but you can layer it for a matte, dramatic look, too! Five stars. :)
