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.

Lovely!

I really like the sheerness of this stain. It's hard to describe how light this actually goes on. Gives lips a just bitten type of red tint. The sheer gel also gives a very natural delicate rosiness. I can never pull off stains but this looks great. Can't wait to wear over summer.

I loved this product! I was skeptical of the color when first seeing the bottle. Once I applied it, I fell in love! The color, which looks very dark, ended up coming out as a nice pink/red color that complimented me very well. I look forward to wearing this and checking out the other colors in the line.

Gives just the right amount of color. I'm not a big fan of lipstick so this works great for me!

I loved this product! The stain was very natural and fun. I've had lip stains in the past but they were too dark... But this one was perfect!

best stain I've ever tried
Sampled

This lip stain is super easy to apply and doesn't go on streaky. It fades evenly too so it doesn't end up splotchy, but it took all day to even start fading!
