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.

Love this lip stain

Very nice, easier and more effective than Benetint, it looks beautiful whether used on its own or layered with a lipstick to give more intensity and sexy color to the lips.

Really Like Double Duty and Matte Finish!
Sampled

It is hard to find a lip gloss that dries to a matte finish. It dries very quickly, too! The sample size is perfect as I have been carrying a smaller purse for about a year, training myself to stop keeping needless clutter. This stain will be extremely handy when the weather gets warm and we are at some event all day then meet friends for dinner in the evening. I will only need one product to reapply quickly to cheeks and lips before being seated. It is a great color for both. 5 Stars - thanks Birchbox! : )

More Colors, Please!

I'm always chewing off my lipstick, or so it seems, but I forgot I was wearing any color with this product. I applied it at 7:30 am (along with lip liner), had tea and a muffin at 10 am, and the stain is still on at 10:30. My only wish is that it was offered in a peach tone, since I'm not so much of a "pink-ish" person.

Closest thing to natural color
Sampled

I've been told that the older you get the pigment in your lip fades. At 41, I'm starting to realize that is true. I love this because it gives my lips a natural look. If I put on a double dose (wait 5 minutes to reapply), I will even use it for natural evening look.

Best lip stain ever!

I'm not usually a fan of lip stains, this one however is amazing it gives your lips just the right amount of color! The color looks dark, but ends up giving your lips a darker pink color .. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!

Absolutely perfect two-in-one!

I love this product! It is a stain for lips and cheeks that is so light, but also very buildable. You can have either a hint of color, or make a bold lip pop. I will definitely be getting this product when I run out... which will be very soon.

Awesome!

I got this as a bonus and I love it! It delivers a completely natural flush to cheeks and color to lips. It is the ultimate in no make up make up - just makes me look pretty

Surprisingly great

The color is flattering on a variety of complexions and with a variety of facial makeup styles. Also, the stain layers very well.

light weight and fun

This is the first stain I've ever tried and I am pleasantly surprised. It's light weight, not too dark, and makes my lips look fuller. I like the minimalist, I just drank fruit punch look. It does take a few minutes to dry.

I LOVE THIS!!!

I was weary about his product because I thought the coverage would be off. BOY WAS I WRONG! It dries in seconds and lasts a LOT longer than I anticipated.
