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.

This stain is most definitely a stain. Once I put it on it didn't leave residue anywhere and I didn't have to frequently reapply. The color is very subtle and gives a rosy look, which I loved. If you are looking for more color then I don't think this is for you, but it is perfect for a natural everyday look.

I really, really liked this lipstain. Usually you get a stain that is fairly thin in consistency and it tends to bleed or feather on the lips of you don't apply it carefully. This formulation is more gel like so it goes EXACTLY where you put it with no bleeding or feathering. It looks phenomenal layered with a gloss, either colored to make a richer red color or a clear gloss for a bit of shine. Lasts a LONG LONG time.

I love this lip stain so much that I'm always grabbing it. It's perfect for the days when you don't want to look like you put too much effort into your appearance but want that natural great lip look. It goes on in a medium tone, but you can reapply for a deeper color. Finish with a gloss for a classy look. It dries in seconds and lasts a decent time (less if you're dining).

I love the natural looks of stains. This gave a pretty flush and lasted longer Benitint, which I also use. I will probably purchase in future.
