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.

new to lip stains

got this as a sample in my get one free birch box. I love it. just enough color to look natural. if you put it on, let it dry and do another layer it will darken slightly. this stain is meant to be natural looking so it will not look like lipstick. once dry it isn't very tacky or sticky at all. it has a matte finish. my skin tone is medium with warm undertones and it looks great on me. perfect... I love it and didn't think I would.

Color me impressed

Unlike other stains, this does not leave my lips dry or flakey. I can't get enough of it; I will be needing the full size! I love the minamilist look of the product. Leaves just enough pigment to enhance my natural lip color but it's buildable. Especially, when you wear it with a neutral makeup look it adds that extra pop. Just effortless.

This stain is great for lips, cheeks, and on a date night, I'll even apply just a tiny bit to my nipples!

For my lips, I tend to use this as a base that I layer other colors on top of. Layered with neutral tones, it's a very fresh, natural shade of pink. Perfect for enhancing what you already have. Layered with bright red, it helps to anchor the lip color in place. Layered with glosses, it looks really pretty and helps plump up thin lips. It's not moisturizing on its own, and can in fact dry my lips a bit, so I rarely wear it without something on top, even if it's a clear moisturizer.

For my cheeks, I can brush a tiny bit across my cheekbones for a great "flushed" look. Just be careful not to wait too long before you rub/blend it in or the streaks remain visible!

On a more scintillating note, I have been known to apply a slight amount on my nipples for date night. It makes me feel like I have prettier breasts in case the opportunity comes up to show them off. <3
