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.

I would rate this product first over all the lipsticks that I've used. First most, I prefer to have a lipstick that doesn't leave a dense feeling after application. This is so light and fits my tone no matter what kind of make up I decide for the day!

Does what it says and a little goes a long way

Works very well and at least for your lips, one tiny drop is all you need to cover your lips. I think this products works very well and would definitely be worth the money seeing as it will last you a long time. Different color options would be preferable, but not enough to not give it a five star rating. My only real complaint about this product is after applying, it isn't the longest lasting wearable lip color.
I am very honest with my rating/reviews because I know I go off reviews on items I am looking to purchase to get us well-informed which may or may not deter my purchasing. When I give a five star rating, the product has to be perfect as I am brutally honest with reviews. This is a terrific product and again, even the sample size is still lasting me so just imagine what the full-size can do for you!

Perfect shade!

Perfect refresher if you just need a perk for cheeks or lips. Also great for every day. Good shade, very subtle but still manages to pop!

I was really excited about this stain, as I'm always looking for a more natural look that lasts. Very disappointed. Color doesn't go on evenly. Impossible to blend. Looks weird. I

Gorgeous light color and doesn't taste bad!

absolutely crazy about this! it's kind of expensive, but I've decided it's worth the cost. It doesn't taste bad, leaves a beautiful light tint, and it lasts a long time. My new favorite!

I love this stuff. You can make it as sheer or dark as you want and it stays on. I have never seen a stain like this. I usually don't like them, but this doesn't bleed. It's beautiful!!!

Worked as intended.

This product worked on my lips and provided a nice lip stain, although I would not use again. I did not enjoy the taste it left on my lips.

Perfect!

I've tried many tints before that have either been too sticky or too pigmented. This lip and cheek stain applies smoothly and is sheer enough to layer. I like to apply a little on the inner side of my lips for a subtle gradient lip, and then use whatever is left over on my cheeks for a healthy glow. The formula is wonderful. Will consider purchase!

Stain stays on your lips for the majority of the day

I absolutely LOVE this stain! I have very pale lips and this stays on the majority of the day. You can also layer it for a bolder look. The wand makes the stain incredibly easy to apply to the lips. I have not used the product on my cheeks, but I imagine it would be great there too! I've been using the benefit product for years, but was always frustrated using it on my lips, as the applicator is more of a nail polish brush. I definitely prefer this stain for the lips now!

I love the idea of this, but the product was too drying for my lips.
