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.

Great Stain!
Sampled

I used for lips only. I like that one pass gives color without being overly bold. For a more visible look, a double pass does the trick. It's a great shade and stays on great, although I have thin lips and unless the stain is strong, it wont stay as long as it might for others.

Great!

I love this product! It gave my cheeks and lips a small hint of color in the gross winter months when your skin needs it. Looks natural and pink, not fake and cake like, like some
Bronzes.

Not a fan of this color personally but It does stay on for hours. I would purchase this product in the future but in a different color.

Works but not for mw

This product did stain the heck out of my cheeks and lips when I tried it. I don't like stains very much, I also don't like the color of bright red because it just doesn't look good on my skin. I won't be purchasing.

Good as a lip tint
Sampled

It's a great subtle lip tint that's very durable. However as advertised as both a cheek and lip tint, it didn't blend well to be a cheek tint and was a little dark. Love it as a lip tint though

A quick out the door stain

I love how quickly and easily this applies and looks natural. No waiting for it to dry and no worry of smudges when in a rush to get out the door
