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.

Perfect lip stain
Sampled

It's like you're not wearing makeup. Perfectly berry tinged lips are what you're left with after one application. A second coat will leave your lips a little sticky but the color lasts most of the day. Definitely perfect for stashing in your clutch!

don't wear lipstick

I don't wear lipstick color so this product doesn't really relate to me. I'm sure it is great for others.

On the fence

I was looking forward to this product upon receipt. Could just be my lips but it was too liquidity and didn't stain as I thought it would or stay for more than a half hour after I applied it. Wasn't a fan of the taste on my lips either.

Ehhhh

I think that this is just ok for me. I have tried other stains that were of better quality so I would not purchase this for myself.

A bit of a disappointment
Sampled

I love receiving lip colors and stains in my box, but this one is pretty awful. And I hate saying that about a product. If I didn't feel guilty about giving something a 1 star rating I would have done so. The product is sticky on my lips. It says that it takes longer to dry, but it feels like it never does. It also says that you can apply multiple coats for a more pronounced huge, but when I apply more than one coat, the pigment is still barely there. And, by the time I put it on and drive to work it seems like its already worn off.

I love this stuff. It you lips that perfect tint without standing out to much. I apply when I'm going for a more natural look. And it feels great.

Just ok. Nothing special. Another sticky-ish "lip" gloss
