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.

Liked it!

I thought this was great! I didn't use it on my cheeks, just my lips and it stayed on for most of the morning.

Just wish it went on a little darker as the look of the product from the tube.

Not great
Sampled

Not the best. The color is great, but the coverage is uneven, giving my lips a blotchy look. I will not be buying this product in the future.

Stained my lips - not in a good way
Sampled

I guess my lips must've been dry or something. It stained them in a very undesirable manner. When I tried to fix it, the stain wouldn't set into another part of my lip, and it looked like I got hit in the mouth with something. I will never use something like this ever again. I'll stick to regular lip color.

Not effective
Sampled

This went on really thin and wiped off very easily. I have tried other stains that are much more effective and longer lasting.

So flattering! This applied a light tint to my lips and cheeks. Love the look on my lips.

Lip Stains are not for me
Sampled

Everything about this product was fine, no complaints....but I gave it only average reviews because I just prefer a lip gloss or lip stick to a lip stain.

Love it!

I really like the color of this product. It is bright and makes a statement. The lip stain creates, not a natural look, but one of augmented reality. Like the name implies, it stains your lips instead of covering them, so it feels more natural than your average lipstick.

They really mean hint
Sampled

Pleasant color, just a little hint of color, which is nice. Feels drying and a little sticky on my lips & didn't blend as well as I'd like for cheek stain.
