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 used a tiny lip liner brush to apply this lipstick product onto my lips. It looks to me like it would be hard to get off if you made a mistake in applying it. The color is too red for me, but I would just try a pinker shade to see if I liked it better. I outlined my lips and then filled in with color and I liked the way it lasted for such a long time.

Nice surprise
Sampled

I was hesitant about this product at first because the color in the bottle seemed really dark. The application was easy. It provided my lips with a nice natural tint as well as my cheeks. It is my go to product now. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least.

Not impressed
Sampled

I wasn't sure what to expect when I got this sample in my monthly box. I was pretty disappointed with this product because it was sticky on my lips and didn't really add anything to my look. I think I was expecting it to be more of a regular lip gloss but it was too sticky.

This is not a lip stain.
Sampled

Not in the traditional form that I've come to understand (and love), I didn't get a great tint from this product. It was not long lasting, the smell wasn't too great, and it was thoroughly disappointed. Oh well, I guess that is why I love this try before you buy concept...

It works
Sampled

I'm not really a fan of stains but this stain does the trick. It didn't really stain my teeth or anything, which was great. The color was a little too strong for me but overall, good stuff!

Doesn't work
Sampled

I used it as the directions said. I wasn't too impressed and ended up having to use my own makeup instead. I didn't feel like it actually worked. Definitely wouldn't buy.

I am not a fan

The product would not be visible on my lips. It works on my cheeks but it is not something I wear. I have no use for that product so I gave it yo a friend.

Perfection in a tube
Sampled

I haven't tried anything like this before receiving it in my birchbox . I was super excited because i have been trying to find one that will actually work. Lipstick is great but i cant find one that wants to stay on my lips for long periods of time. This stain lasted all night at the club drinking and eating.. A+ forsure!!!!!

Long lasting color that is not sticky. My lips felt conditioned during and after use.
