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.

This lipstick/blush combo is great. Although I haven't tried using it as blush yet the lipstick is awesome. It is kind of a stain but it is subtle. It leaves your lips with a natural red flush. Great for someone who doesn't want something to wild

Sinks into lips and stays there for hours after application.

Good alternate for lipstick
Sampled

I never wear lipstick or lipgloss, so this product was a great alternative for me! I hate having heavy product on my lips so this was just enough to have some color but not be too cakey. It stayed on for a long time too!

Okay Stain

It's a nice texture, not sticky or goopy. However it barely imparts any color and what little it adds to your lips disappears the first time you take a drink of anything. Might as well just use clear lipbalm and get some benefit from it for all the color this "stain" gives you.

Awesome!!

A really great lip stain. It goes on easy and you can keep layering to have it be a bolder look. Doesn't dry out my lips at all and lasts forever!

The stain was not dark enough for my lips and immediately faded from my cheeks -

Great stain!

I loved this stain because you can actually control how dark or light you'd like it. I roll my normal lip balm on after I apply it, and it doesn't come off.

Did not like this product at all. It gave my lips zero color, even after many layers. I've been searching for a cheek stain and I was excited to try this but it didn't give my cheeks any color either. Disappointing.
