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.

Nice but a little hard to blend
Sampled

I enjoyed the color of this product. It's a lot pinker than the red it appears to be. It's a great shade but you have to blend it in a bit right after applying so it's not "patchy" on your cheeks. Nice bright tone on lips!

It's alright
Sampled

It doesn't strike me of a lip stain, more of a tint. I received a very light pink color. You have to apply plenty for it to stick. It left my lips sticky.

Little Color
Sampled

No payoff with the color. Weird texture, no consistency. Not a fan. Was really excited to try.

It was okay
Sampled

It was okay. It didn't stain as deep as I would prefer and just didn't coat evenly (and I tried)

Very interesting product
Sampled

I found this product interesting because it was not specifically for your lips. I put a dot of this stain on my cheeks and it worked the same as blush. I love how you can control how dark it is by rubbing it in more. I don't usually wear makeup, but putting a little bit on my cheeks and maybe a little on my lips makes a small difference - which is what I was going for!

Pretty Good
Sampled

This product is very good. This product is effective and has a deep color. Its pigmented, has a lot of uses, made me want to buy the full size and is good all around.

It's alright

I love the color of this product and I love the idea of using it to replace blush and a lip stick.My only problem was it lasts for maybe an hour on me.It is almost as it fades and for me that kind of defeats it purpose.

Hmmm
Sampled

I don't really know what to do with this product. I mean, I obviously know what to do with it (put it on my lips), but I don't know how I feel about it. The first time I put it on, my lips looked a bit like I'd applied melted cherry jell-o to them. But after a bit, I did like the effect. I was surprised at that, of course, but I tried it again and I'm gradually warming up to this product. Great for summer.

Great for people who aren't huge on lipstick
Sampled

This is perfect for someone who needs just a touch of color added to their lips it dries quick but doesn't leave your lips dry. I am actually impressed with this product
