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 consistency, good product
Sampled

This was a nice sample, I thought the size was good and it had decent lasting. This is actually the third similar lip stain I've received from Birchbox since being gifted my subscription in December, so it's just a bit redundant. I didn't think it was hands down better than the other two, so neutral on that. But I good color with nice staying power and nothing to complain about with smell!

Not Impressed

This was definitely not a favorite in this month's box. The stain was barely visible and did not feel great on the lips.

Love this product for a natural no makeup look. Works great at giving your lips that little tint of color.

I liked the color and the consistency of this product. It gave a natural not over the top looking color to my lips. It stayed on well and was long lasting so I liked it overall. The only negative was that the next day my lips seemed to be really dry and chapped. Not sure if it was the product or just a coincidence.

Something that you can just throw in your bag and go love it. I take the minimum stuff with me and that item is perfect.

Not so pigmented
Sampled

For my first time using this product, I was expecting the color to be very vibrant, but it was not as pigmented as suspected. That being said, the stain did last through eating snacks and having a drink. If I was going to purchase this in the future I would choose a different shade because I did like how long the color lasted.

Great product!

This lip stain is a great product, has a beautiful lightweight feel and moisturizes the lips. The color was natural, and not too intense.
