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.

Natural without fuss

I don't wear a lot of lip color, I am one of those girls who can play with my makeup for an hour or more when I am putting it on but I don't like having to do much to retouch. This has kept me away from traditional lipsticks but this is just my cup of tea. It leaves my lips tinted without much worry about having to constantly check my lips in a mirror. It is a very subtle tint that leaves my lips looking better than natural.

Good for lips
Sampled

Only tried this for my lips and have been very happy with it. You can make the color light or dark by applying additional layers

Great, lightweight stain but is a little crumbly. Doesn't last more than a few hours.

Not a fan

Maybe I'm just not using it right? This has really bad coverage, seems like you'd have to use a lot of layers for it to show up which isn't ideal for a tiny sample. Haven't tried it on my cheeks yet.

Use for cheeks not lips
SampledPurchased

I don't prefer this for the lips but as a gentle blush-love! Ever since I got my first sample a year or so ago, I have order it numerous times and its all I use. Its subtle, lasts, and I don't have any weird stickiness on my cheeks. Its just enough!

Perfect!

I don't like wearing lipstick, so this is perfect for me. It gives my lips just a touch of color and looks very natural.

This stuff was weird. Looked like I had an illness. It was a pain to get it off of my lips.

Love it

Seriously feels like water when applying but adds a nice mild stain to the lips. Since I'm a waitress I can't always reapply and this is one of my go tos
