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 wasn't sure about this product at first, but I've been using different kinds of blushes lately. It gives my cheeks a nice natural looking glow. I might actually buy it when it's time to get a new blush.

The "stain" is almost unnoticeable, not very impressed , the packaging, eh.. but the consistency and the way it dries is great! C-

This product worked very well; the stain was not too strongly colored upholding it's claim to stain.

I have never used a lip stain before so when I got this I wasn't sure that I would like it, but once I tried it it was pretty great! I like the color and it seems to stay on well.

It felt like i was wearing cheap lip gloss little girls under 10 use. Very watery, no color.

I grew to like it

I'm a lipstick kinda gal, so when this product was going on rather sheer and lackluster, I was unimpressed. However, for my more relaxed days, this product was great for that light tint of red. Other days, I'd just use it beneath another lip product. It was very much like eating a red popsicle in terms of color and depth

I was really excited to try this product, however I found that it didn't apply as evenly as I would like. The product stuck to dry patches on my lips (that I didn't even know existed!) and so looked patchy and not that great.

Sticky

The color was nice and light but it left my lips feeling rather sticky... Probably wouldn't buy it

Great product for a "get ready quick" on a lazy day, but you need to run to the store.
