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....

I like the product and the concept of it, but the color itself was too light for my lips and no matter how many layers I put on, the product seemed to not stain my lips the way I needed it to.

Awesome tint

This is perfect for the mommy-on-the-go that just wants a little tint to go with her quickly thrown on make-up look.

Lip Stain
Sampled

As for a lip stain, I would say this works just fine. It did look a tad bit tacky. But when I used it to stain my cheek, no matter how much I put on, I cannot see it at all.

Not for me...

I feel like I had to use layer upon layer upon layer to get color out of it and even then it didn't last long.. I was not impressed! Maybe if my skin was lighter I could see it more but on darker skin you can't even tell.. Sad pants!

Love the chance to try a lip stain!
Sampled

I really thought that this was a great little sample of lip stain and my 15 year old about died of envy when she saw it. Just in personal preference as a 40 year woman I like lip color that looks and feels a little less translucent and a bit more opaque.

Natural color

I have light brown skin and I tried this on my lips and cheeks. It gave me a nice natural color on my lips but did not last very long. It looked nice and natural on my cheeks as well but it took few drops before the stain was visible on my skin.

I am not a fan of stains. Even if I was this particular one doesn't really work well. It came off my lips very quickly
