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.

Imagine Liquid Kool Aid,,, this is what it is, just color. Just one drop and your lips look like they have never lost their color, it looks natural. I love it!!!

Great Lip Stain
Sampled

Love this lip stain! At first I thought it would be too pink but, after I tried it, I loved it! It's a very natural looking lip tint. I love wearing it at work because it doesn't look like I'm wearing a ton of makeup.

Love!!!

I love this lip stain! It goes on so lightly and evenly, and it can be layered for a more dramatic result. Using one sweep it, my lips looked as if I had nothing on and they were just a richer, deeper color. It never really looks red like it does in the tube but it was def my fav this month!

Love the subtle color but wish it would last longer
Sampled

I love how easily this product goes on and how it provides a nice, subtle color. However, I have found that for a stain- it doesn't last very long. The taste is slightly sweet but still has that chemically taste that some stains have.

Beautiful color, but giving it to my teenager.

Smells wonderful, tastes nice. A little sloppy, as some got on my teeth. However, my 13 yr old LOVED it, soaked and stayed on her. Keep it in the younger boxes. I need a replacement. I'm 45. My daughter got it in an earlier box and raved. That is why I knew the brand.

Didn't care for it.

This went on extremely patchy in color. I do not recommend getting this product. I hate that I didn't like it, because I really love the brand.

I like the idea of this product and am glad I was able to try it out. This color, however, made my lips look more Kool-aid stained than I was expecting and it did wear off after a few hours. I would have liked a more matte colored stain from this type of product and something that lasted longer.

This was interesting, I'm not a fan of the shade that was sent to me, but if they sent me a more likable shade I might love this product.

I tried this product on my lips so far and I just want a fan. It may be better as blush though idk
