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.

Not for dry lips
Sampled

My lips are flaky and have very dry patches. This product stained the dry areas for hours and did not show up on the rest of my lips.

Okay

I am not a fan of lip stain so my review is biased. I tried it on and it is a light red color almost pink. It does on a little dry and stays on. If you like lip stain this is the product for you

I really like the color of this stain. I tried it on my lips and it looks nice except the color looks blotchy on my bottom lip even though I applied it evenly... I haven't tried it on my cheeks yet

Decent name
Sampled

Love that you can use it on lips or cheeks. Great color when used as lip tint and adds a nice, subtle rosey color to cheeks. Easy to use and lasts for a while as cheek color. When used as a lip color will rub off easily so must reapply often.

Gives a nice glow
Sampled

Seemed a little bright coming out of the package, but just a few dots gave my cheeks a nice glow. I didn't like it on my lips - too hot pink.

It's nice
Sampled

It stains incredibly nicely. I like it on my lips and when I go out for a long time I like to wear it right under my blush so when my powder blush fades away a light stain stays

I hated the color
Sampled

I did not like the color it was way to red and the color didn't even really show up. It was very ugly.

not very strong
Sampled

I was excited when I saw this in my box and have used it a couple of times. The problem is that it doesn't stain particularly strong, which may be the point but I was expecting something stronger like other brands I have tried. Also, I felt like it left my lips a bit dry.

Just was not impressed with this lip stain. I liked the color but did not like the texture. It did not stay on as long as I felt it should being a lip stain

Average
Sampled

I thought this product was average. Nothing special but it did make a difference in staining the lips. My lips are dark though, so it didn't look that great but i can see it being good with lighter lips!
