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.

Stain all day.

Great for a day on the go with casual clothes or the gym were you don't need much.

Tasted Awful
Sampled

This tasted terribly bitter. Did not apply color evenly.

Takes Some Getting Used to, But Good
Sampled

This is very different from other stains I've used, but I ended up liking the gel consistency better than the more wet formulation of something like Benetint. It gives you more time to blend it in. It layers well, and takes a good amount of product to build it up to a strong color, but I like it none the less.

It was ok

Didn't stay on long enough, not sure why it's rated so high

the Balm is bomb
Sampled

This reminds me a lot of Benetint. It is a super thin stain, and not as dark as it looks in the container. That's okay though. It looks like a darker red but goes on almost like a pink. It's a little build able, but not too much. Overall, a good product.

Not for me
Sampled

I would not purchase this product. The color is too dark for me and it wasn't easy to work with. If I had darker skin I think it would make a difference.

Lip stain
Sampled

I tried it on my lips and the color was blah. Didn't really have a seeable color on my lips. Didn't show up well at all.

Nice Stain
Sampled

I really like the color, a nice pink that's not too bright but it didn't last very long for me.

Very light color
Sampled

I expected this to be bright red on my lips, but the color is almost non existent as a lip stain. It's more of a clear gel with a hint of pink. The lasting power was definitely not there for me. It may do better as a cheek color.

Good summer blush
Sampled

This will be a great go to for summer. It gives a nice flush to the cheeks but didn't last very long on me
