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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

I prefer to use this on my cheeks rather than my lips

Love the color
Sampled

It seems the other stains I've tried just jump right on my lips...I love that the color is more controllable! It's still a little sticky but is totally doable.

Perfect little hint of color
Sampled

I definitely used too much the first time. Just a tiny bit goes along way with my skin tone. Gives pretty, subtle color.

similar to benefit benetint
Sampled

Im a long time user of the benetint products. This is similar - bit stronger than benefit stains. appearance fades after a couple of hours.

I received this as a sample. The color is ok, not very long lasting though.

Excellent product
Sampled

This product worked great as both a lip stain and a cheek stain. I liked how, once it dried, there wasn't any texture on my cheeks or lips - it literally just "stained" it a pretty reddish pink color. The color lasts a long time too.

it was clumpy maybe it was old not too sure not gel like it says had to stir it up a bit, it has a bad taste also when put on lips, liked the color though maybe they could improve taste and consistency

ok but not for ne

I liked this product but I didn't love the color for me. I like lip and cheek stains but this one was a little too red for my complexion
