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.

Love it.

I have a hard time finding lip products that look good and non-costumy on me. This one is great! It's just a subtle touch of color, and you can put on another coat when the first dries if you want a little more intense color. Definitely tried it as blush, too, great in a pinch! It didn't dry out my lips like some other stains have, which was really nice.

Not impressed.

Didn't really feel like anything when I put it on my lips. The tint wasn't very good.

Good consistency
Sampled

The texture of the stain wasn't what I was expecting, but it was still nice. I tried it on my lips instead of my cheeks, and the color wore pretty well. Not super long wearing, but faded all right.

The balm Staniac

This lip product is amazing. It's a great ad on to any look and stays on your lips for a long time. Once my sample is used up I will be repurchasing

Loved. Staniac
Sampled

I recently purchased a rival product for quite a bit more and was extremely unsatisified. The Staniac was a better product and lasted almost as long. I will difanitly buy this product in the future.

Hardly a Stain
Sampled

I was excited to see that I received a lip stain/tint in my Birchbox especially in this very pretty red shade. Unfortunately the tint hardly stained my lips. Plus its a really interesting texture. I do not recommend this product.
