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.

Wet

I think it's a great idea it was just very wet and it didn't seem to leave a stain until it was applied repeatedly. I'd have to say other products work better.

okay.....
Sampled

I was surprised to find that this product was a gel. It didn't really want to spread with the applicator. I'm not sure if it was just the color I received in my box or what, but color-wise it didn't really change the appearance of my lips.

Not very long lasting
Sampled

While I enjoyed the color this tint gave my lips, it was very drying and didn't last very long. Every time I licked my lips it would taste horrible and felt very sticky for a long time after applying

Not enough color for me.
Sampled

I love a stain and although this product felt good on my lips I was unable to achieve very much color. I like a sheer, almost like I've been eating raspberries look, but I couldn't even achieve that color even after I layered it. I'm sure it works great for others.

Lovely!

I really like the sheerness of this stain. It's hard to describe how light this actually goes on. Gives lips a just bitten type of red tint. The sheer gel also gives a very natural delicate rosiness. I can never pull off stains but this looks great. Can't wait to wear over summer.

Stainiac lip stain
Sampled

I loved this product! I was skeptical of the color when first seeing the bottle. Once I applied it, I fell in love! The color, which looks very dark, ended up coming out as a nice pink/red color that complimented me very well. I look forward to wearing this and checking out the other colors in the line.

I really loved the color of this lip/cheek stain, but for my lips, it only lasted maybe an hour. It went on so easily and I LOVED the shade it made my lips and cheeks...just not happy with the short-lived effects.
