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.

First thing I noticed when applying it was the weird texture it had (jelly like), second the smell wasn't too pleasing, thirdly it had a weird taste when I would lick my lips, and lastly it doesn't last very long. The old thing I did like was the shade it was a nice sheer pinky tone.

Very natural
Sampled

The color is very natural. I use this first then Chapstick and it looks like I'm barely wearing makeup. Perfect to wear to work!

I just don't like cheek stains
Sampled

I've tried benefit too and I am just not into it. It did okay with the lips but I wasn't blown away

No Stains Needed

This is the SECOND time I have received this product and I still don't like it. It goes on so dry on the lips and I really don't want to "stain" my face with the hope that I get it perfect the first time. No thank you.

Gives nice color
Sampled

This product gives lip color without the sticky gloss. It lasted okay when eating/drinking and gave a subtle look without being too over the top.

surprisingly good lip stain
Sampled

did not try this on my cheeks, but it was a great lip stain. A lot more subtle than I thought it was going to be considering the color inside the tube (which is GOOD in my book). My only gripe was it didn't last more than a few hours so I needed to reapply a lot

Lip stain

I really like this stain, but it is a little drying. I found I needed to use some lip balm after this dried.

Nice stain

I really like this stain I received in my box this month. Normally with stains I don't feel confident because I can't seem to get the color off right away. But this one is subtle.
