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.

It was alright. Kind of a bright color for my skin color so I only use it much.

Good stain
Sampled

I used this on my cheeks and didn't use a lot at first so it wasn't really noticeable. But when I used more it was too dark ( I have very fair skin). But I liked it on my lips and it really lasts. It is typical of stains though in that it is drying.

I absolutely loved this lip stain! I liked that it wasn't too thick so I could layer it on.

You have to apply several coats...I use a similar lip stain by Younique that I like much better. I application and you are good to go!

Easy to apply without requiring too much effort or skill. The color builds well and lasted even through eating and drinking. The stain on lips lasted probably about three hours total.

Great shade

I normally use only light glosses so I gave this to my daughter and it looks phenomenal on her. Just like the swatch online and I like the consistency and the fact it's a stain and gives a nice natural pop of color.

Decent Lip Stain/Cheek Color

Love the color of this lip stain and cheek color. Not sure how well it worked as a cheek color for me, but will definitely use it for a lip stain.

I do not really understand why people are so excited about this product. It did not work for me...sticky and colorless. There are much better options.
