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.

I really do not like these lip and cheek stains. I do not like them and I will never purchase a full size of the product.

Great color on this lip stain
Sampled

When I went to try this stain, I was a little concerned about how dark red it was. Applying it though, my concerns were alleviated because the color looks really natural when you apply it. I had to do more than one coat to get the color I wanted so there is a lot of control. Stain lasted for a few hours. Was great.

light tent

This adds a very light tent to your lips. I like a lip color with just a bit more tent or color.

I've tried lip and cheek stains in the past that were similar to this product and I didn't like them. However, I really like this one because it is more of a gel, than a liquid. The gel stain is easier to apply.

Color pop
Sampled

I was intimidated by the color at first, but it's much more subtle on the lips. My lips did dry out quickly despite having Chapstick on first. I loved the pop of color though!

Surprised

I've personally never used a lip stain before but it wasn't difficult or messy to put on. I'm a fair skin color and it showed up nicely on my cheeks as well. Not too bright but you could tell it was there.

Liked the color it gave, but it didn't stick around for as long as I'm used to with my normal lip color.
