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 had high hopes for this product, but while it added little color to my lips it didn't last long. it felt a little sticky and dry. Nice color though while it lasted. I actually liked it better as a cheek stain although it was a little difficult to put it on smoothly.

Great gloss!

The color looks vampy, but it is a perfect compliment.

I was interested in trying this product. I don't wear it cheek or lip stains often, but I have tried a few. I tried it first on the cheeks and it didn't seem to show any color, I didn't want to put on a lot because it felt a little sticky. Then I tried it for the lips and again no color really showed and it was so light. I don't think I'll be purchasing.

Works well
Sampled

It works well it stains your lips like it says. If you like a sheer product I think you will like this. Just make sure your lips aren't dry or it will stain the dry patches more. It also blends out really well so you can tint your cheeks with it too. The only reason I won't really use it is because I don't really like gel-like cheek products and I like bold lip colors not just a tint.
But like I said the product works well and I tried it out it's just not for me.
I love the balm and was happy to see them in my birchbox this month.

Sticky

This gives your lips a sheer red tint which i liked, but it left my lips sticky and some how dry at the same time. Plus it smells really weird.

Beautiful - Not as dark as it looks
Sampled

Love this stuff, I'm officially hooked, i was always afraid to try it cuz it looked so dark but it's not at all, 2 coats and your lips are blushing with color, speaking of blush, it looks great on cheeks to, but feels a little sticky, i will def buy this!

The product is cute but it doesn't have a major effect or color difference when applied to your face
