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.

My lip stain was dried out, and mostly clumpy bits of gel. It left a very faint stain, and I'm not sure if it's because I didn't get a good one or if its the product itself.

Liked the product, color is great. At first when seeing the color, I wasn't sure about it until I tried it.

Great lip stain, doesn't look unnatural. Doesn't get gummy or weird and doesn't smudge/ I really love this product a lot

I use this product as a cheek stain. It is the only blush that has stayed on my face during my work day!

Nice color

I like this as a lip stain, wasn't crazy about it on my cheeks. It dries fast, and stays put. It gives my lips a natural flush, like I just ate a cherry popsicle. I will likely purchase once my sample runs out. You don't need much product so it may last me a while.

Great application, color and wear. Easy to apply and lasts all day. Found that it was a better stain for cheeks than lips for long wearing. Great when you want to add some color, but not a lot of makeup.

Pretty in pink!

I loved this lip stain! I love its versatility..the fact that you can use it on both lips and cheeks! The color is perfect for my complexion. After applying it to my lips I noticed a bit of sheen and just the right color of pink. I used it on my cheeks and the color seemed a little darker but I think it worked pretty well! Overall I would definitely buy this product in the near future!

It has nice feel and it left a nice soft color but I felt it didn't last very long at all :-(

this product was okay but it smeared and rubbed off of my cheeks and didn't last on my lips
