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 liked it at first because it seemed like an easy way to get a little color on your lips quickly. The color is just enough but not too much (think kid who just ate a red Popsicle) the problem is it doesn't last. For me it seemed to wear unevenly as well leading to one of my lips looking darker than the other...not cute. Kinda gave up on using it on my lips and have just been using it as a cheek stain now.

I really liked this product. It give a very light tint and drys extremely quick.

I liked this product, I used it as a lip gloss but didn't try as a stain for my cheeks even though you can. I liked that it wasn't too glossy and it stained and set well. The color was a bit darker than what I typically use but it wasn't too dramatic.

Ho hum lip stain

Has good mouthfeel, no weird smell or taste, but it did not last. A stain should stay and stain. This was basically a matte balm. The good news is it was not suck the life dry out of your lips like some stains can do. I did not try it on cheeks....

If lip-stains were my thing- this isn't one I would use much, if at all. The color is very magenta-y pink & doesn't work on my end-of-the-winter pale, olive, skin.

Good for short term!
Sampled

This product has such a nice color and sets in really nicely. It's not a sticky or heavy- it does just what it says and it stains your lips! But it doesn't last for long, so you have to re-apply quite a lot!

Good stain, wish it was a little darker
Sampled

This stain is much less drying than any I've ever tried. It also gives even color. I just wish it was a little darker. I also don't love the taste, but it is still one of the best stains I've ever tried.

not the best..
Sampled

i have enjoyed past samples from the balm and was excited to see this in this months box, that was until i tried it on.. it took quite a bit of product to build up some color. i wouldn't mind that so much, if it didn't start to feel a bit on the sticky side..
