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.

The texture of this stain was tacky. It was a shocking lip stain at first look, but it went on much more neutral than I thought it would. Maybe mine had been frozen? The consistency was just terrible.

Cool Product, Bad Color
Sampled

I like the idea of a lip stain, but this color is not my style. Besides that I think it's a decent product.

Nothing Special

The stain didn't seem like anything special. You couldn't really tell that I had it on.

Practically invisible!

This stain is for someone who is looking for an alternative to colored lip balm. The color is VERY sheer, even on the cheeks. The quality is nice, though!

Give a natural look
Sampled

This gives a natural looking lip and cheek stain and doesn't get on my teeth.

I think I don't get it
Sampled

I wasn't able to find a way to apply this stain that looked good on me. It was too pink for my cheeks. I liked the color on my lips but the taste was not great. I've used it as a base layer a few times but I haven't quite figured it out yet. Am I missing something?

Good product, but a bit too dark for me. Also a bit too sticky.
