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.

Pretty good color but takes some layers
Sampled

I liked the shade and feeling of this stain, but it took several layers to get the color I wanted.

great!
Sampled

I usually hate any lip color/ stain, but this was so simple, easy and didn't leave marks. It was just enough to make my lips pop a bit, but not overbearing.

Better as a cheek stain
Sampled

I prefer using this as a cheek stain over a lip stain. On the cheeks, it leaves a nice rosy flush. The only thing I would suggest is working quickly to blend it out on the cheeks since it does set and stain quickly. I didn't really like using this on my lips because while it did tint my lips a really nice and natural rosy color, it leaves a sticky feeling on the lips and a weird taste.

Okay

Pretty good. I only use on lips not cheeks. I would like to try some other colors in the future. Maybe more of a pink.

Probably best stain out there
Sampled

I'm not a big fan of stains so I thought the product was okay. However, it gave a really nice soft tint to my lips and looked natural. It was also very buildable, didn't even feel like it was on my lips, and it was long wearing.

Loveable stain
Sampled

I'm a lip gloss/plumper/stain junkie, and while I like what I like, I'm adventurous enough to try new things anytime I have the chance. I like the color of this stain and plan to buy beyond the sample from my box!

I don't get it.
Sampled

I was not a fan of the idea of the product and I didn't like it in person either. I didn't like how it felt as a lipgloss or on my cheeks.

Pretty color, bad formula
Sampled

The colors pretty and if you like sheer lip color this is for you. I personally like liquid lipstick so I'm not a fan of this. Formula could be better. Reminds me of stuff you buy at the dollor store
