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.

You have to apply several coats...I use a similar lip stain by Younique that I like much better. I application and you are good to go!

Easy to apply without requiring too much effort or skill. The color builds well and lasted even through eating and drinking. The stain on lips lasted probably about three hours total.

Great shade

I normally use only light glosses so I gave this to my daughter and it looks phenomenal on her. Just like the swatch online and I like the consistency and the fact it's a stain and gives a nice natural pop of color.

Decent Lip Stain/Cheek Color
Sampled

Love the color of this lip stain and cheek color. Not sure how well it worked as a cheek color for me, but will definitely use it for a lip stain.

I do not really understand why people are so excited about this product. It did not work for me...sticky and colorless. There are much better options.

Not so much for Blush
Sampled

I get the bonus of just having one product be two things but I'm not a big blush girl. I'm usually always a bit red in the cheeks so I don't need help there. That being said I love a lip stain. I thought this was a nice color and I like the feel of it. Anyone who's tried a few lip stains knows they can be tricky. I'd give this one a thumbs up.

Not for me.

I prefer to use cheeck product and lip product separately. Too sticky for cheeks. Too shear for lips.

For some reason none of the stains I have ever used have been effective. Gave this one a shot and found the same to be true.
