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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

Nice product for lips and cheeks. Color is true and not clown like. Looks more "sun-kissed."

Its okay

The product did not work well with my medium /tan skin color. The color faded and did not last long. The color on darker lips looked too pink.

Meh

This product doesn't seem all that pigmented, it left a very faint sign of color. Not all that impressed.

Different than any lip product I've tried
Sampled

I've never used a gel-stain before, I was worried it would be messy and "goopy", it wasn't. It went on nicely and gave a good color without being too much. I was quite surprised and really like it.

Not really relevant to me

I don't really find a use for lip stains in my regimen, but I did try this, it's sticky and the color doest really last, I added glass over the top, didn't see much difference.

okay but not great

I am not a fan of lip stains, I prefer the all-day lipsticks instead. This one isn't bad, and I can use it underneath. Not a lot of color and it comes off easily.

Loved this stain!!! I'd never used a stain before & I think I love it more than lip stick!! It didn't last all day but I didn't mind reapplying it! Great color, won't kiss off, loved it!!!
