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.

First time trying a stain.....
Sampled

Was thrilled to get this in my box, the application is pretty straight forward. I did get a little bleeding toward the edge of my lips. It looked like I put berry juice on my lips after. the smell is good and the taste is yummy. I didn't notice it stay super well.

I love love love this lip tint.
Sampled

I love this so much that when the sample runs out I am going to buy. I think it's cute and fun and it actually makes my lips feel really smooth and soft. definitely something to have in you purse at all times.

It was alright
Sampled

I really like the subtle aspect of this stain. It's really soft and not overwhelming, although the color didn't last long for me. The texture was rather smooth for me which I liked.

Barely there
Sampled

The color did not evenly distribute on my lips, and barely showed on my cheeks once I rubbed it in. Repeated applications didn't seem to build the color. Disappointed.

not for use on lips
Sampled

this was listed as a stain that could be used on lips. it's definitely very 'sticky' or 'tacky' and dries your lips out instantly. i would not recommend for lips.

Not their best lip product
Sampled

I'm a balm fanatic but this in one of their products that I just don't love like I love some other things they make. Sticky and not much color payoff yet can't really build it because then it gets patchy.

Doesn't last
Sampled

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.

Stainiac
Sampled

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.
