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.

This is a good lip product. I suppose this review is somewhat meh because I have so many lip products. While I like this fine, I don't see what makes it stand out.

Not for me
Sampled

Although this product seems nice and seems like a high quality product it is just not really for me. I wouldn't really use this on my cheeks, but did try it on my lips. The color is very light and I am pretty fair skinned and could not really even tell I had it on. Overall it is a quality product, but it is just not for me.

Didn't work like a stain
Sampled

I was expecting the product to be a bit thicker in consistency and act more like an actual lip stain than what it did. It went on like a very thin gloss and isn't the consistency I prefer for my lip products.

Okay, but

I thought the shade of the sample I received was okay, although I don't usually wear red. after applying, my lips still felt wet for a while, which I really don't like.

Fun, Bright, Red

I enjoyed this stain, tho I thought it was a bit strong for my lips. My lips actually dried out from the stain. If I put a moisturizer on my lips first, it would be better for me. Super fun color and this is a new and fun brand for me to find.

To many coats
Sampled

getting my first box I was not that impressed with any of my products. this was my most used. however it took so many coats to even get the color to show and then wasn't even a nice color I wouldn't buy this product for any one looking for a stain it took so many layers and didn't even stay on that long.

Absolutely love

Stanzas balm is easy and light and the size of the sample for me was preferred! It's nice to be able to put this tiny life saver in your pocket when you're on the go, thank you!

Stain: a great middle ground
Sampled

I have never tried a stain before. I like that it doesn't feel heavy like a lipstick, but seems to stay longer than a gloss. And it is colored where a Chapstick or balm isn't. I really like having this in my beauty toolbox.

Works well!

I love the color! It's not too dark, just a nice even color if you're looking for something a bit fancy for the day.
