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.

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

Nice Surprise
Sampled

I was looking at the packaging upon arrival thinking that the color was too bright, too dramatic for me. But I put the stain on my lips and was pleasantly surprised. The color was soft, like a lip gloss, but had a great, moist texture. The applicator also doesn't drip or make a mess. This is a pretty cool product.

I really liked this product. It was just enough color but not too much for everyday use. Can't wait for more colors.

love this stain
Sampled

This was by far my favorite product in this box. The color and staying power were perfect. It was natural looking for and had a smoothing sort of blurry effect that didn't look like a dry stain. Love that it didnt bleed like other stains.
