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.

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.

Just not a stain kinda gal...

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.

Interesting product
Sampled

This isn't something that I think I'll use on a regular basis but it seems like a good product. Was reluctant to even try at first, having received a similar product recently in one of my monthly boxes that turned out to be a hot mess that ended up every where including the bathroom counter. This however was very easy to apply & not messy. And much to my surprise, the color is very subdued compared to what you'd expect looking at the sample. It's just not something I see myself using or adding to my rather simple routine.

So-so

I love the idea of a lip stain, but this one just doesn't last like I'd like it to. It is very moisturizing, and does leave some good pigment, but it comes right off. Nice try, but no cigar.

Great product

Not a fan of the color and also made my lips feel dry but it did have a noticeably different tint . I put a clear gloss over it and it was perfect

I've used this on my cheeks over and over since I received it. The color is perfect and subtle for daytime wear!

I loved to use this product on my cheeks whenever I wanted a simple but cute look. The color blended so well with my skin tone.
