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.

I'm really not a fan of lip stains but I love the Balm products so I figured I'd give it a try. I really like how the product goes on and it doesn't dry out your lips as much as some stains do. The color is ok, a little loud. Not my favorite product from The Balm, but not bad!

This product did not show up well on my lips at all. I did not really care for it.

I thought the lip stain was runny. I also do not like red lip stain. I will not buy this

I've tried quite a few different lip stains, and haven't found one I enjoyed, but I had a positive experience with this one & it's a nice color!

It was alright. Kind of a bright color for my skin color so I only use it much.

Good stain

I used this on my cheeks and didn't use a lot at first so it wasn't really noticeable. But when I used more it was too dark ( I have very fair skin). But I liked it on my lips and it really lasts. It is typical of stains though in that it is drying.

I absolutely loved this lip stain! I liked that it wasn't too thick so I could layer it on.

You have to apply several coats...I use a similar lip stain by Younique that I like much better. I application and you are good to go!
