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.

Smooth with a gel consistency

The product doesn't last all day but the color is great. when you apply it the consistency is like a gel but it is very smooth.

Better for your cheeks than lips

I really love the color when I first apply it to my lips it is very natural looking and adds a pretty tint to them. The problem is that it wears off within an hour and you have to keep reapplying to hold the color. I want a lip stain that is low maintenance and doesn't require much reapplication and this is not that. The color stays a but longer if used on your cheeks and blended out. I will continue to use on my cheeks but bummed it doesn't stay longer on my lips.

This stain was so perfect. It gave a really pretty red stain to your lips that looked put together but not over the top. I tried it out on my cheeks too, but it was hard to blend.

First thing I noticed when applying it was the weird texture it had (jelly like), second the smell wasn't too pleasing, thirdly it had a weird taste when I would lick my lips, and lastly it doesn't last very long. The old thing I did like was the shade it was a nice sheer pinky tone.

Very natural

The color is very natural. I use this first then Chapstick and it looks like I'm barely wearing makeup. Perfect to wear to work!

I've tried benefit too and I am just not into it. It did okay with the lips but I wasn't blown away

This is the SECOND time I have received this product and I still don't like it. It goes on so dry on the lips and I really don't want to "stain" my face with the hope that I get it perfect the first time. No thank you.
