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 have actually sampled this before and it is pretty great! The color is just right and lasts a decent amount of time. The only thing is that until it soaks in or what ever it is stick and the texture is weird. Also, the smell is slightly more chemical, but like a lip balm type chemical. I approve of this!

This stain is definitely lighter in color than most stains, but still not the shade for me. They all tend to be too bright. This one doesn't 'stain' as long as most stains.

Great color

This has turned out to be perfect as a primer to my lipstick, but doesn't hang around long enough or is cost effective enough for me to seriously consider buying in the future.

I love the color on my lips gives such a cute tiny! I haven't tried it on my cheeks a little nervous to try that but definitely loved the way it feels on my lips!

I liked the way this product looked on me, however, it's really not something I'd use in my everyday routine.

I really wanted to love this product, but it was very drying and smelled horrible.

Loved it!

I wasn't sure about the color at first. I thought it was going to be way too bright for me but it was just a tint of red. It went perfect with my skin tone and it didn't have the heavy feeling like a lip gloss, which was a major plus!

Wonderful Natural Stain
Sampled

I thought this would be intense like other stains, but it is really natural and pretty with just chap stick over it for day time. Layer more for night and maybe a lipstick. Really liked this product and it wasn't drying at all!
