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 really wanted to like this because I like just a touch of color but it didn't really look like anything stained my lips. Any color that did apply was gone quickly. I didn't really care for the texture either.

Decent product

It didn't do much as a blush or lip stain as I didn't find it dark enough

Nice alternative to lipstick and pretty color! Doesn't have much staying power even after several layers

But I absolutely loved this one. It actually gave a great glow just above the cheek bones so it was great

Brightened-up Lips
Sampled

Liked the product alone. It brightened up my dull lips if I didn't want to wear gloss for lipstick. Tried wearing it under my lipstick and it was a fail.

Good color

I use this as cheek color, and am very impressed with how it blends. It's not as bright as it appears in the container, and a few dots work into a natural-looking blush when applied and blended in.

I am in general not a fan of stains, I wish I was as I get tired of reapplying lipstick. I just don't like the way it feels or looks on my lips.

Love the color. It's subtle but a nice punch. Looks good as lip color or blush

Nice tint!
Sampled

I tend to stay away from lip stains but I really like this one because it's not too dark and is really just a perfect tint and hue. Really nice if you like lip products!!
