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 thought this product would be similar to other lip tints that I've tried, but unfortunately, it is not. It has a gel texture which I do not mind. The problem is, the tint is barely there. It is just not a product that I would buy even though I love the brand.

I liked it

I Like this product especially in the color beauty queen. The only thing I do not like about this product is the taste. Although it only stains your lips The taste lingers.

I liked the color but was disappointed that it had a very flat finish. Pretty color, just needed to be longer lasting. Maybe it's just my skin type.

Not a Favorite

I chose to use this product as a lip stain. The color was a little too red for my skin tone. I did not like the taste on my lips. I will say I think it is a good stain because it would not wipe off like lipstick.

Great for a 20 year old

The color was very vibrant. The shade was a bit too youthful for me.

I really liked it. I am not one for heavy makeup. I prefer makeup you forget you are wearing. Light and not smothering. This was just right.

High hopes
Sampled

I had high hopes for this lip stain but I felt really let down. The smell is good, the color is just right, however, I was very disappointed in the staying power. When I first put this on my lips I really liked how it looked, giving me that just ate a popsicle look but that didn't last. I only drank water but I immediately noticed transfer marks on my glass and when I was finished with it I looked in the mirror and it was complete gone. It looked like I had never put anything on my lips at all. So sad.

Getting There

While the stain wasn't perfect (left lips sticky and clumpy), the color and application was leaps and bounds above other lip stain samples I've tried. If it weren't for the texture, I would have purchased this one.
