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 love this color and the product would be great if not for the sticky texture. It left my lips feeling gross.

good balm

I like that this stain is not too heavy and is true to the color. It lasts a long tim as well. I did receive this in my birch box twice in less than 6 months though. Same color and everything. Don't love that.

Doesn't last long
Sampled

I like stains, but this one didn't last very long. I put it on before I went to a movie and it was pretty much gone from eating popcorn and drinking pop when I was done. It dried to be not sticky though so that was good.

Hint of color
Sampled

If you're looking for a deep color or more of a lipstick type color then this is not for you but if you want a natural pink colored lip then this product is perfect for you.

Love love

I absolutely adore this lip and cheek stain, its a lot lighter than it appears in the tube, so it adds just the right amount of color. My lips are very pigmented so this is perfect for me. It's also long wearing and blends very easily.

wasn't impressed

I got this in my March Birchbox. I probably won't buy the full size just because I'm not a big fan of using it as a blush. It doesn't go on as bright as it looks, which is good, but still only a little bit of this product is needed. I like the color it gives my lips also it does apply a little bit uneven, so you kind of have to rub it in.

Gel stain
Sampled

This product is very similar to the lip stain that I received in my January box; it is not effective at all. Instead of being watery, this is a gel that when you apply, instantly goes away. It is also not red but a bright fuchsia pink that I wouldn't want on my cheeks

Great Lip Product
Sampled

I have never tried a lip stain before, but this product is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! I plan on buying this in the future for sure! It was not messy, does a fantastic job, and is very minimal in effort. Love it!

Eh

I'm not a fan of multi use stains and this was no exception. It leaves no color at all on cheeks, and does leave a pink hue on lips but the color is uneven.

Thebalm Lip Stain

This product was okay, I found if to be to sticky and smelled odd. It does do what it says, it is a good lip stain, but just not very comfortable for my liking.
