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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

I liked the shade of this product but it was not the right color for me. It felt a little weird placing it on my cheeks because of it being wet.

Fun

Something about this reminded me of being a kid and trying to stain my lips with a red Popsicle. I actually liked this stain just for a quick pop of color but I prefer something a little more matte. I like that it's versatile too!

Very bright and vivid!
Sampled

I never wear lipstick or lipstain because of the mess it causes when I wipe it off. However when I do, I prefer bright colors that a user can tell they have lipstick on! This stayed on and I loved the color!

Love the color of this lip stain! It's just the right shade to put on every morning and it lasts throughout the first half of the day.

lovely stain
Sampled

thought this was great - the stain goes on very lightly but there's a clear color impact, and unlike some other stains it doesn't feel like i have anything on my lips at all. stayed on through lots of water drinking too!

I love this! Wish the sample was bigger... the color is fabulous. Just be sure to exfoliate the lips before applying for an even coverage.

too light
Sampled

I wanted to like this product, and I'm not typically one to typically wear lip color, but I felt like I wanted more. Even after a few layers, it just was not showing up as dark as I would have liked, and did not seem to last long.

I'd never heard of this brand before receiving it in my box but I'm loving it. It doesn't dry out my lips and isn't too dark or bright to use on my light complexion as a cheek stain. I would like a bit more color for my lips but overall I'm really enjoying this product
