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.

Love not having to wear lipstick. This stain looks very natural.

Give a natural look
Sampled

This gives a natural looking lip and cheek stain and doesn't get on my teeth.

I think I don't get it
Sampled

I wasn't able to find a way to apply this stain that looked good on me. It was too pink for my cheeks. I liked the color on my lips but the taste was not great. I've used it as a base layer a few times but I haven't quite figured it out yet. Am I missing something?

Good product, but a bit too dark for me. Also a bit too sticky.

Lip stain love
Sampled

The color of the lip stain doesn't show up well, but I like that it's not super sticky like other lip stains, and it lasts for a good amount of time

Not worth it
Sampled

I don't really use lip stains much, but I gave this one a try. The texture was kind of sticky and weird and I didn't notice much of an effect. I guess my lips looked a little brighter, but I would not purchase the full size of this.

I love the idea of this and really wanted to like it. Unfortunately it doesn't show up on me at all. Texture is nice for a stain. It just doesn't stain...
