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.

This color is great, if only it lasted a little longer. The stain is great though and definitely stays on through most of the day

I've used better...
Sampled

Not a big fan of this product. I like this brand; however, this product doesn't show up very well and doesn't last for more than a few minutes.

Not very pigmented
Sampled

I understand that this product is supposed to add just a small touch of pigment, which it does, but it wipes off almost immediately

Good product
Sampled

I love this product but I must admit, I do not like stains. I've owned thus product before and actually thrown it out because although it is a great stain, again, I do not like stains! If you are a fan, you'll love this product. And this brand is wonderful...cruelty free, paraben free, etc.

Pretty good stain
Sampled

So i have a lot of lip stains and im not sure if i just dont know how to put it on or what, but they always appear uneven and/or cracked. This stain didnt dry me out or anything like that so that is a plus. The color is very vibrant too.

I was super excited about this sample.....but it barely showed up and it was super sticky, leaving my lips feeling really uncomfortable.

Lip and cheek tint
Sampled

As a lip tint it barely showed up until I put about 4-5 layers on. Once it actually started to have color it was very pretty but the taste/consistency and overall feel of it on my lips was awful. Then when I put it on my cheek it didn't blend at all. I was basically pulling it down my skin with my fingers which I think may have actually made it look worse.

Great stain
Sampled

This really held up after talking throughout the day and eating a meal. Great color- I feel like it would go well with lots of different skin tones.
