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.

Doesn't do anything for me
Sampled

I tried to put it on and I just don't see a difference, maybe the sample I got is not good, it goes on smooth, the sample you get is great to be able to really try it out, it just didn't make a difference for me.

Nice color
Sampled

I gave this to my preteen daughter and light enough for her to use. Not good to use if you have chapped lips though. Stayed on all day...

Cool lip stain!

Great lip stain. Not bold, just subtle like I like. The color is slightly off for my taste.

TheBalm makes great products. As with any lipstain, make sure you exfoliate your lips first. This is a really nice product.

Great color!

I love the color of this stain, and how smooth and easy it went on my lips. I just wish the color would have lasted longer. I had to apply it several times in one day.

Overall product is nice but so not my color. Stayed on lips for a long time. Never tried it on my cheeks.
