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'm a redhead so red lipsticks/glosses don't go well with my complexion.

Did not work for me
Sampled

This "stain" barely showed up on my lips at all. It has a very sticky consistency when applied and comes off basically right after you put it on. I will not be purchasing.

Nice, but too pale
Sampled

I like it because it's not a powder blush, but I have a cream blush I prefer to use, and received a similar sample in a recent birchbox.

Not bad
Sampled

It works nice and it's not bad, I wasn't a fan of the application and color as a cheek tint but it was nice for lips.

Nice stain, not for me

I received a sample of this product in my Birchbox and think that it's a nice stain. I'm not a huge fan of the color, so I passed it on to my sister.

Love Stainiac!

Didn't think I would like this.....because it was RED! However, it is a light lip stain that added some great color to my lips! Really like it!

Not what I expected :-(

I was excited to try this brand since my friends were raving about it. However, I was very disappointed when I applied the stain. The color was very light. It was definitely not that bloody red I was thinking about. Worst part of my experience with this product was the stickiness of the stain. My lips felt very dry and sticky even after I wiped it off my lips. Not happy.

This stain is pretty and long-lasting. It does sheer out nicely.
