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.

theBalm Captures My Heart Again

The Stainiac lip stain that so received this month is a perfect size for traveling. The color is beautiful and works well with my skin tone. It's not too heavy or bright and works well when wearing it casually or out to a dinner party with friends and family. The formula is not as sticky as other lip stains which I love because I don't notice I'm wearing it as a whole and my lips don't make that weird peeling sound/feel lip they are ripping apart every time I open my mouth.

theBalm cosmetics is a great cosmetics line that I, personally, love. The packaging is interesting and creative and I have yet to have a truly awful experience with any of their products. I definitely will buy more of their products in the future.

Awesome Lipstain
Sampled

I don't ususally wear color on my lips and when I saw how red it was I thought "no way" I was so wrong. This stuff is awesome, just a hint of color but now I can clearly see lips. It is perfect I amamazed. Will definitely order in the future.

Too light
Sampled

The product is OK, but too light, didn't really leave a stain on my fair skin.

Stainiac lip and cheek balm is so so for me.
Sampled

I love the shade of Stainiac lip and cheek balm I was given to try in my Birchbox, but it dries too light. It makes my lips feel dry, so I have to add lip balm or gloss over the product, which defeats the purpose for me. I'm probably not going to buy this product or recommend it, due to these factors. Neat concept and it is a cute cheek color, I guess I will use it for my cheeks rather than as a lip stain. I would give it 3 stars.

very light stain
Sampled

the product looks like gelatin and applies very lightly. its a good light flush of color that doesn't look blotchy, very natural tone. on me it caused a slight tingle to my lips and made them look and feel fuller.

Great for lips
Sampled

I really liked this product. You can use it for your cheeks or for your lips. I wear a lot of makeup so I like to use it on my lips for a natural look. It would probably work great for someone who doesn't wear a lot of makeup it's a great natural look.

nice but I'l pass
Sampled

While I like the product for lips I don't get recommending it for blush. it's not all that bendable so it looks splotchy and really didn't work for me on my cheeks

I love The Balm
Sampled

I was surprised to receive this product. I had heard of it, but I'm not really into stains. I was pleasantly surprised to find I liked it. It has a nice coverage that you can build.

Great, subtle lip stain
Sampled

I am someone who usually wears a natural lip but am always searching for a little bit of color. I'm a die hard lip balm addict who is always looking for ways to add a little color and this is it. You can apply your normal lip balm right over the top of this with no color transfer. While it looks more red in the tube, on your lips its more of a pink color. Great for when you want a splash of color without wearing lipstick. Longevity could be better but overall its a good product
