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 absolutely adore this lip and cheek stain, its a lot lighter than it appears in the tube, so it adds just the right amount of color. My lips are very pigmented so this is perfect for me. It's also long wearing and blends very easily.

wasn't impressed

I got this in my March Birchbox. I probably won't buy the full size just because I'm not a big fan of using it as a blush. It doesn't go on as bright as it looks, which is good, but still only a little bit of this product is needed. I like the color it gives my lips also it does apply a little bit uneven, so you kind of have to rub it in.

Gel stain

This product is very similar to the lip stain that I received in my January box; it is not effective at all. Instead of being watery, this is a gel that when you apply, instantly goes away. It is also not red but a bright fuchsia pink that I wouldn't want on my cheeks

Great Lip Product

I have never tried a lip stain before, but this product is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! I plan on buying this in the future for sure! It was not messy, does a fantastic job, and is very minimal in effort. Love it!

Eh

I'm not a fan of multi use stains and this was no exception. It leaves no color at all on cheeks, and does leave a pink hue on lips but the color is uneven.

This product was okay, I found if to be to sticky and smelled odd. It does do what it says, it is a good lip stain, but just not very comfortable for my liking.

I love stains but...
Sampled

I really wanted this to be great. The good features were that the color is nice, no bad taste and it was easy to use. But I want more color and more staying power.

Interesting

the stain is very subtle. Like the look you get after drinking a red slushy. I would like to try it in another color. It is also very gelatin like.

Nice lip stain

This is the second lip stain I have received with Birch box, and it has a nice subtle rosy color. Goes on smoothly, doesn't last too long but looks nice while it lasts!

I am absolutely in love with this stuff! I am a low key girl when it comes to makeup, especially my lips. This is easy application and I don't have to think about it again for a while. It dries quick and I forget that it is on. Love it!
