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.

Loved the sheerness of the color. As I get older, dark lipstick is difficult to wear. I can wear this darker shade since it is transparent .

Light and Airy

Love the color! it feels so light and does not add too much of a color, but just enough to put it on and feel good. It does taste kind of weird, but it goes away pretty quickly.

Lip stain

I loved this! Will definitely purchase. I first out lined my lips with a liner. Then filled them in with the stain. It lasted quite long. Even after eating and drinking. I also put a gloss on top for extra shine.

Meh...

I wasn't terribly impressed by this product. It doesn't seem to stay on the lips as long as one would expect considering the nod at "stain".

Smooth as Silk

My favorite thing about this lip stain is how it feels. The color that was delivered as a sample isn't a color that I would wear but I the texture and overall effectiveness is great.

Very Cool

I really thought this is a cool product. I used it on my lips, it says you can use it on cheeks but it seems too watery for that. Other than that I loved the color and moisture it gives.

I like this better than other items similar to this but it tends to settle in your fine lines.

Product did not "stain" as I thought and was gone before I left the house.

Not the best stain
Sampled

This is marketed as a stain, but I've had liquid lipsticks that stain my lips better. The color barely shows up and the texture was a miss. Not my favorite
