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.

Nice product, not too red. Very natural, adding a pleasant color.

I've tried this product previously, but I'm glad to have received my own sample. I love it! I'm almost out of it so I may hit Kohl's to see if there are any other colors I might like better. I think this a great option for a natural flush!

I liked the product but I thought that it was a bit too goopy and sticky for my taste. I felt like my lips were a bit dry and sticky at the same time.

I seriously love this product so much. It's probably the best thing I've discovered as a result of my Birchbox subscription. Easy to apply, long lasting and such a great shade <3

Lip stain newbie

I don't use lip stain but after sampling this, I see why its a thing. The color stayed on my lips for a good amount of time and when I wanted it to come off it did. I would buy this product full size.
