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!

Pretty good!

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 would choose this over lipstick any day. It gives my lips a great color without being waxy.

Not my favorite

Goes on clumpy and doesn't give much color. Doesn't last. Seems a bit watery. I won't purchase this lip stain. I do like the applicator. I liked the color just wasn't vibrant enough.

Nice color

I really like it and it is not at all gookey or sticky. It stains your lips and stays. No scent

This product is ok. I feel like you need a lot for it to really show up on your cheeks.
