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.

Great!

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.

Light coverage

This is not a long lasting product but I really liked the way it looked. It just drains your lips a few shades darker than they usually are. You can put on a few layers to darken.

Just ok

I was super impressed with this product. I don't normally use stains so I didn't know what to expect. It didn't deliver much color

Good for lip
Sampled

I use this when I want a subtle hint of color on my lips. I don't care for this as a blush, but it's nice for layering or as a base for red lips without the bold statement. Product is hard to get on at first but once it's on it sticks fairly well. Overall decent product.
