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.

Great

This stuff is great! Nice and subtle on the lips and cheeks with one application. Very pretty and natural looking on my cheeks. It's like a lip gloss applicator which makes it easy to apply to both lips and cheeks. I would definitely buy a full size.

Not my favorite
Sampled

Not my favorite product. Very small and sticky. If I am going to wear a red lip, I want it to be bold. This was not. I would not buy.

Like, don't love

As a lip stain, this is great! It's a beautiful color, and lasts a decent amount of time. But it advertises that it can be used as blush as well, and that it should be blended quickly. I tried it as a blush and when I blended it, all the color lifted off onto my blending tool.

Well this really was not my color BUT I liked how smoothly the product went on. I would probably give it another try with a different color.

Looks and Feels Great

It smells good, it goes on really smooth, it stains (there for a while), and it looks amazing :)
The only thing thats odd is the texture, but worth it for the look.

Natural flushed lips

I use this almost every day now. It's a perfect just bitten stain for your lip that once dry, is completely weightless and smudgeproof. It has the consistency of a light gel going on, and absolutely no stickiness. It works alone when you're in a hurry, or with heavy eye makeup as a finishing touch.

Pretty Good
Sampled

I liked it and it stands out form a lot of lip stains and lipsticks. The color doesn't stay for quite as long as a traditional stain does, though.

Kinda Spotchy
Sampled

In order for the product to work correctly, it needs to be applied onto somewhat dry lips. It has a strange radiant feel while you have it on, and kinda sticky. Lasts pretty long though.
