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.

I liked the hint of color but it seemed uneven and kind of hard to apply correctly

Very Pretty!!

I wasn't sure what to do with the stain after receiving it. After trying the sample I'm in love with the product. I liked this product more on my cheeks than on my lips. It gave my cheeks a nice and natural blush but didn't do much of my lips.

A Hint of Natural Saturation
Sampled

With a stroke, a smooth gel covers and stains your lips. There is no punch of color, simply a strong hint of color that glides onto your lips and easily blends in. Definetly recommend.

It's a miss for me

The color is barely noticeable, and when I put it on my cheeks, it left a gel like residue behind. Unpleasant.

This product was alright, it didn't really wow me. I had to do a couple of layers to get the color to show up.

eh

doesn't show that easily on the lips. I had to apply a lot of times to get a little bit of a tint to my lips. on my cheeks it felt very uncomfortable to put wet liquid on my cheeks so I would recommend sticking to blush instead of this product
