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.

Not for me
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of lip stains. They tend to wear off in certain places and then my lips just look blotchy.

Better When Tan
Sampled

I am just returning from vacation and have nice skin color. This product actually works very well on my cheeks. It stays on my lips well too.

Blah
Sampled

I did not like the color at all...also did not like the texture on my lips. I felt it dried them out.

Not effective for Me
Sampled

I was hopefully about this product, anything that could have multiple uses (lips/cheeks) would be welcome and free up space in my purse. But I tried it on both my lips and cheeks and I noticed such a small difference that I haven't used it again. The consistency while applying is thick and sticky, which does disappear after it dries. But on my cheeks it was unnoticeable and lips was minimal. I'm not sure if it's just my skin tone and/or the tint I received. This one didn't work for me.

Decent Product
Sampled

This lip product is a fun color, but I found that it didn't last for a super long time. Also, it was sometimes splotchy if I wasn't super careful while applying.

My favorite lip stain!
Sampled

I really love this product. It leaves more of a reddish hue behind, so it looks very natural and is something I can wear every day. Also, it doesn't dry my lips out, or leave behind yucky streaks!

New favorite! Perfect shade! And stays on great when eating and drinking! LOve using it with a sheer lip gloss! Even makes my lips feel smother:)

Like it for lips, not for cheeks
Sampled

The lip stain is subtle and not too bright. I didn't like it as a cheek stain compared to my normal powder blush.

pink and gloopy
Sampled

I like the idea of this product, but in practice, it was gloopy going on and the pink didn't seem quite right.

Nice surprise
Sampled

I though the color would be too red but it's a perfect rosy pink/red for my pale skin.
