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.

It's alright, the shade is really similar to something that I got in another birchbox so I don't know if I'll be using it.

So great!!!!

It makes my cheeks look so pretty and buoyant, it looks more natural instead of when I cover my face with foundation.

Long lasting!

I absolutely loved this product! It was easy to apply, dried quickly on my lips, and gave my lips that perfect hint of color - nothing over powering and more natural looking. I never got nervous that when I was eating or drinking that it was going to smear, nor did I have to reapply too often throughout the day. I didn't try it on my cheeks as a blush at all, but I would highly recommend it if you're looking for something with a hint of color that is long lasting!

Not for me

I don't do bright or deep lip colors so I eye roll when I get these. I do try them and toss them in the pile of never to be used.

Not bad

As far as lip stain goes, it pretty natural looking. Makes it look like you've just eaten a red Popsicle or something like that. I like that you can layer it for your desired shade. I don't like the stickiness, and it doesn't last very long.

Love the color of this product. It's got a natural but sexy look to it. Super easy appliance on the lips. Have not yet tried it on my cheeks however but from what I tried so far I think it will be very easy. Lasted all day too!!

Left my lips feeling sticky and the color ended up being blotchy.

A subtle color for those kinds of days. Applies nicely and the texture is nice. Color lasts a while too.

Light Touch

Goes on like a gloss but sinks in like a stain. The visual result is more of a tint. Not a huge fan of this one, but nice for a casual slip of a lip.
