theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac

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.

Very mild.
Sampled

This is a great stain if you want one that doesn't pack much of a punch. I was looking for something that was noticeable, but maybe it's just that my lips are naturally pretty pink already. It's a very mild stain.

First time using a lip stain. I really like the color. Haven't tried it on my cheeks yet.

Sticky and Sweet
Sampled

I was excited to try this sample because of its dual functionality (works on cheeks and lips) but found that it was to sticky / sweet to add to cheeks and even too much for my lips

Impressed

I never use cheek or lip stain, but was impressed with the wonders it did to my face and my look altogether after using.

Perfect Lip Stain
Sampled

This is the perfect lip stain! It dries quickly, it doesn't have a scent at all. I have red hair, and it still goes perfectly with my complexion which is hard to find! I love it!

Not my cup of tea...
Sampled

I think this is just not my style. I did try it on my lips and I think it would be great for lots of people I know but to bright for my taste. I was to scared to try it on my cheeks because I was afraid it would cause breakouts.

Fantastic
Sampled

This lip stain is perfect for my work-day lip. It goes on easily and stays put for hours while being a very subtle wash of color.

Did the job
Sampled

It stained well. I let the gel sit for about thirty seconds and then wiped off. It left a good stain behind.

Pretty!
Sampled

Very pretty color. It looks really dark, but goes on sheer. You need to be careful to apply evenly otherwise you will have some darker spots on your lips. Overall, good product!

I am not a big fan of stain products, but this one was not as drying as I have found others to be in the past. I would have preferred a color that was not as bold, but overall the product did was it claimed.
