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.

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
Sampled

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.

Lovely color, sticky application
Sampled

I love stains and love this color. The application is easy, but the finish is a bit sticky. It's tolerable with a quick swipe of chapstick over the top.

The Perfect Color
Sampled

This color is just pure joy. I love the pigmentation and how easily the stain sits on your lips. It is a perfect size to place in your purse and doubles as a cheek stain when you want a quick double-use product on the go. The color stays and looks divine.

Light, pretty color for lips and cheeks
Sampled

I love, love, love this product. I definitely need it in a couple more colors, though the sample color gives me a perfect flushed-cheek, just-kissed look that is light and fun. I immediately put it in my purse for those quick lip and blush touch-ups on-the-go. I was worried about a greasy feel that I get from a lot of gel lip/cheek colors, but the product is extremely light and blends really easily. I can't think of a single negative thing to say!
