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.

I am very particular about lip stuff. This did not go on evenly. It did stain at first but did not last. The color was a bit unnatural for me and I wear almost all shades of red. Maybe because it was streaky? It was a no-go for this one.

LOVE IT!

Does not dry my lips out and stays on a long time. I was able to wear gloss on top of it without it coming off.

I wasn't really excited about using this product when I got it in my subscription, but i was actually very happy with the results. The stain was easy to apply, worked quickly and lasted through eating. Will definitely purchase after i run out!

Lovely color. Highly pigminted. Works great for lips and cheeks. Stayed on me all day long and into the night. I would recommend this.

Could be better!

When I first got this product I was a little unsure how to use it. I finally figured I would rub it on my check and then see how it did. The first time it just kind of turned my cheek red. I don't think it reminded me of how a blush should look. I guess that's why its called a cheek stain. Overall the product wasn't terrible but I am not sure I would recommend it to others.

Didn't love it

This product was just okay. I tried it on my lips and I liked how it went on soft and thin and it wasn't too sticky, however, it didn't do much at all! It needed something over it since it wasn't really red enough to wear as red lipstick. I leaned toward just using normal red lipstick instead. I also applied the products to my cheeks. This use of the product was a little bit better, however the color was a little too pink for my skin and I found it hard to blend it as "blush." With normal powder blush it's a lot easier to apply evenly. I ended up putting the stain on first, then adding powder blush to reduce the un-blendedness of it.

It is a very light stain and lasts a short time. If you are looking for something light and short lived this is it.

This lip color is cute and doesn't taste bad when you lick your lips.
