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 love theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac. This stains your lips without leaving a weird feeling and does a good job at staying on for an extended period of time.

Love it
Sampled

I love a lip stain rather than a gloss or lipstick. This stain gives a bright, natural color and stays on for an hour or so.

Color good; dryness not

Over the color! The product seeps into lip lines if you have fine lines around your upper lip.

Lip stain wonder
Sampled

I love using this as an alternate formula for blush! Its light but stains enough to leave a nice tone of color.

Eh.

This product is kind of weird for me. I don't see it on my cheeks, and it feels like gel on my lips. It probably doesn't help that I have no clue how to use it.

This stain was mediocre at best. The color wasn't all that noticeable, the consistency was confusing, and it only lasts a couple hours. All in all, nothing to write home about.

subtle color
Sampled

it gives a subtle color that can worn everyday casually. no smell. it takes a while to dry and until it does is a little sticky. I wished it dried quicker, but i guess then it would be hard to use as a cheek color.

More lipstick

More lipstick. Seems like every box has one. Wish I could give a better review but I never use lip color. My daughter said it smelled really nice though, which would be a plus.

Not quite enough color

I love the idea of a lip and cheek stain but this one didn't have quite enough tint for me. Great color though

Alright product

I really liked the color however it was a thin formula and it didn't stay on too well. But I like that the color was build able while it lasted.
