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.

Great stain
Sampled

I really love this lip & cheek stain. Just the right amount of color that lasts for hours and it's very easy to apply. I'm totally going to buy it.

It was a pretty color on my cheeks, I'd never used a cheek stain before but I ended up really liking this, and then I started breaking out on my cheeks. I stopped using this and the breakouts went away. It's a really pretty color but maybe not the best for really sensitive skin like mine.

interesting

I liked it. Had not seen this before or used. Will need to use it more to see how it will look overall.

great for a natural or bold look
Sampled

I had never tried a lip stain before but i'm hooked. I love a natural lip color and one coat of this makes your lips look a really pretty natural pink, it's great.

This stain didn't really show up on my already pretty dark colored lips...just not for me. I did like the texture though - the water base felt really light - not gooey & heavy like others I've tried.

too much
Sampled

I felt like it dried so quick that it just looked like too much caked on my face. I will not purchase this.

Perfect shade
Sampled

I have never used a lip stain before, so was a little hesitant to try. I loved how smooth it felt going on. The stickiness didn't bother me while it was drying, but was just a little weird since I have never used a stain before. I loved the color. It looked really dark in the tube, but was the perfect shade when I put it on. The only thing that I really didn't like was that after an hour it started to fade drastically in the center of my lips, leaving what looked like that I had used a dark lip liner around my lips and never filled it in.

It works
Sampled

The stain color is pretty. But the stain doesnt last as long as other brands. It is a little bit of a different texture than other brands but its not bad. Ill definitely keep using the sample, still unsure if its something I could pay full price for.

Just Ok

Goes on nice but doesn't stay on long.The texture is fine - not too thick. Leaves the lips more pink than red.

Doesn't dry out lips and gives them perfect color! The sample size is great for multiple uses.
