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. 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.

Okay product but feels a little sticky. Not a fan of the color.

Wasn't impressed
Sampled

I wasn't impressed. I wanted to like it as I love a good stain. But I didn't feel like it has much "staining" power.

Too sticky
Sampled

I liked the packaging of this product and that's about the only thing. It's way too sticky to put onto my lips let alone my cheeks!

Not worth it
Sampled

So i guess it tints your lips a little but not much and it doesn't last very long. I wouldn't spend money on this.

Nice concept

Decent execution. However, the color felt a bit teenage to me.

The color was dramatic for my taste. But it was effective. Not used to the gel consistancy

it's ok

I wasn't a fan of the color or the smell, I don't think it's something I'd wear and it's not much different than any other lip stain.
