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'm not wild about lip stains to begin with, and this seemed very sticky to me. I wasn't a huge fan.

Decent

This stain is very moisturizing. I didn't find it to stain my lips very well, though. More useful on my cheeks but felt kind of weird and sticky.

Good Lip Stain
Sampled

I was pretty happy with this product. It dried fairly quickly and gave a nice wash of color. Not super long-lasting for a stain, but it does give lips a nice wash of color.

I love this lip stain. It doesn't stain your teeth and it dries to where you can't even tell you have anything on your lips at all!! Amazing huh??? Try it today!!

Dries fast, looks great

I really liked this stain because it was a subtle color, and it stayed on almost all night. It also dried fast on my lips, then I could hardly tell it was there.

Went on sheer so thankfully it wasn't as dark as I thought. Didn't dry my lips out either. Perfect with a lip all over it, it lasted all day.

Stains lips , slightly drying

Does a good job staining the lips. It is a bit drying and comes off after a while. I have used stronger stains in the past from other companies.

I use this product as a base to whatever lipstick I'm using that day. It doesn't last all day but it's a great product!!

I'm not big on lipsticks or stains, but this was amazing! It gave just enough color to my lips for a natural look!
