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 Lip Stain
Sampled

I really enjoy the lip stain. Gives a little color but doesnt leave lips sticky or dry. I like it when I need just a hint of color.

I love the color and I love the scent. Its a cute little tube that doesn't take up too much space, perfect! unfortunately the stain was very short lived and I did my best to help it stay on the there but I didn't get the results I was expecting.

Extra Color

This stuff is great! Looks and feels like natural color on your cheeks or lips, like you just worked out or something. I use it every single day and is one of my favorite items from BirchBox.

Natural

Smooth application and nice subtle color. I wish it lasted longer or was slightly more opaque. It also feels natural and not sticky.

Great!

I love this subtle color for a lip tint. It goes on very smooth and makes me look a little more awake in the morning!

Not For Me
Sampled

Don't care for this lip stain at all. It's too thick, doesn't feel smooth on my lips and didn't last long. I have other products from this brand and like them, but not this one!

Pretty
Sampled

I have wanted to try this product for a while now, so I was excited when this arrived in my box. It leaves a subtle hue on your cheeks that lasts all day.

The lips is a slightly different story, though. When first applied, and for a few hours after, it looks really great. However, it begins to fade on the edges of your lips, so that it's just the inner part of your lips that has the stain on it. You definitely are going to need to reapply after a few hours. On the plus side, the color is pretty, and it doesn't dry out your lips.

Just okay
Sampled

This lip\cheek stain is just okay. Neither love it or hate it. Not sure how often I will use. Will probably end up re-gifting this to someone!

Strange texture
Sampled

I know that it's for your lips and checks but I just wasn't a fan of the texture and it didn't last long.

Surprised
Sampled

I was pleasantly surprised with the color of this lip tint. The color looks very bold and bright, but once it is on, it is not as bold. It is just the right pinkness and it did not stand out in a bad way.
