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.

Good product

I don't really like lip and cheek stains, but I received this in my Birchbox so I tried it out. The color is lovely and it has good staying power, but I found it to be a little sticky. Maybe that's how liquid stains are? I wouldn't know because, like I said, I normally don't use them. However, for what this product offered, it did a good job. It's a very flattering shade of hot pink that I feel would compliment many skin tones. Well done!

Great stain
Sampled

I've never tried a lip stain before this one, but I really like it! The staining makes it look a little more natural than traditional lipstick and the not rubbing off part is the best, of course.

Lip Stain!
SampledPurchased

This is an addicting new way to add the perfect amount of color to your lips! Add a little to give a more natural look or layer it on for a deeper red look. Not sticky or creamy. Absolutely love!

Beautiful color!

I have a very fair complexion, so I'm always a bit nervous using cheek stains. This product goes on well and has an excellent color, will be buying again!

Nice Lip Stain
Sampled

I like this lip stain. It's not too red, it's more of a subtle red that just tints your lips which is nice. Overall I like this product, not sure if I will end up buying it though.

Not great ...
Sampled

Was excited to find this in my box, but it is way to sticky and not much of a color. Okay but not great.

Natural look

This lip tint glides effortlessly and gives a natural look that I could wear every day with just a top and jeans.

Weird
Sampled

This was a really weird product... It didn't quite work for either application for me. The taste was weird, the stain on the lips wasn't enough and the blush factor was just odd. Wouldn't at all purchase this!
