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.

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

Does nothing
Sampled

It barely left a stain on my lips and I didn't like the texture. I didn't even want to try it on my cheeks because the consistency wasn't good for the cheeks. If you want to see any sort of color, you need to put multiple coats on.

Great in a pinch!

I love this option for the times you need to freshen up, but don't have all your makeup with you. When it's on your lips, they brighten up your whole face; and on your cheeks, there's a nice rosy finish.

Word to the wise - it appears brighter/more saturated after a couple minutes, so do it in layers in order to not have baby doll cheeks.

No shine

Used it multiple times and had no shine. When I added a gloss over it, the stain would come off.

loved this more than expected

It's simple, easy to layer, and adds a subtle pop of color I really loved. I liked this a lot more than I anticipated I would!

Just okay

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.

Awesome

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
Sampled

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.
