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.

Nice tint

I really like this product. It doesn't have the longest lasting color but it is pretty. It feels cold and almost jelly like when applying. Such a pretty color and the right amount of tint.

Not a tint gal

It's a cool idea. Tint for lips and cheeks in one but it came out too dark on my cheeks and didn't even work on my lips. Meh.

i used theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac several times. color is very sheer and the texture is odd, didn't really spread over my lips easily. Not for me

This is a really great lip stain. It really stays on your lips a long time and it's a beautiful shade.

Perfect for just a hint of color. I was reluctant to try it on my cheeks but works well on lips.

Subtle color
Sampled

This stain gives my lips a nice, light pink color. It is very subtle, so you may need to apply multiple layers to get the intensity of the color you want.

Great long lasting color

I love stains for pre-exercise, the beach or pool when I want to look like I'm not wearing makeup, but I'm also not a zombie. This is a great, long lasting, natural looking stain.

Pretty shade
Sampled

I do not usually wear lip stick or stain so this isn't something I will use often. It is a pretty shade of red though, if only I had the lips tht could wear it

It does its job.

I received this as a sample in my box. It's ok. I didn't think there was anything special about it. If you're into stains, you'll like this. I just thought it was kinda meh. I do love products from theBalm. If you're into this kind of thing, check it out.
