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.

Perfect for that barely-there, subtle color on lips.

not impressed
Sampled

I see this product has good overall reviews but it simply did not work for me. I was excited to try it because I don't wear a lot of makeup and was looking for something with just a hint of color. This added no color at all and I did not like the texture. Will not buy the product.

Um...

It's smells good and it worked okay on my lips but the consistency is very sticky and not very pleasant and it didn't stain my cheeks when used as blush at all.

just the tint
Sampled

I personally don't use make up often, let alone a lip stick. This lip tint was nice, lite and natural looking. Also, it made my lips look fuller and luscious. I use it often and asked for it for Mothers day!

This product was a little strange for me but, my 14 year old truly liked it and said she will definitely be using it for her dance recital coming up!

Super cute

I love this lip stain. It's super lightweight and looks natural. The color is super cute and great for spring. I've been able to use my sample enough times to decide I really like this product.

Great lip stain
Sampled

At first I wasn't excited to receive a lip stain because I haven't been a fan of them but after sampling it I'm so glad that I did receive it. The color is a little more bright that I would normally like but I still like it and can wear it. It is a bit sheer but buildable and it really lasts all day long. Some say it is sticky and it is at first but it goes away so it doesn't me. Great to wear alone or under a gloss. I defiantly will be purchasing this.

The product seemed to be long lasting, but a bit drying to my lips.
