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.

Used the product once and did not like the way it went on and looked when it was on. I ended up giving it away.

Taste is horrible
Sampled

I tried this both as a lip stain and as a blush. As a blush, most of the color ended up on my finger instead of my cheeks...silly me for trying to blend with my fingers. As a lip stain, the color was nice, but the taste was absolutely horrible!!!

No color

I'm pretty savvy when it comes to makeup and stains and know how this product should work. However, there is absolutely no color payoff at all when I use this. I just feel like I'm applying a gel to my lips. Not a fan. I'm not a fan of a lot of Balm lip products tbh.

wouldn't buy

I am very particular about lip stuff. This did not go on evenly. It did stain at first but did not last. The color was a bit unnatural for me and I wear almost all shades of red. Maybe because it was streaky? It was a no-go for this one.

LOVE IT!

Does not dry my lips out and stays on a long time. I was able to wear gloss on top of it without it coming off.

favorite lip product so far

I wasn't really excited about using this product when I got it in my subscription, but i was actually very happy with the results. The stain was easy to apply, worked quickly and lasted through eating. Will definitely purchase after i run out!

Works good

Lovely color. Highly pigminted. Works great for lips and cheeks. Stayed on me all day long and into the night. I would recommend this.

Could be better!

When I first got this product I was a little unsure how to use it. I finally figured I would rub it on my check and then see how it did. The first time it just kind of turned my cheek red. I don't think it reminded me of how a blush should look. I guess that's why its called a cheek stain. Overall the product wasn't terrible but I am not sure I would recommend it to others.
