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.

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
Sampled

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.

Long lasting

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

Love this!
Sampled

At first I didn't think I'd like this stain. I've looked everywhere for a stain I liked, but I kept using it and the more you later it on the darker it gets! It lasts all day and doesn't dry out or chap my lips. When my sample is gone I will be ours chasing this stain for sure!

I did not like the smell or taste of this product, i would be more apt to use it on my lips and it was ineffective to me

I really was excited to try this and was disappointed. It was invisible on both my cheeks and lips.

Not the best
Sampled

I love The Balm usually, however the Staniac was a bit of a letdown. The reviews were mixed when I looked it up so I gave it my best shot. But it really dried out my lips and took several coats just to see any color. I think I'll stick to their liquid lipsticks from now on
