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.

Nice stain
Sampled

This tinted gel is a very nice subtle way to add color to your cheeks or even lips. It blends well and you can build up the color.

washes out nicely
Sampled

Of course, me being me, did not put up my box after receiving it. My two-year-old had to wear my lip stain and got it all over his hands. Surprisingly, it did not take much effort to clean him up.

Pretty good product
Sampled

I love this lip-stain and the subtle color it gives. Its also very airy and light once it dries. It does, however, seem to fade pretty quickly.

All time favorite
Sampled

This is my favorite stain that I have tried so far. I am not a fan of lipstick marks left on glasses or boyfriends, so lipstains are usually my go to for lip color. However, until now, I had not found a very subtle stain. Stainiac has changed the whole experience for me, being a gel instead of a less viscous liquid that blends well and adds natural looking color.

Best. Tint. Ever.

I am absolutely in love with this product. It goes ok great and for a lip and cheek tint it is surprisingly blendable it looks natural and can be used under foundation for blush or over or even on its on to add color I also use it on my lips too!

Requires too many layers
Sampled

This product looks so gorgeous and feminine, after about 5 or 6 layers. After that, though, it doesn't last very long, and it smells very odd.

Too bright of a color
Sampled

I really wanted to like this product but just couldn't! Not only do I not care for sticky facial products but when I tried to use this on my lips the color was extremely bright pink making my lips look like a painted clown or at least bad make up from the 80's. :/

This was very nice and I really liked it. I think maybe it was a bit too sticky for me thought.
