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.

Amazing stain
Sampled

I love a good lip stain. This color is exactly what I wanted, not too bright or pink. Buildable color. Could have better staying power.

Forget my apple-dapple cheeks thus business belongs on my lips! I love the tint, it's subtle. Probability of me buying this product? Pretty good!

Loved everything but the color
Sampled

Received a good size sample in my March box. Nice thin easy to apply gloss. Liked everything but the color. Red isn't my thing. Would love this in another shade.

Light in color
Sampled

This was surprisingly light in color, though build able, which I liked. Color lasts several hours, but ,as is typical of a stain, lasts longer in certain areas of the lip making it appear uneven.

Almost a yes.

I really like the look/name, as well as the texture (I like the gel as opposed to liquid stain). unfortunately, the color was too subtle and didn't last long.

Jelly????????
Sampled

The texture is like jelly!! ???????? it was strange at first but it is like that so that not too much gets picked up on the applicator. It's good for what it is, a slight wash of build able color. Have not tried on cheeks but would he good with a stipple brish
