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.

love it
Sampled

I already own this product and I've been using it for a while. It's always good to have a backup. I prefer to use it on my lips rather than use it on my cheeks.

great color and long lasting
Sampled

theBalm cosmetics Stainiac was long lasting and the color was just enough to add life to my lips without over doing it. Great for everyday wear!

Just a tint!
Sampled

Perfect for just a tint of color. I have only used it in my lips but you can also use on your lips.

Great Lip Stain
Sampled

Out of all the samples I received in my Birchbox in March, this had to be my favorite. I absolutely love this lip stain. It goes on smoothly, although sometimes there are some clumps but they are easy to spread. The color looks great on my lips. Love it!

Pretty good
Sampled

It was a very good product, the color was a little bright and hard to get off, but if you like it that way it's great. I thought it was pretty good overall.

Perfect hint of color!
Sampled

When I'm doing a "natural" look I put this on my lips & its perfect! A little drying but nothing you can't put some clear Chapstick over for moisturizing.

Nice and Soft
Sampled

This product only gives you a soft tint, nothing bold. If that's what you're looking for, this is an excellent product. I wanted a bolder look so I kept layering, and it didn't work out so well. But again, if soft is what you want, you're in for a treat!

Eh

Not the greatest tint. Has an odd smell and doesn't work too well.

Great for a non-lipstick user
Sampled

The shade was great for me as I don't normally wear lipstick. It gave a great stained color that didn't make me feel like a clown in makeup.i haven't been able to tell how long the color lasts yet, though.
