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.

Great!

I liked this product a lot. This is great to use if lipstick will be too much due to eye makeup. It has a light tint, and great moisture, you wont have to worry about dry lips at all.

I like that this adds a light tint to my lips. I can wear it during the day and not feel like it is to bold. I'll definitely get a lot of use out of this.

I liked the looks of this and was excited to try it out. However, I found it to have a bit of a sticky consistency and the taste was horrible.

Love this stain

I have a fairly simple makeup routine, and haven't used stains in the past for fear of them being too much. However I love this stain! You can apply lighter or darker and doesn't have a weird feeling on my lips. Also lasts a long time which is a plus!

Adds a bit of color with out looking to obvious. Not as pigmented as it may look, but still nice color and dries fast

I have been searching for a tint that I like, and this is it! It doesn't dry out my lips, has a great color and lasts. Also, using it on my cheeks gives them a nice color. It's great for everyday when I am rushing to get ready for work and need a simple application. Plus it's nice to reduce the number of items in my makeup bag since it has several uses. I have always wanted to try it and will be purchasing the full size.

Nice color

This stain definitely works! It's easy to apply and lasts. The sample should last a long time. I already have this in full size but it's always nice to have a gym bag backup.
