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.

Love it!

Went on sheer so thankfully it wasn't as dark as I thought. Didn't dry my lips out either. Perfect with a lip all over it, it lasted all day.

Stains lips , slightly drying
Sampled

Does a good job staining the lips. It is a bit drying and comes off after a while. I have used stronger stains in the past from other companies.

Love this product!!!

I use this product as a base to whatever lipstick I'm using that day. It doesn't last all day but it's a great product!!

IN LOVE!

I'm not big on lipsticks or stains, but this was amazing! It gave just enough color to my lips for a natural look!

Interesting product
Sampled

Its very interesting product. Gel consistancy and color payoff isn't that good. I personally didn't think it would work on the cheek and lips, maybe. Color is barely there and i dont think i like how it feels on the lips.

Okay but too dark for me!
Sampled

I liked the texture and consistency, but not how it looked with my skin-tone. I have fair/light skin, so it really popped!

perfect hint of color
Sampled

This gloss gave my lips the perfect hint of color that I like, for days that I do not want to wear lipstick. I used a clear or nude lip gloss over this stain and it looked really nice.

Lipcolor that you can't feel!
Sampled

This lip stain is amazing! The color is very light yet buildable. You don't even know you have lipcolor on . . . it isn't sticky, wet, slick, etc. I plan to order this product in a couple of other shades.

It's okay
Sampled

It is okay but does not show well with my skin complexion. Maybe would work for someone with a lighter complexion.

Simple
Sampled

I like the product because it's an easy solution to a minimalist makeup day. I love to try new products, but my day to day makeup routine usually consists of a bb cream, some brightener under my eyes, a little bronzer/blush, and mascara. Its difficult to find time during the day to pick a lipstick and keep applying. This stain is simple, subtle, or you can layer it on to make a more dramatic look. All without worrying about it wiping off. Its a bright pink, and looks great with my current makeup!
