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.

Odd Taste
Sampled

I usually love stains however this product just didn't work for me. The scent of the lipstain was very longlasting and didn't taste so great! Consistency was thick and sticky and hard to blend evenly.

Pretty stain
Sampled

This stain last pretty long, and was easy to apply. It creates a soft red look, and it has a nice smell to it too!

Just enough!
Sampled

Love this stain. I didn't use it as a cheek stain but did use it on my lips. It's just enough color and lasts a long time.

Amazing Product.

I always struggle with carrying too much makeup to work and overloading my purse. This little tube saves me so much room toting blush and lipstick and even eyeshadow on some days. Love it!

Great lip stain!
Sampled

I was a little disappointed when I got this in my Birchbox because thought the color would be too dark, but when I applied it, it looked very natural. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the texture was a little weird, it was a bit too "watery" for me. However, if you're a lip stain person, this is a great natural-looking stain.

I loved this as a lip stain. I would apply lip gloss on top for a pretty color. I will definitely purchase this product.

It is Okay

To be honest I was not a huge fan but for those who enjoy lip stains, the color is very bold and bright. I did love the color, but I found it did not last that long and it smudged super easily. I wish it stayed on longer and did not irritate my lips as much. If you love lip stains, try it out!

Meh...

I was disappointed in this lip stain. I really wanted to like it because I've been looking for a nice stain, however the color really did not show up as much as I'd hoped.

Not a fan. I guess if you're into this type of product it's great, but I'm not much for it. I feel like it's too easy to make yourself look like a clown if you wear it on your cheeks and too light for lips.
