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.

Great stain
Sampled

This product worked very well to stain my lips. I used it as a base for a darker shade of red lipstick. I felt the lipstick lasted longer wearing this stain underneath. Highly recommend this product.

Nice rosy cheeks

I really like the texture and the color is great for my pale skin. Dont forget to smudge it quickly, otherwise the red stain will be too prominent. Use your daily moisturizer before the application for an easier smudge

Good lip stain
Sampled

I enjoyed this. I usually dont use lip stains, but this one seemed fine. I will say the color was slightly too intense for me personally, but I usually use bright pinks against my porcelain skin, and this was more of a darker rosy pink

Need more color!

I love all things lipstick and wanted to live this too. The color was much too light for me. I may need to see if it comes in something darker or brighter. Overall a great product just would like more color pop.

Just ok!

Light and easy to apply on lips. Nothing great. Did not like it on cheeks as it left a sticky feeling

Disappointing
Sampled

I really wanted to like this stain, but it just didn't work for me. I tried it on my lips and wasn't a fan is the sticky consistency. After several reapplications, it added zero color. I then tried it on my cheeks and and had to use a lot before I saw any difference and the color didn't last evenly. It actually did a better job at staining my finger I used for blending than my cheeks.

Nice color
Sampled

I actually really liked this color, but didn't feel it stained my lips consistently. I felt some spots were lighter then others. Didn't feel the color lasted too long. But it was pretty for a short while.

Lightly pretty

The color wasn't overwhelming. Smells and tastes a little weird if it enters your mouth. I like how it stains the lips but doesn't alter the texture of the lips.
