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 for cheeks
Sampled

I preferred this on my cheeks because the texture on the lips wasn't great. But very pretty on the cheeks and lasted all day. Teeny sample but I like the product.

Natural lips at their best ????????????
Sampled

Luvvit. It helps if your lips are not dry or cracked before application. Works wonders if your lips are already supple.

Just enough tint, doesn't look too crazy. Lasts for a while too

Didn't care for this....
Sampled

Well, regardless of the rave reviews -- this product was not for me. I'm a big time lipstick/lip stain/lip balm/lip anything user. I don't care to leave the house without some color on em, but this product was a real dud for me. It was sticky and the color was not ideal. I hated the way that it left my lips feeling. Will not be purchasing or recommending this product.

Not a lip stain

I do not like the color and it didn't stay on very long after I put it on. I love the balm though. This product just isn't the right one for me.

I wanted to love this but it's horrible
Sampled

First, I have no desire to use this on my cheeks. I was hoping this would be a nice long lasting stain versus the liquid lipsticks that I use. Stains tend not to dry my lips out as much. This after not even a real hint of color to my lips. I was so utterly disappointed.

nice stain
Sampled

This is a great little stain. Adds a nice flush of color, lasts pretty long. The only downside is like, with all stains, it can be quite drying so you need to make sure to moisturize. Also, the color, a deep fuchsia, was pretty but not amazing to me. I would be willing to test out some different colors though.

Not for me

This stain did not last as long as others I have tried. It dried my lips out and stuck around the inner part of my mouth. I don't like that "vampire just had lunch" look.

convenient version of benetint

more convenient than benetint...gel rather than liquid and doe foot applicator rather than brush
