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.

New to lip stain - will purchase!
Sampled

I tried a lip stain many years ago and didn't like the matte appearance at that time. I got the opportunity to try it again and I am hooked. I wish it was more long-wearing.

This is an awesome cheek stain but hard to apply because if you make a mistake, it stains your skin and you cant get it off. Also, if you directly apply it to your lips it is sticky

Good for fair complexions

Loved the texture of this stain. It felt like water on my lips and dried quickly! I have olive skin so the stain did absolutely nothing on me. If you have a fair complexion this would be a good product !

Nice lip stain
Sampled

I enjoyed this stain. It has a nice consistency and is not sticky. The color was nice, but not as pigmented as I expected it to be.

Great color and feel!

The color is very vibrant but not too out there for a fair skinned person like myself. Goes on easy and lasts for hours! I was very happy with this product.

Stained with love
Sampled

I love how I can stain my lips or even my cheeks with this. You can put this under plain lip balm if your lips dry out. It's akin to the old cheek stain from way way back. But this is even better because of the brush applicator. Perfect ;D

Not for me.

With my coloring, the bright red tint did nothing more than make me look like I'd eaten a popsicle.
