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.

Cute!
Sampled

This is a cute lip stain to keep in your purse. The size is perfect, not too big not too small. I was worried that it was going to be super dark because of how red the packaging is. But it's actually a "your lips but better" shade. It doesn't last more than 2-3 hours on me, but I love applying it because of the way it feels. It kinda tingles on my lips too which I don't hate. Overall, I think it's cute!

alright
Sampled

this is a nice, true stain. it is probably better for people with medium to darker complexions because it's easy to over do it and look clownish on my very pale complexion. I like the new formula though. it used to be liquid but now it's more jelly. that makes it easier to control.

Okay product but feels a little sticky. Not a fan of the color.

Wasn't impressed
Sampled

I wasn't impressed. I wanted to like it as I love a good stain. But I didn't feel like it has much "staining" power.

Too sticky
Sampled

I liked the packaging of this product and that's about the only thing. It's way too sticky to put onto my lips let alone my cheeks!

Not worth it
Sampled

So i guess it tints your lips a little but not much and it doesn't last very long. I wouldn't spend money on this.
