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 color, but...

I wear red on my lips almost everyday, so I was really excited to try a new product. This however takes a lot of coats to be noticeable and didn't last very long, maybe a few hours.

this stain tasted awful, and was a gel that dried chunky on my lips. it stained it unevenly and left weird color blotches.

I loved the way this product looked when I first put it on but for it to be a stain it didn't seem to last very long and it dried my lips out. But the color was great and I also used it on my cheeks. great for a natural look :)

It's alright.

I tried to put aside that I am not a big "stain" fan when trying this. However, I felt it was a bit runny and a bit too sheer to really give me good color. I will still to more opaque lip sticks.

adequate sized sample bottle, not too crazy about the stickiness this stain leaves behind. rather use a tinted lip balm.

Great color!

I enjoyed how vibrant the color of this was, as it made for a good red lip color. It does a great job in coverage and lasting for hours.

Love this!!!!!

I liked this product but there was a very small amount of stuff in there and it confused me when it said lip and cheek but over all it was a good product

I really hate the sticky feeling you get with lip stains. And it's such a pain if you mess up your line while applying, you can't just wipe it off. This is going in the box of blah samples I'll be giving to my daughter.

Love this stain but . . .
Sampled

Love the color and texture but wish the stain was longer lasting. The color is buildable depending on the number of layers you want to apply which is great. This stain is also non drying which is hard to find in a stain.

I love this lip stain, and I have purchased it before. It goes on really smooth and is never goopy. It dries quickly so you have to apply it and smooth it out fast.
