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.

This product looks so gorgeous and feminine, after about 5 or 6 layers. After that, though, it doesn't last very long, and it smells very odd.

Too bright of a color
Sampled

I really wanted to like this product but just couldn't! Not only do I not care for sticky facial products but when I tried to use this on my lips the color was extremely bright pink making my lips look like a painted clown or at least bad make up from the 80's. :/

This was very nice and I really liked it. I think maybe it was a bit too sticky for me thought.

Love love love!

Have been wearing this on my cheeks and actually had some compliments and questions of what product it is. My boyfriend even made a comment on how he'd made me blush, which- he really hadn't but it was cute he thought he had at that time. Lol. Haven't tried it on my lips yet, as I almost never put color on my lips but will try this week. Again, love it as a cheek stain though!

Nice hint of color
Sampled

Now I'm not really a fan of stains, but this product wasn't too obvious and bright. I liked being able to build up my color slowly. I was able to place a very light layer on under Chapstick to give me a little bit of color for work. Very light feeling, doesn't dry out your lips!

Pretty, subtle tint

i love the natural look this product offers. It can feel a bit dry once it sets, so I top it with lip balm. Nice staying power.

It's alright

It's not a bad product but I for sure have tried better lip stains. It doesn't stay on as long as I would hope and I wish it had more color/tint to in. Overall I would say it is just OK.

I really love this product! It's a beautiful shade of reddish pink. It lasts all morning even after sipping on my coffee. Looks pretty on my cheeks too
