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.

Didn't Expect to Like, but Loved

I have generally shied away from using liquid or cream blushers, but when I ran out of my powdered blush, I tried this out from my Birchbox and ended up really loving it. This is very lightweight, blends very easily, and lasts all day long. I also liked it on the lips, but found it really earned its keep as a blush.

I really liked this lip stain! The color is a great standard color & it is enough of a sample to see how it really wears. Stays on as promised.

exactly as described

This product is perfect for days when I don't want to look as if I am wearing makeup but could potentially meet a colleague, for the mornings when I forget to put on lipstick and have to apply color without looking during my commute and for a pick me up after lunch. The sample lasts forever and it works well under or over a simple chapstick.

Not a fan

This was an awful lip stain. I have slightly fuller lips and it was blotchy on my lips. This was a better cheek stain but still not a product I would recommend.

Great lip stain
Sampled

I love this lip stain - as someone who doesn't like to wear lipstick out too often for fear of smudging, this was perfect. I also like that the color blends with your natural lip tone making it more versatile for those of different skin colors.

Love this!
Sampled

This was SUCH a great product, I loved it from the moment I put it on my lips! It gives the perfect "your lips but better" look and looks so natural and pretty! I've been searching for a product to give me subtle color that would last, and this was it! It stains your lips and lasts so long! It gives your lips the perfect, natural hint of color that would be flattering for any skin color! I can use it on days where I'm not wearing any makeup to add a natural flush of color to my lips AND CHEEKS or on days where I wear a full face of makeup to spice up the look! As a cheek stain, and it gives a beautiful light flush to the cheeks that looks super natural!

Great color on my cheeks. Leaves a nice flush look. Didn't last on my lips but I would continue to use it as a blush

Drying

Was really excited to try this lip stain. Very disappointed in how drying it was to my lips. Really wanted to like this and was disappointed in it.
