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.

Love this lip stain

I'm one that needs a lip stain so that I can have that color that lasts all day.

This one does. I love it

Didn't love the feel of this
Sampled

I like the idea of a lip and cheek stain but this was too watery and dried too fast before I could blend it.

Lovely color!

I really liked this lip stain. It was a little sticky at first but just add a lip balm over it and it smooths out. The color lasted for several hours

Not for me
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of lip stains. They tend to wear off in certain places and then my lips just look blotchy.

Better When Tan

I am just returning from vacation and have nice skin color. This product actually works very well on my cheeks. It stays on my lips well too.

Blah

I did not like the color at all...also did not like the texture on my lips. I felt it dried them out.

Not effective for Me
Sampled

I was hopefully about this product, anything that could have multiple uses (lips/cheeks) would be welcome and free up space in my purse. But I tried it on both my lips and cheeks and I noticed such a small difference that I haven't used it again. The consistency while applying is thick and sticky, which does disappear after it dries. But on my cheeks it was unnoticeable and lips was minimal. I'm not sure if it's just my skin tone and/or the tint I received. This one didn't work for me.

Decent Product
Sampled

This lip product is a fun color, but I found that it didn't last for a super long time. Also, it was sometimes splotchy if I wasn't super careful while applying.

My favorite lip stain!
Sampled

I really love this product. It leaves more of a reddish hue behind, so it looks very natural and is something I can wear every day. Also, it doesn't dry my lips out, or leave behind yucky streaks!
