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.

Nice surprise!

Love the color. Smooth application on the lips. Not too sticky either like some other brands

Perfect spring flush of color!
Sampled

The texture and saturation of this product was terrific. I appreciated that it wasn't overly fragrancefor. Could work really nicely under a gloss and nice to use on checks too so you're not toting multiple touch ups for a night out. Definitely going to purchase.

Great on lips, not on cheeks.
Sampled

Very impressed with lip color, not so much with cheeks. First use I didn't like it, but second time I layered it on a little to deepen the color. Got many compliments!

Nice stain
Sampled

This stain has a beautiful color that looks very natural. It didn't last very long for a stain and I had to reapply several times throughout the day.

Great STAINiac
Sampled

I'm at the gym a lot and some days I have to be in class afterwards. This stain has been fabulous to have on hand for when I freshen up and need a little color in my lips without having to put on a full face of makeup. Love it!

Stainiac gives you just the right amount of color - not too dark and not too light AND lasted through my day!

I didn't wear it much but it seemed like it would be an okay color.. The color just wasn't for me. ????

Gross texture and it doesn't work
Sampled

The wet consistency felt gross on my lips. I tried applying over and over and found no difference in my lip color. I tried using it on my cheeks as suggested on the packaging and it also did absolutely nothing. Totally useless product.
