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.

This would maybe be a good product but I thought the color was too bold for my liking. I will probably give it to a family member to try

Too dry
Sampled

I have used this on multiple occasions, and after about 30 minutes it dries out my lips so bad and then lip balm just wipes it off. the colour is great and not too over the top but I can't stand having dry, crusty lips.

I Liked It
Sampled

I loved the way if felt when I put it on, and the color.

Other reviews talked about the lack of pigment, but it does say "HINT of tint.
My only complaint would be that it is not super long lasting. I would still purchase this product.

Just a hint
Sampled

I have a very thin top lip and putting any color on them makes me like clownish instead sassy. I like this product because it is just a hint of color instead of a full on pigment which gives off a more natural look (which I dig). It's not gooey, thick, or smelly. I forgo I I would consider buying this again in the future.

Amazing

This product is amazing. It smells like roses and leaves your lips with a nice rosy red tint.

Long lasting and nice natural color!
Sampled

I find applying stains awkward and this one is a little better than others I have tried. The color enhances your natural shade and lasts for longer than I expected.

so pretty!

Very nice stain that lasts all day. Perfect color for spring, just not my go to color typically. I like the lighter colors so I would like to see their other colors

Not great

Was actually really excited to try I have just started dabbling in bright lip stain and lip sticks but this was a let down. It had to constantly reapplied and stayed in some spots but not others.

Lightweight and soft focus lip stain
Sampled

The lipstain only provides a soft focus and little to no color. Works for a natural look.
