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.

Nice surprise!
Sampled

This stain is surprisingly the perfect complement for a "no makeup" makeup look. The color is not nearly as dramatic as it seems it would be. The texture is nice and light, goes on very well, and stays put without feeling like you're wearing any lip color at all.

Great consistency
Sampled

I really like the consistency of the lip gloss, not too sticky, but rather gently moistened my lips and gave them a healthy shine.

Just okay
Sampled

Color didn't really show up on my
Lips. Not necessarily a bad lip stain, but didn't work well for me. I haven't tried it as cheek stain yet, but I don't think I'll be into the stickiness.

Not Effective
Sampled

I have caramel tone skin and this product didn't show up well or do much. I also wasn't fond of the texture, a bit too oily. Tried it on my lips. Not very effective.

Interesting lip stain
Sampled

I haven't tried this as a blush yet, but it is a pretty lip stain. However, it doesn't stay on very long.

Color doesn't show
Sampled

I thought this would be a great alternative to gloss or lipstick however, the color didn't really show. Not sure If it had to do with my natural lip color or the product itself.

It's a pretty color but it goes on way too sheer and doesn't stain your lips. The color was gone right after I applied it.
