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.

Minimal color, easy application. After several layers, there was barely any color though. I wanted to like it, but I couldn't see myself purchasing this.

Not much of a stain more like a hint of color depending on how many layers you use to apply.

Nice
Sampled

Nice rosy color that you can put on your lips or cheeks. It was a little watery, but that made it easier to rub on the skin without smudging or being uneven. I think I prefer a powder more, but ended up using this quite a bit for a quick fresh look.

When this says minimal, it means it. It leave just a very light pink tint on the lips (I never tried it on my cheeks). It's kind of sticky and it doesn't last as long as I would like my stain to.

Easy to apply and super quick
Sampled

Very easy to apply, and dries fast. Does not make my skin oily and it is a good color if you do not like noticeable/sparkly blush

Surprised

Let me be the first to say that I am not a person who considers herself a "Stainiac" by any means... That being said, I think that this product could change that! I have an issue with most stains because they tend to oversaturate in some areas but this seems to be different. I have enjoyed wearing this on days that I just want a little extra color.

not for me

Had to layer it on to show up and then when it did finally show, it was uneven and kind of dried out my lips so you could see lines/creases. Not very flattering.

I love blush but I'm not much of a liquid blush person.

Ok Product

I was really excited about this product and although I like it, it is not a must have. I like that the product had a very sheer color, but it didn't seem to last as long as I had hoped.

This lip/cheek stain is the BOMB! I just throw it in my purse and save so much room and time! I have already recommended this to my sister and she loves it as well. Such a great product.
