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.

I hate lipstick but love this staining gloss that gives me the same color lipstick would without the hassel!! Absolutely wonderful product I can't wait to buy more of it.

Long masting but a little too dark
Sampled

I thought this color was a bit too dark but I'm a pretty fair skin tone. I feel like if you're someone with a darker skin tone this would look awesome though, it was super long lasting, as a color stain should be.

Not an effective stain..
Sampled

I am not sure if it's due to the fact that this stain is water based, but every time I used it, it never stayed on my lips for more than an hour or so. I was very disappointed that I kept having to reapply! Not what you want from a stain...

Bad color
Sampled

I did not like the red color. I did like when you first applied it wasn't to dark.

Lip stain

I love the color. It gives a great pop without being over the top. I did feel like I had to put on several layers to get an even look.

Great lip color that is Easy to apply!
Sampled

Great color that is easy to apply. Doesn't smear or leave marks. Not sticky which is why I hate gloss most the time. Color is little darker than I normally wear, but can apply less and is lighter. Like how it is versitile.

Lots of layering necessary!
Sampled

I found that this product required far too much layering to be effective. I like the idea of a light rosy stain, but the gel didn't ever really set into the lip like other stays it rubbed off while drinking and eating too quickly. I did love using it for my cheeks and eyes though!

This was so small I could barely get any product out. Stains don't look good on me and this was no exception

Wanted to like this
Sampled

I really wanted to like this because I prefer stains to lip sticks or gloss, but this didn't really do much. Not even when I tried layering it. Smell is fine and it wasn't too sticky but doesn't do anything for me
