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 use this on my bare lips, and cheeks. Does not last as long as I would like, but adds just the right amount of color.

Pretty color but no staying power
Sampled

I found this product pretty average; it goes on smoothly and has a nice tint but it comes off the moment I sip out of a water bottle or have a snack. There are a lot of other lip products that I would rather spend my money on.

Not usually a lip stain girl, but The colorstain was a great color and had good staying power for me.

The color is very pink and stays on pretty well. This sample size is great and overall nice for a casual day.

Light and Natural
Sampled

I liked this product more for a cheek stain than lip. I have fair/medium skin and the color just barely shows up on my lips. Perfect if you want a more natural look but the color was just too light.

Nice stain

This tinted gel is a very nice subtle way to add color to your cheeks or even lips. It blends well and you can build up the color.

washes out nicely

Of course, me being me, did not put up my box after receiving it. My two-year-old had to wear my lip stain and got it all over his hands. Surprisingly, it did not take much effort to clean him up.

Pretty good product

I love this lip-stain and the subtle color it gives. Its also very airy and light once it dries. It does, however, seem to fade pretty quickly.

All time favorite
Sampled

This is my favorite stain that I have tried so far. I am not a fan of lipstick marks left on glasses or boyfriends, so lipstains are usually my go to for lip color. However, until now, I had not found a very subtle stain. Stainiac has changed the whole experience for me, being a gel instead of a less viscous liquid that blends well and adds natural looking color.
