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.

Pretty, subtle tint

i love the natural look this product offers. It can feel a bit dry once it sets, so I top it with lip balm. Nice staying power.

I love this as a lip stain. It goes on smooth and the color lasts for hours.

It's alright

It's not a bad product but I for sure have tried better lip stains. It doesn't stay on as long as I would hope and I wish it had more color/tint to in. Overall I would say it is just OK.

I really love this product! It's a beautiful shade of reddish pink. It lasts all morning even after sipping on my coffee. Looks pretty on my cheeks too

Love!

I love everything about this. It looked extremely dark in the tube, but it was very subtle when I actually put it on my lips. I'm not usually big on lip stains or anything on my lips really besides chap-stick, but I really like the little added pop of color this gives me. :)

Just a little tint
Sampled

Although the consistency and coverage of this product is good,I was hoping for a little bit more of a color/tint. It may be that this color did not show up well against my natural lip tone, but it essentially just looked like I put on clear gloss. I haven't used it on my cheeks yet, but I'm hoping that it the color will be a bit more vibrant on my flesh than on my lips.

Not so great
Sampled

It have water consistency, doesn't taste good, and not long lasting. The color is okay but even on cheeks it doesn't stay that long. I like the brand but really dissapointed on this one.
