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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

The perfect lip stain

I love this product! It's so hard to find a good lip stain that simply enhances your natural color and also isn't overly sticky or dry.

Not into the dark colors. Just not for me and it's a fall winter color not for spring and summer

Great Stain
Sampled

Great color, stays on for a long time but does start to break up after 3-4 hours and needs to be reapplied.

Amazing
Sampled

I didn't expect much, since a lot of "tints" just fall flat, but this was great! It provided the perfect amount of color, (which wasn't much, but subtle and lovely) and stayed on for hours

Subtle Tint
Sampled

This gave me a nice tint of color, but nothing more than a tinted chapstick would. I did not try this on my cheeks.

Nice stain
Sampled

Just looking at the bottle I thought this would be super gooey, but it's not. I have super dry lips so I'm a chap stick all the time girl, but with this I can stain my lips a nice pinky hue and then Chapstick over top. I haven't tried it on my cheeks yet, but I really like the product.
