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.

Im not a fan of lip/cheek stains and this wasn't any exception. It did bring a nice natural tint to my foundation covered lips, but it seemed as thought it would be difficult to get any real, evenly spread pigment from it. Didn't even want to bother trying it on my cheeks, honestly

Love the color
Sampled

I haven't used this on my cheeks, and I don't plan to. I love the color it gives my lips and you can build it up pretty easily. It also wears off with a very natural look.

When I first saw that this could be used on your lips or as a tint for you cheeks, I thought: "cool!" As I actually went to use it, it was not so cool lol. The consistency was sticky and the color barely showed up on my lips or cheeks! I didn't care for the smell either.

This Red was not a great match for my skin tone. I prefer lighter colors. Long lasting color, hard to get off.

This was a great product but not my style. It is a lip stain. I don't wear red and usually go for a creamier lipstick.

It was ok..

It felt weird going on, and didn't really stay in too long in my lips.
