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.

was hoping for a different effect
Sampled

I understand that this is simply a stain, but it really didn't work well st all for me. I much prefer a balm. This product just seems watery and ineffective.

Goes on wet but dries to a perfect texture not too matte!
Sampled

This is a great texture! Goes on wet and glossy then dries to a stain without drying lips. Love it! Color great on any and all skin tones

Pretty color
Sampled

The color is pretty. I liked it better on my cheeks than lips. It didn't last very long on my lips.

Perfect for Day and Night!

I wore this to work for a meeting and then put more on later for a date! Flirty and professional with the right complementary makeup. A+

Great lip stain!
Sampled

I absolutely adore this lip stain! it is subtle enough to use everyday but noticeable enough to add some color and life to your lips. not drying and does not get on teeth! definitely see myself buying in the future.

Didn't Expect to Like, but Loved
Sampled

I have generally shied away from using liquid or cream blushers, but when I ran out of my powdered blush, I tried this out from my Birchbox and ended up really loving it. This is very lightweight, blends very easily, and lasts all day long. I also liked it on the lips, but found it really earned its keep as a blush.

I really liked this lip stain! The color is a great standard color & it is enough of a sample to see how it really wears. Stays on as promised.

exactly as described
Sampled

This product is perfect for days when I don't want to look as if I am wearing makeup but could potentially meet a colleague, for the mornings when I forget to put on lipstick and have to apply color without looking during my commute and for a pick me up after lunch. The sample lasts forever and it works well under or over a simple chapstick.

Not a fan
Sampled

This was an awful lip stain. I have slightly fuller lips and it was blotchy on my lips. This was a better cheek stain but still not a product I would recommend.
