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.

This is a wonderful lip stain! It lasts all day from school to work! Plus the red shade doesn't feel like a marker or crayon red on my lips it feels natural for everyday use!

This is a great product, just not for me. I was not thrilled about the color or the consistency.

Wasn't impressed
Sampled

The stain was relatively pigmented but didn't last. I'll try it out a few more times but I probably won't use it or buy it

Did not care for the shade, and I am not particularly fond of lip stains.

LOVED!

I loved this product. I have used the benetint before and liked the texture of this tint better. I use it on my cheeks every day as a replacement to a blush/bronzer. Gives me great color and stays all day.

I like this lipgloss because it goes on smoothly and does not have and thick, glossy layer. I like that it suddely tints my lips to a natural red.
