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.

Too sticky
Sampled

It has a weird texture. I felt like it was almost sticky but watery at the same time. Constantly had to reapply and made little to no difference to my lip color. Not impressed with this product. This would be great for a 12 year old girl who's experimenting with make up.

Pretty buildable stain
Sampled

This is a nice light stain product. It gives your lips a nice pink stain, but can be built up for more color. The consistency is thin and it tingles a little. Once I put it on, I let it dry completely and then throw a gloss over it.

Okay stain

Love this brand and love lip stain. I was very excited when I saw this in my box. It was a bit drying though; just like any other lip stain product

will buy

I really like the color of this. it's just a little brighter than my natural lip color and it lasts longer than I thought it would. the kind I used before required chapstick to be put on first or at least that's what I was told. this doest work if you wear lip gloss under it but it's fine over. hope this helps :)

Not for me
Sampled

I liked the product and I liked the color but I'm more of a powder blush type of girl. Application was a bit tricky and color was too concentrated for my liking. Nothing against this product but this just wasn't for me. Only used this product once and not sure I will ever use it again. Too committed to my powder blush.

Just Not For Me
Sampled

I think this product could be good for others it's just not for me. I'm a lip gloss kind of gal and this didn't do it for me. The consistency was kind of weird, cold and jelly-like. The color didn't come through as much as I hoped it would either.

Lip Tint
Sampled

The only cheek/lip tint I've used consistently has been benefit, which I love. This gives it a run for its money. It's a thicker texture and makes my lips feel smooth after applying. It gives enough tint but not too much. Really enjoyed this product.
