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.

I tried this product on my lips the first time. I thought the hint of color was good, but it felt sticky. I wasn't going to use it again, but I found myself in a situation where I was short on make-up and in a hurry so I tried it on my cheeks. It was fantastic!!! It blended in nicely and was the perfect rosy color. I preferred it over any other blush I'd used in the past.

Nice color very sheer red but you can always add on, when it dries it is a very nice stain

I have used other stains in past, this was great quality and very easy to apply and blend. Stayed for a long time while I was on a beach vacation!

Light Coverage

The color barely shows up which may be good in certain situations but I like a lot of color. It is also very sticky and doesn't stay on well.

Meh...

I don't normally like lip/cheek stains. Therefore, I might not give the best review of this product. I thought it smelled a little strange and didn't last as long as I thought.

This is the first time I have ever used this product and I love love love it! The more applications the darker and richer the color. No stickiness or bad flavor, just a smooth texture with long lasting color. I would definitely recommend this product and will definitely purchase it!

this was a good product, i dont usually go for the stained look on my cheeks or lips. I still prefer my powders and creams.
