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.

Lip stain is scary!
Sampled

Lip stain just terrifies me. I'm not an advanced makeup artist, so I really wasn't please because I don't have the skill set. I'm sure it's super if you can do it accurately. It was fun to try. Gonna try my cheeks next :)

Nice Color
Sampled

It seems like a good color and product. It wasn't as dark as I'd hoped though from the bottle. Also faded pretty quickly.

Good product
Sampled

I'm not much of a lipstick person so that is the only reason for the three stars. I did try it just to try it and it was a little too bright for me but it did stay on for quite a while .

Wished is lasted longer
Sampled

With the word "stain" in the title, I had high hopes that this would be a long lasting color. Applied around 9am and was, for the most part, gone by noon. Also, this is the 2nd time I have received this sample in my Birchbox!! I hate getting duplicates

It's not like lip stain, and it doesn't smear like regular lipstick

Too dry for lips
Sampled

I can use this for my cheeks as a blush, but it is way too drying on my lips. It looks like a beautiful natural flush on the cheeks, but doesn't last as long as I like. Maybe for someone with drier skin. My oily skin causes is to be short lived.
