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.

theBalm is a great product if you want a subtle lip during the day. It is easy to apply and moisturizes your lips.

Great to Give Your Lips a Hint of Color
Sampled

When I first saw this in my Birchbox I was worried that this color would be far too dark for me, but once applied it was a lovely shade that enhanced my lips in a subtle way and lasted throughout the day.

This is my favorite Birchbox product so far. Most lip stains I've tried have dried my lips out but this product gives me a light but lasting color without the resulting chapped lips. Just the right amount of color and shine. I will likely purchase this through Birchbox soon!

Not Great

I hated the way this felt on my lips. Several coats needed to be applied before it showed.

I was excited to try this stain but was immediately disappointed. There was zero color. It goes on clear. Bummer.

Need a lot of layers for this to show up but it's a cute shade.
