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.

The color didn't come out the way it looked in the tube. The smell and taste were gross. Needed to keep layering to see color. It distributes unevenly and was watery.

Pretty Nice
Sampled

I'm not one to wear stuff on my lips besides chap stick, but this lip stain left a nice subtle color on my lips. If I start increasing my makeup routine, I might buy a full size of it.

I was nervous to try this based on other reviews, but I ended up actually enjoying it! It isn't sticky like some say it is and it did leave a nice stain to my lips.

This was watery and did not hold the color as much as a stain lip product that I currently use. I liked the small compact size

this is a pretty subtle stain. I had to apply a couple of coats to get it above my natural lip color. It truly stains your lips. Expect to not lose your color for awhile with this on. The texture is odd, but it glides on easily and is easy to apply and does not give your lips the matte feel. I just like the chapstick texture so I did put chapstick over my color. overall, good product.

nice product

This is a subtle hint of color and I like it. If you use it on your cheeks, I find that I need to blend it in quickly or else it leaves spots.

Bad color for olive skin
Sampled

This shade didn't work at all for my coloring. The consistency wasn't bad and kept my lips soft without drying out, but did clump up a bit on any dry areas on my lips.

Not my favorite

I don't find this product very effective. It's super inconsistent and doesn't suit my lips well. It also highlights are cracks in lips as well.

Terrible

Maybe I received a dud, but this stuff was terrible. There was absolutely zero color payoff.
