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.

I really wanted to like this because my go-to lip gloss is from the same brand. But, this stain wouldn't stay on, even after several applications. But, I like that it's not gooey.

Love color payoff

This is the perfect stain. Subtle and easy to use. Gives your lips just a little something.

Stain not blendable
Sampled

After cleansing and moisturizing, I put on BB cream and attempted to use this stain on my cheeks. It did NOT blend and I couldn't get it off so I ended up going to a meeting with a client with a giant red patch on my cheek.

I really wanted to like this. I tried it five times which speaks to how amazing the amount of uses it has is. But I can't. Stains just aren't for me.

Lip stains not for me
Sampled

This is the 2nd lip stain sample I've had, different brands, and neither suited me. I like moisture in my lipstick and to me this lip stain is drying. For people that don't mind dryness or don't want to "feel" like they have lipstick, this is probably great. But for me, just not a product I would every buy.

A Tint of Spring
Sampled

I Love this! Its the right amount of tint without looking unnatural. It lightly brightens and stays on for a good while. I do have to reapply after eating, but that doesn't bother me because I kind of like seeing the little perk it gives to my lips. Its a great stain!

Long lasting color for your lips
Sampled

I like the fact that this lip stain really holds for several hours on my lips. Not a fan of the color that was provided in my box, but in another color this would be a great product. Just add a little clear gloss on top and you are good to go!

Subtle gloss
Sampled

This product is very subtle, but adds a touch of color. I like it! You need to put on a few coats, but it gets the job done.

Not too dark. Goes on smoothly and stays on for hours because it kind of stains the lips. I put on a light color first then this after.

Cute!

I love this as a lip stain. Makes my lips look nice and pink! Haven't really tried it on my cheeks but as a lip stain, it works!
