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.

Loved the color and staying power. A little goes a long way!

I loved the size of the sample and the color. I applied it in the morning and I still had good color by the end of the day. I give this stain an A+

Perfect product for me
Sampled

Most days, I keep my makeup subtle. This lip/cheek stain is the perfect product to give a tint of color without being overwhelming. It's the kind of product I'll use daily.

Lip cheek stain

Not really my thing, I am more of a brush blush kind of person and I find it hard to blend.

Cheeks not lips
Sampled

This might be a good product to keep in your purse to re-apply lips and cheeks after work but I found that it wasn't dark enough on my lips even after a few layers. It worked pretty well on the cheeks though. I don't like this product enough to buy it. I think a separate lip stain and cheek product would be much better.

Not bad.

It's an okay product. The color doesn't seem to last very long but it looks nice when you first put it on.

Ok product

This lip stain was average at best. Didn't feel like it made much of an impact on my overall look. Have definitely tried other lip stains I would recommend before this one.

Slightly obsessed
Sampled

I have to admit that I was initially bummed to see this product in my box. I'm really just not a fan of lip stains. Thankfully, I tried it anyway because I instantly fell in love. It is a very natural looking stain. It gives a little color boost, but doesn't necessarily look like you're wearing a lip color. It feels wonderful, not drying or cakey. Very lightweight. Will probably buy in the future.
