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.

Good but not great
Sampled

Great texture and shade but wears away quickly (maybe a the shade is too similar to my lips?) and using it as a blush worked fine but the shade made me look flushed in a I-just-worked-out way. So maybe I liked this but just not the shade

Lip stain

This sample is a really cute little package. Using a lil and cheeks stain is something new to me. When I did use it I got a lot compliment. People thought that I was blushing all day. That was cool because looking in the mirror I couldn't see any difference. It obviously did work because every other person I saw that day said something about it.

I've had this before. And it just doesn't do anything for me. I've tried it multiple times but still it doesn't show a difference in color.

I love the balm products! I live how even though this is a stain it leaves just a sheer was of color. Great for fresh spring looks.

Great color, it's a little sticky but overall happy with its versatility as a lip stain / cheek stain.

Little too Sheer
Sampled

Too Sheer, did not hold up for very long. Maybe with a Lipstick under and use this as a Gloss may work best for us girls that want more color & lasting color.

Almost there, but not quite

I wanted to really like this after receiving the sample, but it just didn't work for me. The product felt sticky on my cheeks and didn't leave much color to my lips. I need something that will last throughout the day.

good color, neutral taste, looks natural . both my daughter and i like the effect. much better than expected based on appearance. could last longer but i enjoy the natural look and lack of strong flavor.

Nothing special. Didn't think it showed up very well and found it to be rather sticky.
