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 love the idea of lip stains but this one was not for me. It didn't stain consistently and I had a tough time evening it out.

Good sample
Sampled

I was a little Leary of trying a product that went on both my lips and my cheeks, but I really liked this. It was easy to apply and blended well on my cheeks. It also added just enough color to my lips. I was pleased with this sample.

Staniac FTW!!

I love the balm cosmetics and pretty much everything they do. I'm a HUUUGE fan of this stain because it like things quick and easy, especially my everyday look. This works well on lips although it does catch if you have rough spots or cracks. I like it better as a cheek stain. It lasts for EVER. Definitely lives up to the hype.

Not the best.
Sampled

I don't know why but this product just doesn't work for me. I found the consistency to be really off, and it really does not provide much color or last long.

Love this sheer color!
Sampled

I love that this stain is such a subtle hint of color. A lot of products like this are too pigmented for my skin tone. This, however, is just enough color to know I'm wearing something while not looking like a clown. It does leave my lips feeling a little sticky but not enough for me to skip over it when choosing a lip product.

The sample was quite small, a nice color but didn't show up very well.

Perfect cheek color

This cheek color made me change the way I see makeup. The color is so natural looking on my skin. Several people asked me if I had gotten a sun tan.

Meh...

This felt weird and gel-like. It didn't leave a great stain and it clumped to the dry parts of my lips.

Love it!
Sampled

I love the color and it is easily applied as a blush or lip stain. The color is beautiful on! The only downside was that it only lasted a couple hours on my lips, I was expecting it to last all day since it's a stain.
