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.

So So

I love a good stain, but this product has so little pigment I have a hard time getting on board. The product is also quite watery. There are better stains out there in my opinion.

Too Runny
Sampled

This stain is too runny and you need several coats to stain the lips which doesn't last very long at all.

Nice texture, but not the best pigment
Sampled

This is a nice lip stain if you want a really simple and natural stain. Doesn't last too long and is rather hard to see.... not my favorite lip stain

This is a great stain

Love the color and it lasts! I put it under my lipstick and have color for hours. Haven't tried it on my cheeks yet, but will soon.

Pretty, but doesn't show up!
Sampled

I wasn't impressed with this stain. Even with 3 layers it still didn't show up that well. Color was nice so it's a shame. I did like that it didn't bleed all over the place.

I have been wanting to try the staniac for so long and I am glad it was through this month's Birchbox! It is an easy stain to throw on before errands or work that is a subtle color that lasts through the day.

LOVE this stain...
Sampled

I've loved this stain for my lips, because my lips are a bit darker naturally, this shows up just enough to look natural, and not look forced. I never have to worry about drinking (or kissing) it off! I have not tried it on my cheeks yet, however, I will!

Nothing Special
Sampled

I believe I have had a sample of this in the past, and was not a fan. I feel that it's not a very good lip stain. It's more of a thin gloss. Pretty color, but doesn't look like what I consider to be a lip stain. I do love this brand, and most of their stuff is great!
