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.

Nice lasting color
Sampled

Feels great on lips and has long lasting color. Haven't tried it on cheeks. Good color choice for me. Easy to apply.

Slides right off

This slides right off my lips and skin. I tried to apply it every possible way, but it doesn't stain at all and has worse staying power than a regular lipgloss or blush. Not going to waste money on this.

It was just not my style, I didn't like the texture and the color was weird to me.

I loved this stain, it went perfectly both on my cheeks and lips. Great alternative to powder blush also!

Weird sticky texture.

Mine came almost dried out and clumpy. Didn't even try to use it.

It does exactly what it says
Sampled

This product definitely stands but it's title... stain. I applied this products and instantly did not like how dry it made my lips look. When I decided to take it off... I couldn't. It took good exfoliating to finally rid me of this stain. Be careful when applying because one mistake... good luck.

A lip product I will actually wear
Sampled

I am not one for lip products (outside of chapstick/burts bee's/carmex). I put this on and can see the color impact and it feels lightweight. The color is noticeable but not overwhelming, which is fantastic. I've used it on my cheeks once, but I love it on my lips. It doesn't dry them out and it doesn't feel goopy. I'm not sure how long it lasts, because I usually just put it on before I leave and never think to check it again, but I definitely feel confident after using it.

great

the color and pigmentation of this product is amazing (as i expect with this brand) and i love the format. the product itself feels very lightweight on the lips and lasts for a long time.

Not for me

Will appreciate more natural and neutrals for my lip product colors. This was too bright for me
