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 don't get the hype

I wanted to like it but it just gives the appearance of having eaten a red popsicle. It's an unflattering red on my lips. Not natural looking at all. And I certainly don't want RED cheeks. I'm going to pass on this one :-/

Nice and easy

Sometimes when you're in a minimalistic mood, you just swipe this on and you're good to go. You can apply a sheer swipe or coat it on for more color. I got this as a sample in my free box, only giving it 4 stars cause there should be more colors. Other than that, this is less sticky than say the Benefit lip and cheek stain, definitely less watery than that too.

Love it

Easy to apply. It's perfect for when you want just a bit of color but nothing too heavy. Will definitely be purchasing

Pretty in tube, but not so much on

I was really excited when I received this product in my free birchbox with subscription. I adore trying new lip colors and lately lip stains have been my jam. I really liked this color and was pumped to try it out. However, I was disappointed when the color didn't show or stay no matter how much I put on. :( I will say my lips are pretty soft now haha

So I use this on my lips and it's extremely subtle. I do like the tint color but I would not use it in my cheeks because of the gel lik texture. It doesn't taste like much and I would encourage the creators to add a flavor to it.
