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 usually like tints and I like this one

I love this tint -- it is way more subtle than other tints I have used. You can do one coat for while you're at work, and layer a few more on for when you leave.

Not a cheek stain

The pigmentation and application is better for a lip stain than a cheek stain

Pretty Color....but...

The color is very natural and pretty, but I found it just a bit too sticky for me. It felt like it dried my lips. I had to use a super moisturizing lip balm all day with this on.

Ehh

It's alright.. it's a lot more pigmented when I search it on my hand but I applied several coats onto my lips and it didn't really stain it just looked like I drank red kool aid. Also it came off after 10 minutes:..

sticky, drying.

This product is fine on the cheeks for a nice natural look. On the lips, though, it's a mess. Sticky and awfully drying. I felt like the moisture had just been sucked out of my lips a few minutes after applying, and I couldn't even see any color! This one was no good for me.

Instantly loved it

It is very lightweight and natural looking which I love, stays put for a long time. Scared to try it as a blush but as a lip stain I would absolutely buy it again.

I'm not of fan of lipstick in general so stains areally great for me. This one goes on easy, is easy to layer for darker shades and I really love the color.
