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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

Love this Lip Stain!
Sampled

I'm not the type to wear lipstick and I use this all the time. It's the perfect red, not too sharp, but not too light. Stays on and doesn't wear off right away.

Works well!

This stuff is great! It leaves a subtle but not obvious tint and lasts! Don't rub off. I usually put it on beneath a lip gloss to give my lips that extra little color without wearing lipstick. My only concern is the potential dyes in this product...

I wasn't a fan of theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain. I don't like red lips or cheeks.I like more of a lip gloss and a sparkly pink blush.

Left my lips feeling dry. Didn't like the color at all. The smell of it was weird as well. Wouldn't recommend to my friends.

Beautiful Lipstain
Sampled

I really love this as a lipstain, the color is so pretty and natural looking and stays for a long period of time! Very beautiful and compliments any skin color. I am not too sure about the cheek stain because the color is a little too bright for me considering my fair skin tone.. but overall beautiful lipstain and honesty I love lipstain more than any other lip product so this is perfect!

Used every last drop. Really great, sheer color that looks like a healthy flush on your cheeks - perfect for lighter makeup days. Would totally get again.

My favorite lip stain!
SampledPurchased

I typically use this as a lip stain rather than cheeks. The texture and color feels great, not thick like some other lip stains. I use it alone or over lipstick. Ordered it after I went through the sample quickly!

I hate lip stains. They dry my lips out and look feathery.

Color payoff was amazing and the color lasts forever, lasted me through an 8 hr work day and still looked great
