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.

Great if your looking for...

When I got this sample I loved the dark color that it appeared to be in the bottle, but when I put it on it was barely noticeable. In fact it wasn't noticeable at all on my top lip. Although it did stain and hold up well. The color that it was when I put it on in the morning had barely faded all day. So if you are some one who really likes just a tint of color this is for you, but if you are someone like me who likes darker more noticeable lip products then I don't recommend this product.

Very nice as a hint of color and easy to use
Sampled

I really liked the hint of color for my lips as well as my cheeks. It gives a beautiful natural look to the lips and cheeks.

OK

I received a sample in my bonus box.
The stain is so light it did not show up at all on my lips. I used it as a rouge and it is even very light on my cheeks. I prefer a richer tone. I felt I had to use a lot of the product to even have a tint. Maybe it works better on extremely fair people.

Horrible for my skin tone

I hated this and never used it besides the original try. Just not a good color for me.

Nice

It's ads just the right amount of rosy to your cheeks and you can really layer it in your lip for a deeper red stain

Can NOT blend this!
Sampled

I dotted this on my cheeks and tried blending for a subtle blush this morning and it immediately stained the dots onto my cheeks. There was no blending. I had to reapply my foundation to try and cover it up and you can still see the faint pink/red dots.

Not for me
Sampled

This was alright but just not for me. I think it was too bright and kind of weird on my face

ineffective

I was so excited to try this product out because the color just looked so amazing in the bottle!!! , but once I put it on my lips it took several times of applications for me to get a "full" lip look. I don't like the fact that it barely shows on your lips, but it is very easy to take off even though it is a lip stain so that's always a plus!

Pretty color, buildable

The color is soft and pretty and you can easily build the color with this. I used up my entire sample tube, I will definitely be buying one!

Odd...

I really like the color of the product but it feels like I'm slathering on melted jello lol. I feel terrible saying that because I love everything else about this stain. That's my single complaint
