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.

Less exciting than it sounds
Sampled

The color and texture didn't work for me in the least. It was overall a less exciting product than I'd anticipated.

Sticky and oddly colored, this is not a product I used after the first try. Birchbox has many excellent lipsticks and glosses to choose from, but this is not one of them.

Too berry on me
Sampled

I really love the lip and cheek tints on the market. They offer a way to get that natural flushed look, which I love. This color was unnatural on my pale complexion unfortunately. It looked too much like I had marker on my face or something.

Stays well. Easy to carry with you to reapply if needed.

Not big on the stain

It fades fast and tastes chemically. Not my favorite.

Love it!

This lip tint was perfect for me, it has just enough of a tint! Not too much color, it's almost a little translucent but you can definitely still see the color! Love it!

It's ok for lips but for cheek? You might want to venture into something you can control a bit more
