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.

Not benetint but good

Benetint has the best but find this is good for travel so I don't have to cry if I lose it

Good pigment, decent stain
Sampled

I like the color and the pigment is good, but the stain doesn't work as well as I thought it would. It ended up being lighter than the solution, and it didn't stay on as long as other lip products I've bought for cheap.

Love

I really love lip stains cause they make your lips appear naturally pinker. This stain is great, I got it in my extra promo box for my first month subscription. I probably won't use it on my cheeks but I'll give it a try. This stain gives a perfect amount of color to my lips without a heavy lipstick look, it stains your skin so don't have to work about smudges. LOVE IT

Meh.
Sampled

This product can be a little much for someone with a very pale skin tone. It also is very splotchy, so I would definitely not recommend using this as your only blush. Very sticky as well.

Nice lasting color
Sampled

Feels great on lips and has long lasting color. Haven't tried it on cheeks. Good color choice for me. Easy to apply.

Slides right off

This slides right off my lips and skin. I tried to apply it every possible way, but it doesn't stain at all and has worse staying power than a regular lipgloss or blush. Not going to waste money on this.

Eh

It was just not my style, I didn't like the texture and the color was weird to me.

I loved this stain, it went perfectly both on my cheeks and lips. Great alternative to powder blush also!
