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.

The product works well, but is very fragrant... stains just aren't my jam.

Just a touch!

You only ned a touch of this lip stain to get a touch of berry coloring on your lips. Stays on long.

In love!

I've never used a lip stain before but I am in love with this! I didn't think I'd like the color because the bottle is so bright but this gave me a really nice pink/mauve shade on my lips. I also love how it doesn't feel like I have anything on at all. Need this.

Definitely just a tint.

I felt that this product made my lips look like I just ate a red popsicle. I could see possibly using this product prior to applying another lip product, but not by itself.

Not very useful, applies a little bit chunky, but fun to play with

Not wowed by it
Sampled

I wanted to love this product but I am not a lip-cheek stain kind of girl. I gave it a try and it just didn't do it for me. Cute size though. Just not much of a wow effect after application. Pass.

I love this. I wear this almost everyday. The color is so pretty and is long lasting. I will defiantly be buying the full size.

Lip tint

First application left no immediate lip stain and slightly sticky. After drying I applied lip balm. Within the hour a hint of rose tint appeared. Results are inconsistent after every apply.
