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.

Weak stain
Sampled

I was excited to try the Stainiac. The cost always put me off. I was really disappointed in the poor pigmentation. Try Benefit stains instead.

not for me

Im not sure if doing a profile even helps because its aparrent this was not for me. I'm to dark for a stain like this and ended up giving it to a Coworker who loved it .... so i guess its ok if you're the right shade

Pretty, but not so great for the tanner skin tone
Sampled

I was really excited to try this out but didn't love it. It barely stayed for an hour and didn't taste or smell too great. Try again guys, love the idea- execution was just ok.

awesooome!
Sampled

Soooo much better than benetint! the gel is much easier to work with, the reddish color gives the prettiest flush, no red streaks across ur face. long wearing too, though i used it with a lip balm on my lips which decreases the longevity. lasted all day on the cheeks. the sample size was pretty generous, and the perfect size for my travel makeup bag. yayyy!

Not bad

For the type of product it was alright. I kind of felt like I was putting cool aid on my lips. It didn't make it moisturized or anything.

This is a wonderful product! Made my lips have a healthy and rosy glow. It wasn't drying and yet it was long lasting. I'd definitely recommend this lip and cheek stain.

I love the color and consistency of this product. It is definitely buildable- perfect for a natural look or a bright pink.

Versatile Lipgloss
Sampled

I feel like the biggest appeal of this product is its versatility. Perfect for a low key girl on the go. I liked the effect it had on the lips - a subtle and sexy just bitten look. I'm pretty committed to creme blush, but I like this product as a throw in your to-go-bag option because the effect on the lips was pretty impressive.

eh.

I prefer stronger pigments, this was very, very sheer. It's nice if you like something more natural. It doesn't dry you out, which is nice. I just feel like a name like stainiac would have a stronger lip stain.
