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.

Not for me.

I generally love products that can be used on the lips, but I am just not a fan of stains. I don't like the 'just ate berries' look. This stain is too dark and not even close to a color I would buy myself. I tried the product once and will never try it again. If you really like stains, you might like this product.

Meh

I was initially excited about the brand but it's very sticky and difficult to apply. And I'm quite meh about the color too. Will pass on this

Very nice lip stain

This lip stain really stays on your lips-it only came off when I was rubbing my lips from eating! It makes the perfect subtle pink on my lips! It doesn't make your lips very moist though. I really wish it did come in different colors!

Awesome

I rrally liked this lip stain. It wasn't too sticky and it went on pretty easy. The consistency is nice, I like how when you take out the lip wand it doesn't goop up or too much of it comes out.

LIGHT COLOR

don't be fooled by the bright pink of the color in the tube. The gel inside is very light but it's also a lovely color. Perfect for a healthy glow with out too much color. It's my go to.

Cool stain

I had trouble using this as something other than lip stain. Probably because I'm novice at stains. But it is a nice lip stain

Cute sized stain

This was easy to apply on my lips and is versatile for the cheeks. The color stain doesn't last very long though..
