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.

It's alright

You have to use a good amount to make it visible. It also leaves your lips pretty dry.

A little blotchy on application, but long lasting and a good color. It does bleed some.

enjoyed the color but not crazy about the texture
Sampled

I really liked the color this product gave, I like the subtleness of it. At first I was disappointed because I don't like lipgloss but once I tried it on my cheeks; I was able to get over the gloss feeling from it. I don't know if I would by a full size product but it was definitely nice to try!

Nice lip stain
Sampled

I really like this lip stain. I like subtle lip color, and this has a berry tint that is not overly bright. The consistency is a little thin and it does get darker with subsequent applications. The taste is a bit on the chemical side until it dries.

Over stains

This worked better than the previous stain I was sent but I feel Birchbox just keeps sending watered down koolaide. Not a fan of stains after the last few samples I have gotten

Was apprehensive at first because it would be too bright but it was actually very natural looking.

Perfect

A little sticky at first but once it dries, I love the subtle color. Last several hours before I have to reapply.

I've never used a stain before, but this seems to work well. It gave me some color for most of the day.
