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.

Did not like
Sampled

I did not like the color I received and I also felt like it removed way too easily. It did not stain my lips. I was hoping for a longer lasting effect.

Nice color but tastes horrible!
Sampled

For something that goes on your mouth, this tastes awful. It was a good color but I had to apply it multiple times to get the shade I wanted. It also doesn't dry quickly which I think attributes to the taste (if it dried faster maybe I wouldn't be able to taste it as much).

Balm cosmetics are great!!
Sampled

This is a nice stain. I am just not a fan of stains Bc my lips are dryer. If you like stains during the hotter months for just a hint of color, you'll like this!

Nothing happened
Sampled

I liked the shade a lot, in theory, but when I put it on my lips, I literally saw and felt nothing...no gloss, no moisture, and no tint/color. Better luck next time!

Color looks great, doesn't last as long as I'd like
Sampled

I love the shade of this product. On your lips it is a light berry, like you've just bitten into a raspberry. It worked just as a stain is supposed to but didn't last as long as I'd liked, and I had to pair it with a moisturizing lip balm so that the color didn't just stain the texture in my lips.

great product
Sampled

I love this product! I would purchase it but I have a similar one to it. it's great to throw on under chapter because it's such a light stain.

Not Sure
Sampled

Not sure about this product. I must start by saying that I only used it as a lip stain. I wouldn't mess with the cheek stain portion of it. As a lip stain it is ok. I like the consistency of it but somehow I thought it would last longer. I put it on and then put chapstick over it so I'm not sure if that is effecting how long the stain lasts. Overall it's an ok product but not sure I would buy it. The sample I was given will last me a long time anyway.

Maybe for lips
Sampled

The color is much brighter once you put it on. Fairly easy to apply, but not a fan of the sticky feeling (esp. on lips).

Not for me

I didn't like the stain. It came off pretty quick and it was not a pretty color.
