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.

Favorite stain
Sampled

Of all the stains I have used, I think this one is my favorite because the application is so seamless. My fear in every stain is always that I will have sharp lines. I would hate for it to look like I just drew on to my lips with sharpie. This stain blends so well to your skin.

Great Brand, Great Lip Stain!
Sampled

I am already a huge fan of The Balm products and this was just another product that did not disappoint! Attractive labels and color! Works as described and smells good too! Stained my lips all day and the color isn't too bold but bold enough to receive compliments !

Icky texture
Sampled

I do not like the texture of this product. To thick. Not a fan of lip products.

Did not have color
Sampled

I liked the consistency of this product. However, as a "stain" I was anticipating more color. After a couple applications, I can't even see I'm wearing anything. I prefer something a bit darker.

Not Too Drastic
Sampled

I received this product in my first Birchbox and was pretty impressed, I'm a subtle person and I was almost sure that this lip tint would be too drastic on my very fair skinned face, but it was actually a really complimenting color, not too red like it looks in the bottle. I will definitely try this again in the future.

Color
Sampled

I got mine in the sample box. It works really well, but I tend to stay to light colored lipgloss/ lipstick and the one I received was just way to dark for my taste.

Prefer it as a lip stain
Sampled

I know it's supposed to dual as a lip and cheek stain but the color works much better on my lips than it does on my cheeks.

Great Product
Sampled

I love this product! The stain lasts for a long time on both my lips and cheeks. The only issue I have is the taste of the product on my lips.
