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.

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.

Nice

Great for no makeup days. Doesnt last too long and it can wear off funny on lips if they are dry or chapped.

I like the stain and application could be just a little smoother and better at blending

I really like this product! While most lip stains are heavy and overwhelmingly bright or dark, this is a product that goes on smoothly and leaves just a small hint of color. This is perfect for achieving a natural, rosy look! I would wear this every single day and will most likely purchase the full size in the future!

It's a nice color. Once applied, it looks fresh, bright, and natural. I also like that it's somewhat of a gel like consistency.

Not my color
Sampled

I was really excited to try this product, but the color didn't show up on my lips. I wasn't a fan of the feel of it as a cheek stain.

Great Dual Purpose Stain for Lips and Cheeks
Sampled

Nifty dual purpose item, as it covers 2 steps of my daily makeup routine. Use this stain on lips or checks to add a shear of color. The product does get sticky after several hours of use; however, an overall nice product.
