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.

Not as good as I expected
Sampled

Color not very even and definitely could not be the only product used you would need a gloss on top for both shine and color. Not impressed and would not purchase

Great lip/cheek stain
Sampled

This is a nice stain, not too bold. The consistency is good, not as sticky as I thought. Overall, a nice, light, stain.

Stains are a new product to me but I found this one surprisingly easy to use. Because my lips are often chap, this isn't necessarily the best product for me (I tend to need more moisture). However, I think I could use it in combination with a good lip balm and get a nice effect. I like also that I can use it on my cheeks!

Not a Fan

It took about 3 or 4 swipes to get the color to appear on my lips and after it had dried it was sticky. Not a fan

Good for lips
Sampled

This was a new one for me. I don't usually use stain. It stayed on for about a half day on my lips. It advertises use on your face too, but i didn't try that.

Good!

Good product! Didn't love it! Have similar items that I like better! The shade was OK. But it didn't work well with my skin tone.

Not as lasting
Sampled

Not bad but I was expecting it to last longer (on my lips) I like that once it dries it is not sticky at all and you can't feel you have anything on your lips. It does not have a shine so you need to apply gloss over it if you what that shiny look. I wouldn't use it on my cheeks though.

Just So-So Coverage
Sampled

I wasn't thrilled with this product. It is sticky on the lips and felt uncomfortable on my cheeks. The color is very faint and requires many coats to bring any color to my face. This product didn't measure up to other lip color/cheek color duo combinations I have tried.

Not for me
Sampled

I love lip glosses but this just wasn't for me. I thought the consistency was a little stickier than I would have liked and the shade of red that was sent to me ended up being pink on my lips. I felt like Malibu Barbie for a minute.
