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.

Love this product!! Beautiful color, long lasting, and not overly drying. Really glad I was able to sample this and plan to buy the full size.

Great cheek tint
Sampled

I really like this stain as a cheek tint. I put a few drops on my cheek bone and very quickly run in until well blended. And you want to do this quickly because you don't want the drops to leave the tell tell sign that they were there!!! ???? the consistency is sort of like a gel I guess (best way I can describe). The good part is it's very very build-able. The first later or so is very neutral looking (like if you were flushed - ya know the way blush is SUPPOSED to look! ????) but you can adjust for your skin tone and preference. Now as fit the lip color - I am a lip balm-aholic. Real talk. ???????????? that said- I use lip scrubs often-this seemed to 'catch' on any tiny patch of skin and stain to the point that if have to get the lip scrub back out and start over. It is a pretty bright pink(I prefer nudes) and if you like bright pink and your lips are never ever dry -this is your stain. Other than that it's great !!! ????????

This + eos = heaven
Sampled

This lip stain coupled with eos lip balm is a match made in heaven. The lip stain itself is a bit drying so with the lip balm, your lips stays pretty and moisturizer. The texture and consistency is really nice and light. No overpowering scents. The color is beauty queen is pretty but it's more a cool tone color.

Mixed feelings
Sampled

I enjoyed the color and it applies well to the cheeks but when it came time to putting it on the lip it felt slimy and I did not enjoy that

Soft stain

Applies on nicely, but the color is okay. Texture is nice, smooth and not thick. So you on need to apply on when needed

Lip stain

Thought the shade was too dark. Thought it was different you can use on your cheeks as well. Little too running

It's okay...

Product a bit too like a lip gloss shine for my taste. There was not a wow factor for me or a real step up from the products I use now.

Stains, but not in the right places!
Sampled

This stain was completely ineffective. I dotted quite a few dots on my cheeks and blended and most of the stain ended up on my fingertip. It might be the weird gel consistency that it has but you couldn't tell that I was even wearing it! Maybe it would work better on my lips but it certainly did not work as a cheek stain.
