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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

Just don't understand the purpose, not much color payoff, not moisturizing. Not for me.

Pleasantly Surprised
Sampled

The color looked way to red for my taste but I wound up pleasantly surprised. It went on much lighter than it looked and it was great. I love that I can put it on my cheeks or lips.

Really great product for a VERY natural glow. Would probably be really great with a BB or CC cream foundation base.

Great color

You can choose to build it up or just have it stain your lips a little, it also makes it easier to put lip balm or gloss lever it

Good try.

Probably would work very well if the color wasn't so faint.

Was indecisive whether or not to buy. Got good use of it but feel like it might be cheaply made. Would not stay on for a long period of time.
