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 use it more as a cheek tint. Very timely as I was looking for something similar. May purchase after I've used up my blush.

Very nice for a casual look

I dotted this around my lips. I was worried it would look weird but actually it just gave me this very nice tint. Perfect to wear at work! I would invest in a couple more of these for sure ;)

Prefer as a cheek stain rather than for lips
Sampled

The color didn't really work well on me as a lip stain...it looked rather garish. I'm in my 40's though, so it might be more appropriate/look better on a younger person. However, I absolutely loved it as a cheek stain. It came out a great rose color and was easy to blend. It also lasted a bit longer than powder blush.

Sheer and long lasting

I applied this thinking it would have a richer pigment but it looked more like a subtle tint. I like this kind of simple tint to layer more on for more color. I can also layer it with lip gloss to add some sparkle.

Nice color

I have never used a lip or a cheek stain before receiving this product. It gives a nice color to the lips, I just don't like the feeling of it on my cheeks.

It actually works really well, I'm just not into this type of product. If you like versatile lip/cheek stain type products you'll probably enjoy this. I just don't like cream or liquid blushes.

Loved!
Sampled

I have thin lips. Not much room to apply and color so I've never really used much lip color. But this was a great product. Goes on smoothly. Spreads well. I used a little clear gloss over it and it gave my lips just enough color to look natural and be noticeable. I loved it.
