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 rather enjoy the fact that this stain is very light when it goes on and just gives you a wash of color.

Good for some?

Pretty shade, but I am older and had never tried a "stain" before. I may not be a good reviewer for that reason. I found it to be a strange scent, and I don't feel it had long lasting results.

Not for me.

I generally love products that can be used on the lips, but I am just not a fan of stains. I don't like the 'just ate berries' look. This stain is too dark and not even close to a color I would buy myself. I tried the product once and will never try it again. If you really like stains, you might like this product.

Meh

I was initially excited about the brand but it's very sticky and difficult to apply. And I'm quite meh about the color too. Will pass on this

Very nice lip stain

This lip stain really stays on your lips-it only came off when I was rubbing my lips from eating! It makes the perfect subtle pink on my lips! It doesn't make your lips very moist though. I really wish it did come in different colors!

Awesome

I rrally liked this lip stain. It wasn't too sticky and it went on pretty easy. The consistency is nice, I like how when you take out the lip wand it doesn't goop up or too much of it comes out.

LIGHT COLOR

don't be fooled by the bright pink of the color in the tube. The gel inside is very light but it's also a lovely color. Perfect for a healthy glow with out too much color. It's my go to.
