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 love this lip stain. Its pretty thin and watery, but that makes it easy to move and build so you don't have to get it right the first time. It also lasts a long time and looks very natural. Highly recommend

I use this all the time now. It's just the perfect shade. I put it my lip gloss over it sometimes.

Lip/cheek stain

I was not impressed with the color or the way it blended on my cheeks. However, it did not dry out my lips like I thought it would. If the stain was a different shade, I might have been interested in purchasing for my lips only, not my cheeks.

This lip stain is ok. It felt kind of sticky and at the same time drying as I was putting it on. The color isn't bad - I only put one layer on, and it was a nice natural-looking but bright pink. I feel like with more layers the color could look more punchy, too, which is a good thing. The texture is not great though. It smells nice but the taste is slightly chemically.

A nice shade

I liked the ease of application and the shade of the lip stain. It was actually a lovely and subtle color. However, it did feel a bit sticky, and came off rather easily. Overall, though, I liked it.

The stain stays. I do prefer to use a balm with it.

It's ok but I'd like to try other stains before I'd buy this one. It's very subtle and doesn't last long, but if you're going for just a hint of color it could work.
