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.

Great color
Sampled

After only using once or twice, I came to like this product a lot. I've mostly been using it on my cheeks and I have to say that I love the result. It gives my cheeks a slightly flushed look without looking unnatural. It's very easy to apply and doesn't look uneven which is important

Nice color
Sampled

I have light olive skin, and this shade is flattering on my skin tone. It's just the right amount of red without being intimidating or overpowering, especially for someone who is a lip color newbie or wants something work appropriate. I actually just bought a lipstick similar in color, but I wouldn't be surprised if I end up buying this to wear on its own or under lipstick.

Nice and natural
Sampled

I really liked getting this sample in my birchbox. It is probably the best lip stain I have used just because it is so natural looking and you can add other color on top if you wish. I have smaller lips so I like a more natural look. I do not think the stain lasts very long. I have only used it as a lip stain and not on the cheeks.

Nice!

Love that it works for both lips and cheeks. The color is refreshing and blended in nicely with my skin tone.

Love stains
Sampled

First of all, I love a stain that lasts and lasts wth little product sitting on the lips to transfer to cups or babies. This is pretty much that. The color is a little off for me.

Stain didn't last....
Sampled

I was very excited about this product, but when I put some of the stain on my lips it seemed to barely color them and didn't last long at all.

Staniac!

I loved this as a lip stain. Perfect color without drying out my lips as many other stains will do.
