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.

Huge disappointment
Sampled

I absolutely love TheBalm! When I heard this product would be in the March box, I was so excited. After trying it, my feelings changed to disappointment. The bottom of the sample had a gel. I guess the sample had settled or something. Did pretty much nothing for my lips, much less my cheeks. Pass on this product. Epic fail for TheBalm.

Nice Stain
Sampled

Not exactly a my lips but better situation, but I still enjoyed this stain.Didn't have any issues with patching until a couple of hours after wear, but it layers nicely.

Rosy does it!

Great stain for lips and cheeks! I like a multi-purpose product, and this stain works well to give an all day glow for either area. It's darker in the bottle but the stain shade isn't too bold which is perfect for everyday wear. I definitely recommend.

Ok ...

Thought it was ok, I mean it does what it says after a few application to your lips. It reminds me of makeup you find in little girls play makeup smell and texture , not for me

I really like this stain for the cheeks. It leaves a natural looking flush to the complexion.

Just Enough Color
Sampled

As far as make-up is concerned, I am a minimalist. This product provides me with just the right amount of color without making me seem "made-up." I like it.

Nice!

The consistency of this is great, easier to spread before it "stains", it's not a straight up liquid, more like a gel-liquid.

DRY
Sampled

goes on smooth but left my lips feeling dry seconds after applying also, it didn't leave tint like it says its supposed to, mind you i put this on my bare lips, not over a lip stick. it's a cute little sample but not worth the price of a full size for me
