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. Our motto: 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 tint. The tinted gel leaves a lasting stain on lips and cheeks. Since it’s water-based, it has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, which means it won’t leave any unsightly streaks behind as long as you take care to blend well. Use a single coat for a subtle look or layer it on for a more visible (yet still discreet) hue.

I loved everything about the product except for the most important thing, it's effectiveness. It took so many coats to get the color evenly on my lips. I just about used the whole bottle. Wish it went on with 1-2 coats. I would maybe purchase this in the future.

looks like a child's play lipsticks

Doesn't stay on and doesn't go on smooth. Not really for an adult woman but ok for a teenager

Your nice average stain...im not really into using them normally but this one wasn't over drying. Decent staying power. But probably wouldn't purchase it.

Hate it :(

I was really excited to try a lip stain but this stuff is rubbish! It didn't go on smoothly and gathered up weird on my lips. Nope.

Not a ton of color
Sampled

It doesn't give your lips a ton of color, and the tint ends up getting on the skin around your lips so you can't get a smooth look

I haven't used it as a blush yet but as far as lips I do like the color but it really doesn't seem to last long. I've used other stains that last for many hours and this doesn't stand up to those as far as time it stays put.

Dried out my luos

This product is a pretty shade and smells good but it dries out my lips. I feel like I need to apply Chapstick after every time I use it.

Just Okay

I was excited to receive a lip stain in my monthly box. However, I had to apply a lot to see any color. I am also allergic to many lip products. My lips started burning within 10 seconds. I won't be purchasing it.
