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.

Don't like the color & texture
Sampled

Not a fan of this. Wow don't like how it looks on me and how it made my lips feel dry. I rather use a moisturizer lipstick.

Color not right
Sampled

I have tried out this stain a couple of times. It is a little tricky to get on(not too much) but once it is on it really stays. I don't think this color is right for me or I would have rated it higher.

Sticky and Icky
Sampled

Personally this product is not for me. The texture was all wrong and it felt extremely sticky and rough on my lips. I would not recommend this product to a friend.

First lip stain and I dig it!
Sampled

Before, I have never seen a reason to buy a lip stain. If you want the color, get a lipstick, if you want a little pop and something simple, use a lipgloss. I don't think I believed lip stains work all that well after I tried a few and they flaked off or dried my lips out. This little guy surprised me. Not only does it moisturize and leave a nice color, but it doubles as a blush that makes you look dewy and flushed. I love it and it totally changed my outlook on buying a stain. They're simple and perfect for an all day color that you don't need to apply again, nor worry about the wind blowing your hair into your glossy lips. Love it!

I LOVE staniac. I was very nervous when I purchased this, but went off the strength of the positive reviews. I ordered "beauty queen" and it is so deep red in the tube, I was concerned, but I didn't want to get the more pinkish shade, as I never have luck with pinks.

loved this

This product had a long last with great subtle color. It was not sticky and did not make my face break out; I used it on both cheeks and lips. It made my lips look just bitten and not like I was wearing lip stick or stain at all!

Not impressed
Sampled

I use blush every single day. It's my one thing i never leave the house without applying. I was excited to use this product as a blush but after double coating and blending you can barely tell I have it on.
