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.

Doesn't smell good, plus birchbox has sent me about 5 other samples of red lip stains or tints that are just as good or better than this. It's not bad by any means, it would just be better than the others if it smelled nice.

Natural Look
Sampled

I have never found a blush that I truly loved. Once I theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac I figured out why. theBalm gave my cheeks a natural pink tint. At first, I was skeptical of the very red color and thought that the application would be tricky being that I never used a liquid stain before. However, I was very pleasantly surprised with color and application.

Something Different

I got this sample in my box and it's not something I would normally try myself, but when I did I liked how it looked. It went on smoothly and the color lasted long.

Tastes bitter

I think this product could be great if they could remove or mask the chemical taste it leaves on your lips. As a blush tint its not the best, watery and sticky

I loved this lip stain so much! It lasts almost the entire day and was not sticky or gross like most lip glosses are! It was a beautiful rosy color and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

This isn't bad, but it's not good either. After using this it looked I ate a Popsicle earlier in the day. It didn't give me much color as a cheek stain either - and I'm ultra pale.

I didn't care for this at all. The color wasn't the best. Also don't like the consistency of it. Not for me at all.

NEAT but not my color

I love the idea of stains! however, the color was awful. The product and staying power itself is very nice! It did stain my lips and it actually stayed through the day however, the color was this awful bright pink hue. Looks like i ate a heavily dyed cupcake or kool-aid. ya know it stains your teeth and lips. Maybe if they had more color options maybe Id look more into this.

Got this as a sample and was not one of my favorites. I wanted to like it but even after several layers, the color barely shows up on the lips and I hate the sticky feeling of applying it to my cheeks

Threw out sample!

I tried this hoping to find a new lip gloss. This product had limited color and felt extremely dry on my lips. After trying the product twice, I threw it out. Stick with your old lip gloss.
