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.

nice travel size sample. I used this for lip stain and found it to be effective. Creative uses for this product are evident.

Very Cool Twinsy

Great product in that it's two for one! I like how it's not too bold and looks good on my light skin tone.

Right Tint
Sampled

The Balm Cosmetics Stainiac is very easy to apply and gives just a hint of color. Can easily layer for more color if you like and it dries quickly. The color is very natural and just makes my lips look a little fuller and healthier. I love it alone or sometimes I layer a gloss over it.

Barely there

Stains are tricky, especially when it comes to makeup. We want it all: we want it to be pigmented, blendable, easy to use, and a great color. And this product does almost all of that. For those looking for an intense stain, this one is not for you. Put this on your lips for a my lips but better situation that barely registers as a lip color, and looks totally natural.

Love IT!
Sampled

I love this product! The texture is like nothing I've ever had before in a lip product. So smooth and natural. The color was the perfect enhancement. I really love the suggestion for putting a tiny bit on cheeks too. It's wonderful. I will purchase.

Not too bold of color!
Sampled

I like the color and feel of this product. Light and not too bright or bold. I don't normally wear too much lip color so this was a great product for me to try.

Love this lip stain!
Sampled

This lip stain goes on very smoothly and isn't too heavy. I like that I can layer it to make my lips darker. It also lasts all day!

Good Gloss, Not Staining
Sampled

On the fence about this product. As far as the "lip stain" goes, I don't think it's very effective. But it is a nice gloss with a good color. It's not sticky like a lot of lip glosses tend to be.

I wasn't impressed with this lip stain. I really wanted to like this because I love a good lip stain but I have to put on so many coats to get any color. I will give this brand another try but I wouldn't purchase this product.
