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.

Not Satisfied

Wasn't impressed with this product. I have only tried it on my lips and by the consistency, I would not try it on my face. Other brands are much better.

Surprisingly versatile
Sampled

I was a bit hesitant when I opened this stain. I am not big on super bright lips and prefer a more natural look. I thought this would be a dud. Once I decided to give it a try though I was pleasantly surprised! You can achieve a bright lip with this by layering it, but if you want just enough color to brighten your look this stain is sheer enough for that as well. A good stain!

Dry

I liked the way it looked on my lips but it did dry them out a bit. I think if used in combination with a moisturizing lipgloss it will be fine.

Blush

I loved this product. I never tried liquid blush before but found it to be very effective and gave good color. You have to get used to putting it on or else you get too much or not enough. Overall I really liked it

I'll start by saying I am not much a lip color gal, I haven't found a comfort level with it but I was surprised to find I felt I could actually wear this. It was a deeper color but with a softer stain.

Perfect for girls who don't wear makeup
Sampled

I decided to give this to my mom. It's too subtle to wear as a blush and I'm not a lip gloss gal. It's just right for someone who doesn't wear a lot of makeup and wants just a hint of color on their face.

My go to for cheek color
Sampled

I liked this as a lip stain but really loved it for cheeks. It gives that rosy cheek look and still looks natural

The product is ok, goes on very light despite the very dark color. It's a bit thin, and didn't really show up much on my skin, perhaps would be better for fairer skin. For me it was just meh, least interesting item in my March box. The sample size and applicator were good though, I had plenty of chances to play around with it.
