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.

Good lip stain
Sampled

Very good lip stain. It is not nearly as pigmented as the packaging appears. It goes on liquidy and dries quickly. I have not used as a cheek stain.

A different shade
Sampled

But I really like this product. I am not one for bright lipstick, but when I have other makeup on, I liked how this looked. It tied my whole "look" together. It didn't stay on as long as I would have liked, but I keep it in my makeup bag and will continue to use it.

Lasting Color

This is great to put on in the morning for a bit of color and the. Cover with clear gloss. I will reapply the gloss a few times and the lip color stays. For me it does not last the whole day, but most of the work day. The shade is much lighter than it appears in the bottle. Wish they had more shades.

The product works well, but is very fragrant... stains just aren't my jam.

I've never used a lip stain before but I am in love with this! I didn't think I'd like the color because the bottle is so bright but this gave me a really nice pink/mauve shade on my lips. I also love how it doesn't feel like I have anything on at all. Need this.

Definitely just a tint.

I felt that this product made my lips look like I just ate a red popsicle. I could see possibly using this product prior to applying another lip product, but not by itself.
