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.

Perfect!

I've tried many tints before that have either been too sticky or too pigmented. This lip and cheek stain applies smoothly and is sheer enough to layer. I like to apply a little on the inner side of my lips for a subtle gradient lip, and then use whatever is left over on my cheeks for a healthy glow. The formula is wonderful. Will consider purchase!

Stain stays on your lips for the majority of the day

I absolutely LOVE this stain! I have very pale lips and this stays on the majority of the day. You can also layer it for a bolder look. The wand makes the stain incredibly easy to apply to the lips. I have not used the product on my cheeks, but I imagine it would be great there too! I've been using the benefit product for years, but was always frustrated using it on my lips, as the applicator is more of a nail polish brush. I definitely prefer this stain for the lips now!

I love the idea of this, but the product was too drying for my lips.

Love it

This stain was great! It is the perfect shade for my cheeks and lips. It lasted on my cheeks most of the work day and I only reapplied to my lips maybe twice the whole day.

I don't usually like tints and I like this one

I love this tint -- it is way more subtle than other tints I have used. You can do one coat for while you're at work, and layer a few more on for when you leave.

Not a cheek stain

The pigmentation and application is better for a lip stain than a cheek stain

Pretty Color....but...

The color is very natural and pretty, but I found it just a bit too sticky for me. It felt like it dried my lips. I had to use a super moisturizing lip balm all day with this on.
