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.

This tint is very natural. I wear it under a gloss. Lasts and isn't drying. Purchased a full size. Waiting for it to arrive. Luckily the sample is quite large.

lip/cheek stain

Other than the color draining me out making me look paler, I liked it. it stayed on all day and didn't look too over dramatic

I really liked this product. I thought it would be darker but for a lip and check stain it works very well I will be purchasing this later down the road

Not smooth
Sampled

It didn't blend well I. My lips so I didn't really bother using it on my cheeks. The color was nice enough but the texture was weird as well as being blotchy.

Very sheer
Sampled

Not a whole lot of color. I did enjoy it as a cheek tint, but on my lips it was very watery and sheer. After two coats, I could start to build color. Was really hoping for color payoff similar to what it looks like in the tube though.
