theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac

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.

Perfect Lip Stain for Every Day

This lip stain looks amazing on. It's so natural looking. I can wear it when I barely have any other makeup on and it makes my lips look so naturally rosey flushed. It doesn't dry your lips out at all. Nothing like other lip stains I've tried.

Great flexible color

I keep this in my bag for on the go- it makes touch ups easy. I found that it lasted longer on my cheeks than on my lips. The color is nice and bright but not unnatural.

mostly good!

I love the fact that this stains your lip rather than having to apply constantly, but the color isn't quite rich enough to read lipstick, so I always end up supplementing so it doesn't seem as though I simply have "popsicle mouth."

I didn't give this one 5 starts because after you apply it and it dries it feels like you should put some kind of chap stick on to make your lips feel silky and smooth. I do like that you can apply one layer for a lighter color or several layers to make the color darker. user preference.

I love the way this blended so effortlessly. And with my light/ medium olive complexion it was the PERFECT COLOR.

Didn't like the color, the texture, the way it felt on my lips, or the way it dried out my lips. Don't get this product

Light and pretty

Although it doesn't stay on long, this was light and the shade would match most skin types.
