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.

Not Good

In theory this seems like a good idea. Felt sticky and the color didn't show. I can't imagine using this on my skin. Please remove from your rotation.

Nasty!

Used this lip stain once and never again! Smelled and tasted nasty and the color was awful. After having it on less than 2 minutes my lips started burning. Not my favorite sample!

I have decided that I do not like "Stains". This product was difficult to put on evenly.It stained my teeth,my fingers & tasted awful.(Honesty,I wasn't trying to eat it.) After trying this,I think I'll stick with the "traditional" lipsticks.

Doesn't work

Not a fan! I have very fair skin and tried this as a blush and had to use soooo much before it was even noticeable. Then I tried as a lip tint and it was so drying and also barely noticeable

I didn't care for this product, it's too thin and liquid like and it smells bad and it feels awful on your lips, too thin to even stain

This lip stain was really thick and the color was way to vibrant for me. I don't recommend it unless you like really bold colors and don't mind think and sticky gloss
