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.

I was really excited to receive this. But once I opened up my box not sure if i just got a junk one but mine was almost completely dried out and the color did not pay off well. Wasn't consistant with its pigmentation.

Sticky and runny. You have to apply an excessive amount for full coverage of color. Unflattering shade.

Poor pigment and product hard to get out of container. You'd probably have v too use 10 swatches for color to show on darker lips and cheeks.

At first glance, I was unsure of what this product was for; however after reading it's a lip and cheek stain. I first cleansed my face and went to apply to my cheeks and I honestly didn't notice a difference. When applying to my lips, they were darker but the color didn't seem to last long. I wouldn't buy this with my own money, but it was great to try as a sample.

Personally I'm not a fan of lip stains they don't moisturize my lips, they are too wet and sticky for my taste....

I did not like this product. I didn't like the color or texture. I'm more of a nude or neutral gloss person myself.

I absolutely love this brand but didn't quite like this product...oh well. Then again im not a big fan of lip products. That's what samples are for.
