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.

This was like putting on one of those cheap lipglosses I wore in my teens. Sticky and had to reapply so many times to keep the tint on my lips.

I don't like lip stains and this product did not change my mind. It was gooey and heavy feeling on my lips.

I felt like this product was kind of clumpy and like it didn't go on as smoothly or evenly as it should have. I also was not wild about the color and felt like it was a little bit much for my personal style. Definitely will not buy.

Runny and icky

Did not like this product At all! It provides zero moisture after application and hardly any color. Gave it away to my little sister as soon as I tried jr

The texture reminded me of after sun aloe. It also didn't stay on my lips very well...I expected it to be more of a long term stain.

I did not find one useful thing about this. I tried it as a lip stain and a blush, but did not like it either way. I was hopeful, but disappointed.

Not really a fan, because it made my lips look like i stuffed my face in a cherry pie. Very blotchy. Dry. Doesn't stain evenly. Just not a fan. Sadly. Didn't try as a cheek stain though, interesting. I don't know how I'd feel putting a liquid as a blush, just smear it on? Hmm...

Sampled this product and immediately hated it. DO NOT like the lack of pigmentation or the simple fact that I'd have to use the whole thing to get little kid red marker lips.

I was SOOOOOOO looking forward to THIS product. No color pay off, drying and just all around awful. There are far more superior products on the market.
