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 did not like this, first off it barely leaves any color, but it also dried out my lips, I don't know how it works as a cheek tint because I don't wear face makeup. I might try it out again since I have it any ways, but I would not spend money on it.

Not great
Sampled

I found this product to have a clumpy texture. It also had a very bright color which was hard to remove. It also came in a very small size for the sample so I was only able to try it a few times before it ran out.

Tween product

This lip stain reminded me of my tween years when I applied Smackers tinted lip gloss. This balm item has the same consistently, texture, & hue as Smackers. The stain doesn't last more than an hour and a half. I did like that it's builtable. But then the downside is you have to use a lot of products to get the hue showing. I used this sample mostly for the gym. It gave me the right lip blush for working out. But by the time I was done working out the hue was gone.

I was not a fan. The color is bland and it goes on very thin so you can't see the color well

This stain doesn't really add any color and doesn't last. I tried a few coats of it, but it still doesn't last.

Did not like this at all. It barely shows up on my lips and does not change the color at all.

This stain didn't lay at all. I would not purchase or recommend. Will keep looking for a stain with staying power.
