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.

Didn't like it
Sampled

I hated this product. It doesn't stay put and the texture is kind of weird. Also, I hated the color.

Like Jell-O
Sampled

I can't stand this stuff. It has the consistency of halfway-set Jell-O. It didn't do much for my lips, and I shudder at the thought of applying something with this consistency to my cheeks. I'm not a fan of stains to begin with, but I gave this one try. I tossed it right away. I wouldn't recommend it!

Not a very deep color for a stain
Sampled

I was not very impressed with this product. The color was nowhere as rich as i was expecting it to be when applied, and it wore off easily. I had to reapply multiple times during the day. One thing I expect with a stain is for it to last, and that was not my experience here. I was very excited about receiving this in my birchbox....only to be let down

the Balm

This is just awful, does NOT go on well, and it certainly does not stay more than 5-10 when you do put it on your lips, had to put a lot on to even get a hint of coloring on cheeks. It is a shame, really, because the color was pretty.

hated this product but not the products fault

I have big dark lips and this did nothing for me... so if you have the same it will not give you the moisture that you need for a long period of time and I did not like the color it made with my dark lips

Looks like I ate a Popsicle
Sampled

I had to give this away. It looked like I was 10 years old and just ate a Popsicle, the way it stained my lips. Didn't like it whatsoever

Strange Consistency
Sampled

I wasn't a big fan of this. The consistency was sticky and dried firm. The color was not good for my complexion. It was fuchsia .

Eeeeehhhhhh

Not a huge fan of this lipstain! Unfort. This was my least favorite in my box. But that's ok that's what birchbox is all about. Sampling items that I wouldn't normally buy.
