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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Very Odd Texture
Sampled

This gloss has a nice color, but it feels really weird when I apply it. It feels almost as if it is pure water. I did not like it at all.

Didn't like texture. Not enough color. Felt slimy.

Color doesn't last. Texture is sticky and strange. There are better alternatives, but I'm refraining from mentioning competitors. It's a pass.

Not very good
Sampled

The stain looked like I was using play make up like when I was 4. The color didn't go on evenly and it didn't look good in general unfortunately.

Couldn't use

Sadly I couldn't use it as the sample wouldn't let me get it out of the tube. Didn't seem to be enough inside it.

Yuck

I don't like lipstains like this. Liquid and gross instead of creamy. It only stained in certain spots and came off in others, and it was a terrible obnoxious color as well. Do not recommend.

Weak stain
Sampled

Stainiac from The Balm has a nice packaging, but does not really deliver. The stain for the cheek is weak and doesn't stay nice and in place. I own a handful of theBalm products and love em, but this one, i would skip.

Not for me.

I really didn't like the color this left on my lips. Too pink and weird looking. I definitely would not purchase this product.
