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.

Hated it

This lip stain was thin and did not cover my lips evenly. Lip stain is such a great product but this one had uneven coverage and feathered badly. Would not purchase.

I love the balm cosmetics but this product was patchy and didn't last long at all! Even if I exfoliated well prior to applying it was still patchy... As for a cheek stain, it didn't blend out well at all!

I couldn't even see this when I put it on. It just blended with my skin tone. Really underwhelming. I ended up giving it to my roommate.

This was something that I would give a 7 year old to play with make up. The color was awful, and the texture didnt even go on evenly at all.

Horrifying Glue

A truly awful product. It was way too gluey for my lips. It stuck to my lips and didn't come through for the purpose of product.

I tried this product several times with the same results. It goes on unevenly, it's sticky and it doesn't stay. So sorry. It's a miss. Luckily it was in the sample box and I didn't pay a fortune for it.

I was excited to explore lip stains, but this one goes on really weird and the color isn't easy to identify with the bottle. It's not red, it is more of a very light pink and it takes several applications to even notice that you have color.
