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.

uneven color

I have never used this as a cheek stain but as a lip stain it just didn't work for me. I had difficulty getting an even color across my lips. Some spots were darker and some were lighter. It did not give the clean look I like.

Didn't like the color, the texture, the way it felt on my lips, or the way it dried out my lips. Don't get this product

Love the concept of these type of products. But this gave me absolutely no color pay off. I don't know if it's my skin color, medium/tan, but this didn't work for me.

Disappointed

I wanted to love this product for a lip stain but I felt its watery consistency was unpleasant and the color did not last long at all.

there is not one thing I liked about this product... I didn't like the consistency (watery), nor the color (too red and too light at the same time), and the worst was the taste (yes, I know it's a lipstick and I didn't taste it on pourpose, but just by touching your lips tastes horrible...)

This lip stain is awful when I applied it to my lips it only adhered to about half of my lip.

Too Watery
Sampled

The gel formula was too watery for me. I prefer a little bit more substantial lip gloss. The color was fine though.
