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.

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.

Nah

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.

texture and color not impressive. adheres to your lips and dries them out

I'm not a huge fan of stains anyway, but especially in this shade I will not be wearing it

I had to use alot to get an effect, and the consistency and texture of the product made it difficult to spread evenly.

Did Not Love
Sampled

I was very excited to try this. I love stains and love the color. I did not love how after half an hour of wearing it the color was gone and most of the balm had balled up and was flaking away. Nope.

The stain hardly showed up, and it left my lips very dry. I definitely would not recommend.

Didn't have much pigment. I wouldn't buy this product full size. Not very long lasting. Didn't care to much for it.
