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.

Staniac

A stain implies permanence. My lipstick is more permanent and absorbs more evenly than Staniac.

Not that great.

I really wanted to like this gel stain, but the color was just too pink, not red like it looks in the tube. It is buildable, but put more than a few layers on and it starts to get really sticky/yucky.

I'm not too sure about this one. Didn't really stay on like I'd hoped it would. I've used stains before and it's smoother than most, but just didn't "stain".

not a huge fan of this product. The stain was very slick and didn't last long on my lips. I didn't like the color it produced on my cheeks as a blush either.

Love the name just not the product. Difficult to blend and the color isn't forgiving if you misplace it.

Too runny. And i honestly couldn't even tell i used it on my lips. It did tint my cheeks as promised but nothing exciting. Wasn't at all impressed with product. I'll stick to my Lancome or Clinique lip products.

Not the best lip/cheek stain - it actually made my lips feel like I was at the dentist...like they were numb! The product did what is said it would, but I hated the numb feeling and the taste...would not recommend.
