theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. 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, lasting tint on lips and cheeks. It has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, so it won’t leave unsightly streaks after you blend.

Made my lips dry. The color was just "eh". The product could use more hydrating ingredients and maybe a brighter, pinkie shade might be more universal. This color actually made my lips look a little "purple-ish"

Not that impressed

It wasn't as effective and there was barely show to the color on the lips. I had to apply it at least 4 times to get it to show.

I will not purchase this product. It does not stay.

Not so much
Sampled

I received the Arrow Boost product in a previous Birch Box and it is so much better than this stain. The Staniac product is very drying (ugh) and the color is poor.

If red is your color, it's worth a try. Long lasting staying power, but I unfortunately looked like a clown!

Drying!
Sampled

I get that it's a stain, but it sucked my lips dry. It looked nice for the first hour I wore it, but then made my lips look crusty. Yuck.

Not a fan...

Disclaimer!: I am not generally a user of any kind of lip/cheek stain. I tend to be more a lipstick gal, or just nude gloss on a casual day, but I was excited to try this nonetheless. Overall, I liked the texture, and that it didn't feel goopy on my lips; however, I did not feel that this product was long lasting... AT ALL. It didn't even last through my morning coffee during my 35 minute commute to work. Very disappointing!

I've used a few tints before I received this however, I'm not impressed with them. If I used them more often than not I wold probably appreciate thEm nore. I do believe that they break my face out so if you have sensitive skin please be careful with this product.. I do believe I had an allergic reaction.

LIP STAIN- NOT MY THING
Sampled

I think this is probably a good lip stain but I don't think this product is for me. It does in fact stain my lips but it ends up looking like I just ate a popsicle after a few minutes.

Not something I would use
Sampled

I really didn't care for this color. I also don't like to use anything but powder on my face because it is oily. This isn't a product I would ever use except for maybe the lips.
