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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

too light

this stain is nice to keep in your purse when yo're on the run but it doesn't have the staying power that a stain should have. the color is a bit too light and doesn't last.

Not bad
Sampled

Nice and light, sheer as mentioned in the description. I pretty much only use stains now for cheeks and lips. Three stars because this one does not seem to last as long as others I've used.

Really bright
Sampled

I am not really a blush kind of girl, so maybe that's why it seemed so bright to me. What I ended up doing was putting it on before my concealer and that seemed to subdue it enough to wear. My husband even asked me if I was doing something different with my makeup, which is unheard of! You really don't need to apply much and it lasts all day long, which is great!

Ok

I guess I'm just not used to this type of a product. Used it once and didn't fall in love with it. Maybe it's just me

it's ok but doesn't last as long
Sampled

My experiences with stains is that the product last nearly all day. I liked how the stain looked when i first put it on but going forward, it didn't seem to last. I liked how it was light and not overpowering but i did feel it wasn't high quality.

Still on the fence
Sampled

Not sure if this really does what I think it should do being called a stain. The shade is ok. The texture feels nice. Probably wouldn't buy. But I'm not a big lipstick person anyway.

Great for Lips, but not much else
Sampled

I really like this product! The stain on my lip is a great color. Not overpowering, but enough color that it is noticeable. I was confused by the packaging saying that you can use it on your face as coloring, cause when I did that it just made me look stupid to be honest & it was really hard to get off!

Pretty good!

Doesn't dry too fast and leave clown marks on my face. Clearly my bar is set low.

Okay but not the best
Sampled

I liked the idea of this product but do not think it was the best. It went on odd and didnt stay on as long as they claimed it would. Would not buy in the future.

A little grit
Sampled

It felt a little weird while first applying it, but the color stayed. It felt a little gritty, but applied a light lipgloss and it felt better.
