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. 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 is only moderately effective. The color I received does not match my skin well.

Yuck

This gloss is watery and skimpy. After getting it on my lips evenly, there was no color! Pointless.

This is the worst. it is a shoddy attempt at a 2 in one product. it neither shows up as a gloss or blush. if this product ever worked, yes, it would be amazing but for now. so very disappointing.




o far. in no way is this something omeone actu.ally something someone would

Stain? What Stain?

This product has a gel/watery base and did NOT stain my lips. Application after application...Maybe a light blotchy hue that wore off as soon as I licked my lips. For a product with the word "Stainiac" in the title....I was NOT impressed.

This did nothing for me at all except leave my lips and cheeks feeling a little sticky.

Looks nice in the package

I was really excited about this product until I tried it. It feels watery AND thick at the same time. I know that sounds weird, but it's kind of a weird consistency when coming out of the bottom.

The color itself doesn't work for me or last long at all.

Nice product to look at though!

EH

I wasn't impressed. It didn't have a vibrant enough color for me. It was merely "eh" for lack of better words.

lip stain lover, but not this one
Sampled

I wasn't a huge fan of this lip stain. It had a strange taste and I didn't care for the consistency that it went on. I have tried others in the past and I prefer those better.
