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.

It's hard to find a good lip stain. I didn't feel that this one went on evenly or lasted for a very long time. I won't be purchasing.

This lip stain didn't survive through talking. I felt like after one smack it was gone. Though I liked the subtle ness of the color, I prefer a product that lasts.

the consistency of the product was very jelly like, it didn't feel or look like it stained my lips at all. I do like the color though, i just wish it was stronger and showed up better and didn't feel so chunky when applied.

Just okay

The lip stain was inconsistent coloring upon application, though the color was nice. The stain is too drying on lips and a second, moisturizing product would need to be added on top.

I didn't like this at all! It was a weird consistency and color on my skin, and felt weird on my lips.

Pretty color, not effective
Sampled

This seems to have a good idea but the execution does not work for me. On my cheeks its seems to leave a dot that doesn't blend in, and the lips don't get a good even color.
Would not purchase or use.

Did not like this product at all. It was a deep red in the bottle, was very dry to put on. Not moisturizing at all. Would not purchase this.

Not what I expected

So i thought this was going to be an awesome product and was so excited to get this in my Birchbox until I used it and it was like putting gooey jelly on my lips. It didnt feel good, the color was weird, it was very sheer, almost too sheer. I just expected more from theBalm. I think I just had higher expectations of what this product was going to be like.

I received this sample in my box last month. I wanted to like it, and I was really excited for a product with dual uses. Unfortunately, Stainiac did not provide the intensity of color that I want in lip color, and I didn't like it as a cheek stain.
