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.

Very cute product but does not look good with my skin tone

Not impressed

This lip stain takes coats and coats to get even the lightest of tints. It is very thin and doesn't apply or tint evenly. Used once and won't use again.

No color on my life and its sticky
Sampled

This product did nothing for my light pink lips and it felt very sticky on my lips. Not a product I want to wear for a night out, for church, or for date night. Not a product that I would suggest to anyone.

Gave it to my little girl to play with!

With a name like 'Stainiac' I expected a big ol' payoff of pure pigment stain. I've purchased a few lip stains and I'm a fan. I really like the idea of a multi-use product and also lip color that stays but, isn't a lipstick or gooey gloss. As far as this product, well it seems pointless. No color-payoff (even on my pale skin and light pink natural lips) and no nutrutive properties, which would be the only other reason to bother with it. Disappointed since it was a nice sized sample!

I found the product to be super sticky and the color was odd. I couldn't imagine putting this in my cheeks

Subtle, not really much of anything
Sampled

This product is kind of weird. It isn't a lip stain. It isn't a cheek stain. It isn't hydrating like a balm. It isn't pigmented like a lipstick. It's kind of like after you drink kool aid and your lips are slightly red for a while. It would be better having no lip product than this slimy goop.

Not worth it

The stain made my lips feel dry and the color was so subtle you could barely tell I was wearing anything. I wouldn't recommend actually purchasing this item in its full size.

Garbage
Sampled

Weird sticky goo. It's like some candy product failure they decided to market as cheek color. I threw it in the trash. Stain was ok. But totally sticky and stupid.

Stained too good
Sampled

Incredibly sticky and not a fan of the color. Stained my lips even after the removal. Was too scared to even try it on my cheeks because of my skin tone being too light.
