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.

I am a big fan of theBalm, but this product didn't do it for me. When I applied this, it was just goopy and sticky and didn't apply or layer very well. It could have just been my lips or personal preference, but I did not like this lip stain. I also tried using it on my cheeks, and all it did was make them sticky.

Love the Balm, but not this so much
Sampled

I own a few the Balm products some eyeshadow, highlighter, & lipstick. This product didn't interest or impress me at all though. The tint of color is very light & not a fan of the formula. The brand overall though is amazing definitely try their products!

This would have been nicer in a different shade. This was a pop punk princess red that I would never ever wear. Such a shame

This is not for me! Maybe some would like it, perhaps for theater or movie make-up, but it is ridiculously saturated
color, but very, very dry!! Awful!

Did NOT like this at all!

So this product was disappointing to me. It looked cute and fun in the bottle. But when i put it on my lips there was no color and it dried them out. When I tried it on my cheeks, there was no color. I would not buy this.

Not in love...
Sampled

I am not in love with this. Maybe it is the color I got... but it seems like a very fine gloss that you would get as a child ("pretend makeup") that goes on thin and then no matter how long you let it set, it never soaks in or stains lips... Maybe I used it wrong?

Smells and Tastes Disgusting!
Sampled

I really like the color, but I couldn't get over the smell and taste. Straight into the trash, unfortunately... It tingled on my lips like a lip plumper would- not a fan of that feeling either.

I did not like this product. Very sticky and made my lips really dry. Very red in tube but super light pink on lips.

Not great

I used it once and it's in my junk drawer. It's so easy to lick right off so you can't really call it a stain

I generally love lip stains but this product I found to not work at all and leave my lips very dry.
