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.

This is just awful, does NOT go on well, and it certainly does not stay more than 5-10 when you do put it on your lips, had to put a lot on to even get a hint of coloring on cheeks. It is a shame, really, because the color was pretty.

hated this product but not the products fault

I have big dark lips and this did nothing for me... so if you have the same it will not give you the moisture that you need for a long period of time and I did not like the color it made with my dark lips

Looks like I ate a Popsicle

I had to give this away. It looked like I was 10 years old and just ate a Popsicle, the way it stained my lips. Didn't like it whatsoever

Strange Consistency
Sampled

I wasn't a big fan of this. The consistency was sticky and dried firm. The color was not good for my complexion. It was fuchsia .

Not a huge fan of this lipstain! Unfort. This was my least favorite in my box. But that's ok that's what birchbox is all about. Sampling items that I wouldn't normally buy.

I do not like this product at all. It has a very unpleasant texture and smell. It did not stain my lips very well. If you want an amazing lip stain go for Benetint nothing can compare.

where is the stain?

Call me colorblind, but I can't see any color in of this stain. I love the idea -- and use cheek stain all the time, but this product does not work on lips, a bit better on my cheeks, but not suet should deb sold as a two for one.

Awful
Sampled

I wasn't familiar with lip stains before this arrived so I was excited to try it out. The excitement was short lived. It's too thin and oily, causing it not to stick to the lips. There is a slight change of color but that change is dramatized by the dark line it creates as it begins to dry. Tried twice and threw it away. I will never use this product again.
