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 was quite excited to try this, but was highly disappointed with the lack of pigmentation. It barely left any stain. I applied it on my lips and there was no color. Cheeks- it blended away.

Yucky

I did not like this product at all. It did not apply evenly and smeared everywhere. I will not recommend this product.

Did not enjoy

This product made my lips tingle upon application. I did not enjoy the color, the taste or the tingling feeling.

Not good
Sampled

I did not like the texture of this product. It says it is for lips or checks but unfortunately it is not a good fit for either. I definitely do not recommend it.

Stain, feel, taste and nope.

I tried this on several occasions and it just wasn't working for me. I looked like a 2 year old who had finished way too many Popsicles and in need or some serious wipes to clean the mess off. It was way too sticky, the color was so not right for my fair skin, and let's not even attempt this baby on my cheeks. Sorry but this was a total bust for me :/.

Did not flow on my lips with any ease and it stayed wet and tacky for too long.

The color was not right for someone with blond hair, hazel eyes and light skin.

Was very excited to try this product as I am desperate to find a lip stain that actually stains and covers my lips with even color.

More lipstick

More lipstick. Seems like every box has one. Wish I could give a better review but I never use lip color. My daughter said it smelled really nice though, which would be a plus.

Used the product once and did not like the way it went on and looked when it was on. I ended up giving it away.
