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.

Hard to use
Sampled

I found this stain extremely hard to use. It smeared immediately as it is water-based and takes longer to set. It looked like it was sitting on my lips instead of blending in.

Will Never Use
Sampled

I refuse to put balmy stuff on my face. I do not like the consistency of these products and the sticky feel that they leave behind.

not a fan

I guess i just don't use stuff like this but i don't understand why you would have a lip stain and cheek stain all in the same product. It was too sticky.

Pretty but doesn't stay
Sampled

This is such a pretty lip color when it first goes on, but it does not stay!!! You have to layer it on for it to even show a bright pigment and then it won't even stay on more than 15 minutes.

The lip stain started to flake within minutes after applying it . The color barely showed up due to this .

Sticky and blah
Sampled

I'm a red lipstick girl, and was hoping this would be a good alternative on "no makeup" days, but it was sticky and not very rich color. Into the nope drawer it goes.

Too much

This particular shade is too dark for me. Maybe I will trade it with one of my girlfriends.

Terrible
Sampled

Odd texture and no color payoff. I was skeptical about this concept but now I wouldn't want to put this type of textured goo on my cheeks.

Bright lips

I am going to be honest, I did not like this product very much. It was almost like staining your lips with juice. It left streaky looking color on your lips and stained the lip lines making my lips look really old. Maybe my lips are too dry for this product or it needs to be mixed with something but by itself its not very affective.
