theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. 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, lasting tint on lips and cheeks. It has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, so it won’t leave unsightly streaks after you blend.

It was a very pretty stain just didn’t suit me , I found the formula a little dry. If it’s red I need liner ,I couldn’t line it I can’t wear it.

stains, but not consistent

So as part of joining Birchbox, I was able to get another box. The Balm's Stainiac was in it, and I thought that is would be cool to use. When I looked at the product, it was really clumpy and had a lot of air pockets in it. It also looked coagulated... but I thought it was a gel, so I went to use it. it glided on smooth, but patchy. Okay... and it was really sheer. So I went to try a second coat. You never know, it could build, but since the 1st layer wasn't smooth, it made the 2nd attempt really patchy. So I liked the color, but the rest of it could be that it was a bad batch. Would I want this again... no, but I am glad I could try it out.

Love this product, but wish it came in different colors that are less intense. I love the idea of a stain, and this was great!

Subtle but sticky

I was pleasantly surprised by this stain. It looked like it would be too dark, but it adds the perfect touch of color for my lips. It is a little sticky, but putting a gloss on over solves that problem. Because it's sticky I would not want to use it on my cheeks

The color stayed on my lips well, i just didn't love the shade. But on my cheeks.... super fresh looking. It wakes my face up without using anything else.

I never got to try the product because I found it dried and solid in the tube. I wouldn't recommend it.

I really liked this product. I don't know it was a good product, but I will probably never buy it because it dried too quickly to me.
