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 lip stain is awesome, and I don't have to worry about it rubbing off ; when your drinking from a glass or sipping on a straw. It goes on smooth and drys quickly. Its a must have.

Bought the Full Size It's So Good!
SampledPurchased

Love this little number. It is sooo handy for that "just pinched" cheeks look and also works as a nice base (or sometimes just by itself) on your lips. Gives a healthy, rosy look. Dries quickly and lasts a long time. Not messy at all. Has no scent and just feels good on your lips and cheeks.

Loved it!!!
SampledPurchased

I loved it so much that it was the first full size product I purchased!!!! Works great by itself or as a base so your normal lipstick doesn't fade!

Hate lipstick, love this

I can't stand the feel of lipsticks. So it was nice to have a product that added color but didn't feel like lipstick.

MY FAVORITE EVER

This product is quite possibly the coolest and nicest lip color I've ever used. When applied, it gives the richest color without being overpowering, and I love how it works as both a lip and cheek color! However, my favorite feature is that you do not have to reapply it as often as you would with a lipstick.

I am obsessed with this product. I use it primarily on my cheeks, but you must blend it right away or it really will stain! But it blends nicely and the color stays all day long. It makes me feel very pretty.

This stuff is great!

I love how the color of this lip gel is subtle. It looks a lot darker in the tube than it actually is when it is on. I used the whole tube quite quickly.

Love this lip stain
Sampled

I will say, this lip stain is NOT long lasting. However, I love how it adds a decent amount of red, without fully committing to a super bright red lip. I'm afraid of red lipstick, but this eased me into doing the red, while being able to tone it down a little with some lip balm over it. I would suggest using some lip balm over it (or even some other lipstick/gloss) to add a little moisture. It's a little drying on me without the lip balm on top.
