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.

Sampled

I actally already own this product and MANY other The Balm products, so I gave this sample to a friend, since I already have it and LOVE it and I've gained another The Balm fan.

Perfect color

I love the shade of this stain you can control the color so it doesn't go on too harsh

Best stain I've tried
Sampled

I especially like the applicator/bottle that's cinched at the neck so liquid won't run out & make a mess, as I've had happened in the past. Good lasting stain, tho I'm always on the lookout for one that lasts longer than an hour or 2.

I'm not a lipstick lover...

Yep it's true! I exist.. I'm not a person who particularly enjoys wearing lipstick. Never have. When this lip product arrived in a mystery box as a sample I was cautious. It looked too bright and not even a shade I'd consider. BUT! Hold the phone! I tried it out bravely, and I'm head over heels. It keeps my lips a delicate shade deeper than my normal, more pale, pink lips. Has no flavor, no real consistency (kinda water gel like?), and is actually build-able! To make the shade darker just apply a second coat! I really recommend it to those that don't really want to keep re-applying a lip product through out the day! It's magic:)

Color without the trouble
Sampled

This product is awesome! It provides a decent amount of coverage. The depth of the color can be altered by adding multiple layers. Stays put nicely--long lasting and no worries of smudging or staining clothing. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a regular-use lip color. Not as bold as a red lipstick, but a great everyday product.

Perfect for lips and cheeks -adds a fresh not too fussy look perfect for everyday but also ensures color will last when you need it most

My new everyday blush
SampledPurchased

I use this everyday. It's portable and super easy to use, and the color is very flattering. I purchased the regular size, but I'm still using the travel size--there were a lot of uses in that little tube!

AMAZING

This stuff is great. It gives the look of chapped lips without the chapped feel. One of my friends went out and bought it after I made her try it. I'll definitely be buying more when I run out!
