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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Loved the color!
Sampled

I absolutely loved the color and finish of this Balm. It looked great on both my lips and cheeks! I just wished it stayed on better :(

Perfectly subtle
Sampled

Wearing full-on lipstick has never been my style but I'm slowly breaking into the lip color world. This was perfect for me because it was just a subtle amount of color to make me feel a little fancier, even if I'm just making coffee all day as a barista. I didn't feel like it dried out my lips at all.

As far as cheeks go, I don't know that it would be my go-to because the color was a little more intense there.

not so great
Sampled

Not so great. The stain wouldn't come off!
Even at the end of the day. Maybe the color wasn't for me!

Just okay...

I wanted to love this stain but not sold on the texture. Didn't soak in as much as I'd hoped.

Very pink
Sampled

I'm more of a minimalist when it comes to lip colors, so this was a bit too pink for my preference. However, I was able to use just a thin enough layer after some trial and error for it to look a bit more natural. Probably will enjoy using it on the beach this summer.

i dont understand stains. This just is like a liquidy gel. It smells odd too. Is that how its supposed to feel and smell?

Too light
Sampled

The smoothness of this product is great, but it does not provide any real staining color on my lips. Disappointed compared to other lip stains.

Just ok

I like the idea of this product, but I had a tough time using it as a cheek stain. I was quick to blend it, as suggested, but didn't blend very well for me. As a lip stain, it works but was not as sheer as I expected.

ok

this blush is ok. I like the concept but I do not like the color - too red for my liking. It goes on pretty easily and it is blendable.
