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.

Stain, no moisture
Sampled

The color lasts, but it felt really dry, so I need to put lip balm on top of it to have some moisture.

Great

Love this stain! It glides on smooth, stays even and perfect for fair lips with a light gloss or chap stick. Love it!

It's ok
Sampled

This is ok, probably just not for me. I like the sample but wouldn't purchase. If I had a different color maybe I would use it more.

A stain that doesn't stain well
Sampled

I received this sample in my March birch box. I was excited to use this as I am a big fan of lip stains. However, this one didn't really show up well on my lips and didn't last. It also has a goopy sort of consistency. Benefits benetint is the best.

Nahhh

I didn't really like this product because it was a little watery for me. I've used better lip stains before.

This is a great product I would buy it in full price. Worth the money. Great smell and made my lips feel great

Got this sample and there's really nothing very special about it. I hadn't ever really used a stain like this before. I felt like the color it left really wasn't for me.

Sample size is all I need
Sampled

I do like this product - it gives a good touch of color for both lips and cheeks. I don't think I would buy a full size of this product because I prefer a powder blush over a stain. This will be great to slip into my purse to use at the end of the day when I need to refresh my makeup.

No thanks

Did not like this product. The color was so light and did not last. Tried it as a blush also, same thing :(
