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.

I use it for my lips more than my cheeks because I love the color it turns. It's very moist feeling and lovely.

Pretty color!
Sampled

Really liked the color of this product. I do understand the long last effect of it, but it got all over me and it was hard to remove from my hands, which tells you that it does last!

good soft color
Sampled

its a good lip stain but be careful not to put too much on; also, gloss can go over the stain easily and helps keep the color.

Not a bad lip Stain
Sampled

I wouldn't use this as a cheek stain but for a lip stain I actually like it. It stayed on well and the color actually looked good too!

Not Good
Sampled

In theory this seems like a good idea. Felt sticky and the color didn't show. I can't imagine using this on my skin. Please remove from your rotation.

This stain goes on smoothly without being dry and sticky like other stains. Love the color. Wears well and long lasting.

Didn't love or hate
Sampled

I think it just wasn't for me. Didn't love or hate it but want a huge fan of the consistency or how many coats I had to use to see a notable difference.

Good color- long wearing

I liked this stain, both the color and the way it felt and stayed on. Good sample and price is not too bad either
