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.

Love!
Sampled

Love this product! I'm not one that usually wears much lipstick or glosses, I feel like they feel/look to heavy on me. But this was amazing, just the right amount of color! And it wasn't too sticky either, which is another reason I don't usually wear lip products.

Weird texture
Sampled

These have an alright color pay off, but not nearly the long wear that you'd expect from a stain. It also has a weird gritty texture.

Not one of my new faves! :(
Sampled

Not really a fan, because it made my lips look like i stuffed my face in a cherry pie. Very blotchy. Dry. Doesn't stain evenly. Just not a fan. Sadly. Didn't try as a cheek stain though, interesting. I don't know how I'd feel putting a liquid as a blush, just smear it on? Hmm...

Great multi-purpose
Sampled

This product is great! I use it on my lips, both alone as well as over lipstick and on my cheeks! Love multipurpose products to cut down on clutter in my bag!

NOPE!

Sampled this product and immediately hated it. DO NOT like the lack of pigmentation or the simple fact that I'd have to use the whole thing to get little kid red marker lips.

I gave it a 1 cause I HAD to rate it.
Sampled

I was SOOOOOOO looking forward to THIS product. No color pay off, drying and just all around awful. There are far more superior products on the market.

Tacky but good tint
Sampled

It's pretty tacky and the color is strong. If you want a nice flush with a cleaner face it works great but didn't work well over my foundation.

Lightweight and fun!!
Sampled

This product is fabulous! It is very lightweight and doesn't feel sticky at all. The color is very flattering to a variety of skintones.

suprising
Sampled

Immediate thought after applying, this feels akward. It was almost jelly like and didn't seem even, but after a few rubs it blended to a beautiful natural red
