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.

Tried a cheek stain, and loved it!
Sampled

I never use a cheek stain before so I was a little unsure of how to use this product. I googled information and found a video tutorial about it. I had to build up the color. One application wasn't enough for me. But once I got the hang of it I really loved the look. And I love the fact that it has staying power on my oily face. Helpful hint: try to do one cheek at a time and work fast. If you are unsure please look at a video because it's worth giving this product a try

Amazing!!!!

I will never use another lip stain again. It feels a bit sticky at first but it sets fast and seriously lasts all day!!!

nice lip stain

I already have benefit's lip & cheek stain that looks like a nail polish container with brush applicator, which I use & enjoy. This is the same kinda deal, expect they choose a lipgloss applicator. It glides on easily and I a happy to add it to my makeup bag. Nice to use after lip balm before adding lipstick. All natural looking.

This lip stain was very glossy, had a nice scent, but the stain didn't seem very intense.

Love this and plan to purchase it!

The color of this lip stain is much better when actually ON. I thought it would look like a berry but it really has a muted tone. It's perfect for layering. The only thing I don't like about it is the taste.

I have never previously used a lip stain. I do like it. However I think I like lip stick more. And I did not like the sample color I received. It was too pink for me.

Wonderful, if you can find a shade that works for you
Sampled

I loved the feel and scent of it, but the color was so close to my natural color that it didn't make any difference, unless I put several layers on.
