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 never used a lip stain before so I was a little surprised at the texture. Would have liked it to be a Rollon with a metal ball. It went on cool and smooth but dried quick. I think it leaves a natural color that you can make glossy with a light lip gloss.

Not for me

I enjoyed the shade, but I do not like stains and when I put this on my lips, I did not like the feel of it.

Pretty good.

I really liked that this stain did not apply extremely dark like other stains that I have tried. It was a little drying but not nearly as bad as other products.

Hint of color
Sampled

When I first pulled this tint out of my box I was intimidated by the dark red color. However, when I put it on it add just a hint of a pretty pink to my lips. It looked completely natural and lasted

Did not like!

I thought it was too thin of a consistency. It was like water so it was runny.

Lip stains are my personal favorite type of lip product! This stain is GORGEOUS! It has amazing staying power and isn't too drying on my lips! Will definitely be repurchasing!

I have lip allergies, and this did not trigger a reaction. However, it did tend to dry my lips out more than other products I have ordered.

Average Rosy Stain
Sampled

This product has a gel like consistency and appears a very bright magenta in its packaging, but sheers out nicely when applied to cheeks or lips. It is a very pretty color for a short time, but fades quickly on me! And is quite drying on the lips. No better than any other cheek/lip stain out there, but not a terrible product.
