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 it

This stain is great. It's a great pop of color. The only thing I didn't like is it's a bit sticky after you put it on so I just put on lip balm over it and it's fine.

Perfect

I was bummed out when the email came and I couldn't get the sample I wanted so I thought I guess I will settle for this. However i am so glad I got this. Best product ever! It added just the right amount of color to my lips that highlighted them for that natural look or I could add more for a more dramatic look. Good for a in a pinch when I forgot blush as well!

Love!

This product is fabulous! It lasts all day and works well as a natural red tint on your lips. I am so happy I had this product in my birchbox and will be sure to purchase it when it's gone!

Not much of a "stain"

Not really into the color, and have used lip stains that actually work as a stain.

Great

This stain is great, it leaves a very nice light tint, perfect color I want! Although, the consistency is a little liquidy and the actual color is not applied very evenly. The size of the sample is tiny though, and does not have as many uses as I would like.

Uncomfortable on my lips

I did not like how this made my lips feel. They felt tight and dry.

I like this product but it doesn't last very long. It has a nice consistency and it's a pretty color.

Great color and consistency

Love this liquid lip and cheek stain! I have been using it more on my cheeks because it seems a little too wet to put on my lips, but the color on my cheeks is great. Love using this!

great stain
Sampled

What an awesome product! It creates a great color and it stays for quite a while. I also like it on my cheeks. The only thing I don't like is that it can create a sticky feeling on my lips, but that's easily fixed by putting lip balm on first. Love love love it!
