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.

Nice hue
Sampled

Beautiful hue on the lips. Build able. Not long lasting for a stain.

Great Product!
Sampled

I like this as a lip stain, but I love it as a blush. I add a little bit to my cheeks and it gives me a nice color without looking flustered or clownish.

Love It

It's perfect, I can make it deeper in color if I want or just one coat is enough to make it look natural. Love It!

It's ok
Sampled

Initially, it looks fine. The stain fades from the center of my lips very quickly while staying on the perimeter. This leaves a pretty unattractive rim around my lips.

Ok
Sampled

I used this product once and i think its ok. It was almost impossible to take swatch off of my hand but did not last very long on my lips. Pretty color and smell but feels sticky.

Great stain but...
Sampled

it's a great stain, but it seemed to wear off unusually quickly. I had to reapply a couple times to get it to last thru the day. amazing color and completely smudge proof though.

Reminds me of the 90s

Like the lipsmackers oil lip gloss they didn't really do anything. The tint is soooo light, which I was a little thankful for because I really don't wear red but I tried it anyway?

Works great as a lip stain but the color is too bright for me would not use it as a cheek again like they suggested
