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.

Favorite new beauty product

I love this product! I often wear lip balm, but don't like how shiny my lips get. This product is amazing! My lips have a satin look and they look like my lips are just that shade of product instead of it looking like I have lipstick caked on. It is the perfect shade too for my pale skin.

This week started using it on my cheeks too for blush and it looks great! Looks like I have a bit of color on my cheeks instead of looking like make-up is plastered on my face.

Alright

Initially I was really into this great tint, but then I realized that it really didn't stay on very long and it had an odd feel to it. I think this would be alright for every once and a while, but I don't think this is something I need to have in my bag every day.

Love this Stain

I really love the texture, color and lasting effects of this lip stain. I have tried a few and this is the only one that has really impressed me with all of the above. I will definitely purchase this product when I use all of my sample; which shouldn't be too long as much as I wear it! :)

Love this for cheeks, not as much for lips.

My new favorite cheek product. 2-3 dots on the apples is perfect for a sweet blush. Didn't like the feel on my lips, but I'd buy this product for cheeks alone.

I absolutely love this stain. I use it all the time for a little (or a lot) of extra color. I love that I can put lipbalm on over it and that you never have to worry about it smudging or getting on your teeth.

I love this stain. I had tried one other stain from Birchbox and this one definitely beat it. I use it when I want color on my lips but don't want to worry about it coming off, like for work. I even used it when I went to Hawaii and went swimming in the ocean and snorkeling. I could still have a great color without worrying about reapplying all day. Eventually it does fade but still keeps your lips looking like they have some color. The only thing to be wary of is not to apply too much of it because it can get sticky. I keep it to about two layers, apply clear lipgloss over that and I am good to go. Also doesn't feel too drying.

I had never heard of this product before so I was interested to try it out. Although the color isn't a go shade for me I tried it out and was pleasantly surprised. I loved the smooth texture of it and I liked the look of it on my lips. It's not heavy which I really like. Now I just need to find a shade I really like.

I like using this on my cheeks the best. Can't tell a lot of difference with it on my lips, however, but I am enjoying my sample of it.

Gives lips a nice rosy stain that will not go away. Is lovely on cheeks too.
