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 loved the color in the tube. As a cheek stain it didn't blend well and was a little too red for my complextion but thats okay because I knew it couldn't be right for everybody; with that being said I tried it as a lip stain and I layered it and let it dry. I was disappointed because it didn't last and it had an awful feeling on my lips- sticky then dried out :(

Great stain

Taste a little funky but it's a good flat stain. Lasts a long time.

Sticky...

This was sticky and a little too red for my taste. I did not like it on my lips at all. I did try it on my cheeks but would have preferred it be a different shade.

Went Bad Fast

I had this sealed tight but the product still dried up really quickly. Less than 4 months old and I had to throw it out.

awesome

Stains the lips for a long period of time. Great use the only thing I would recommend is to but Chapstick on before you apply it because it does tend to dry out your lips

Lasts forever

I've never used a lip stain before so I don't have anything to compare this to but I loved it. It went on like gloss, dried, and stayed on for most of the day.

love this
Sampled

I love this stuff. I've been using this lip stain so much the past few month and I'm getting down to the bottom. it's a great every day lip stain for me. it's not too over the top in a night out kinda look but you can tell I have some color on my lips. And it stays! Oh my gosh does it stay! I hate to leave lip stick on glasses and straws but this stuff really stays on!

Eh

This product definitely makes your lips redder but it burns a little and stains them and doesn't really come off if you don't like the color. But for a quick color it does the job.

Nothing special
Sampled

Felt like there was nothing too special about this. It was a clear pink gloss, and it felt a bit thick, and the color isn't one I would wear every day.

FAVORITE stain. I used it on my wedding day and had lasting color all day. The shade is fun without being obnoxious. It dries relatively quickly and I think I barely touched it up if at all. Really great product.
