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.

Just what I was looking for
Sampled

This lip stain is exactly what I wanted it to be, easy to apply, providing subtle color that lasts for hours. It leaves your lips looking like you just drank a glass of cherry kool-aid, only better!

LOVED it!
Sampled

I loved this stain and use it every day on my lips! I really like the applicator, it's not like some stains that look like a felt marker. The consistency of the product is wonderful, it's very light and your hair will not stick to your lips if you apply before heading outside on a windy day!

I don't really like the color itself, and I don't really need any more lip glosses so I won't use this entire sample

I really enjoyed this product. I have purchased other products from theBalm and have never been disappointed. Great color and the stain stayed on all day.

Hint of tint

This is the perfect lip tint/stain for my coloring. Don't be scared by the red! It looks very natural and lasts a long time.

Just Okay
Sampled

This product is just okay for me. I love the color (Beauty Queen) and it seems to last decently well (if you have to dab moisture off your lips after drinking, some color will come off on the napkin but your lips will still be tinted). My issue is that this lip stain actually seems to dry my lips rather than moisturize them, which is a bit of a deal-breaker for me. This is my second time trying this product and I just can't get past the drying effect.
