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 AS BLUSH!

I use this product as a cheek stain. It is the only blush that has stayed on my face during my work day!

Nice color

I like this as a lip stain, wasn't crazy about it on my cheeks. It dries fast, and stays put. It gives my lips a natural flush, like I just ate a cherry popsicle. I will likely purchase once my sample runs out. You don't need much product so it may last me a while.

Great application, color and wear. Easy to apply and lasts all day. Found that it was a better stain for cheeks than lips for long wearing. Great when you want to add some color, but not a lot of makeup.

I loved this lip stain! I love its versatility..the fact that you can use it on both lips and cheeks! The color is perfect for my complexion. After applying it to my lips I noticed a bit of sheen and just the right color of pink. I used it on my cheeks and the color seemed a little darker but I think it worked pretty well! Overall I would definitely buy this product in the near future!

It has nice feel and it left a nice soft color but I felt it didn't last very long at all :-(

This stain is water based and doesn't have that much of an effect as a lip stain. It takes too long to dry and doesn't add enough color to notice. Would recommend as a cheek tint though as it looked much better in application. Overall, didn't get the value and there are a lot better substitutes on the market that work much better for the cheeks AND the lips.
