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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

I was very excited to give this lip stain a try but really disappointed once I did - it left my lips feeling very sticky and it had this medicinal taste to it. I can't imagine using this on my cheeks. Very disappointed!

Not a fan of tints

This product is just not for me. I don't know if I am completely incapable of making a tint/stain work on my lips but my application is always uneven and it looks like i don't know what I'm doing. The color was a pretty berry tint but it didn't stay on long so I don't see the point of a stain when it doesn't even last as long as my favorite lipstick.

I love lip stains and really wanted to love this product since i picked it for my August box. It's very thin, and even after exfoliating, i can't get it on my lips evenly without using a thick layer. It's very drying, and even when using my finger instead of the applicator, i kept finding patchy areas. That being said, it's a beautiful color. I guess i'll stick with the lipstick pencils that have a built in stain.

Subtle, nice

I received this product in the color Homecoming Queen and applied to both my cheekbones and lips and it gave a very nice, subtle shade of pink.

This product is more like a raspberry jelly, but it did not completely stain my lips. it colored them a little bit pink though.

It Grew on Me
Sampled

I had to try this lip stain a couple of times before I decided that I liked it. It is very very sheer and goes on almost as if you aren't putting anything on your lips. But the color is subtle enough for everyday wear and it looks really good under chapstick.

This stuff is awesome! I had never heard of it but would recommend for those girls like me who constantly need to have lip gloss on : )

The stain looked like it would be really dark almost a red color, but it was the perfect shade of dark pink. Love it!
