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.

Long lasting!

I love this lip stain! It's long lasting, you can use it on your cheeks, and the color is great for any occasion. When you apply it to your cheeks, it's blends very well and it doesn't have that sticky feeling.

stain without being too powerful
Sampled

I personally prefer natural lips but this stain gives a touch of extra color without looking tacky as long as it was rubbed in very well.

I currently own this lip stain and have received it in a previous box. The extra one is greatly welcomed lol this has got to be one of if not my favorite lip/cheek stain. Well worth purchasing. A little goes a long way ?

Decent for lips, not cheeks
Sampled

I was really excited for this product to show up since I chose it last month! I love a rosy cheek and just-bitten lip and was really hoping this would be everything I wanted. I did like the way it just slightly changed the shade of pink on my lips, but as for cheeks - it was weak. Maybe on very porcelain skin tones it would look great, but I have a decent tan in my complexion and there wasn't much color.

Nice lip gloss
Sampled

This product said you could use it as blush or lipgloss.. I opted to just use it as a lipgloss. I didn't like the feeling of it on my cheeks. I don't normally wear lipgloss but i did like this one. It went on smooth and lasted for quite a while.

I had never tried a lip stain before and probably never would have. After using this product I'm not sure I could live without it!

Wouldn't call it a stain
Sampled

I love stains and multi-use colors. And love every other theBalm product I've tried. But this is hardly a stain. Didn't last and was very sheer. If it was called a TINT, it would have earned at least a 4 stars rating.

Great for lips!
Sampled

I didn't like using this for cheek color, but it was great lip tint and a very pretty color. It lasts a long time and isn't clumpy, dry, or sticky!
