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.

Natural !!

Works nice for a natural glowing look on lips and cheeks. It takes a little getting used to. I like powder blush much better though.

First time using a stain

I liked the fact that it wasn't a dark color or so bright , but I was expecting it to be more visible. Especially since my lips are already a light pink hue, anything generally changes the color. I would still recommend the product as it does produce some color but it definitely doesn't do a color like normal stain does.

Nice

Good product. I actually like the small sample size. I would prefer that to a regular size product. It wasn't a good color for me. But aside from that, it was nice.

I like the concept - but it needs moisture

This dehydrated my lips (similar to another stain product birchbox sampled recently) - the product dehydrated my lips and I couldn't get the moisture back for a few days. I would refrain from using this product.

good product

I liked this. I have never tried a stain before, and I have used this many times on my cheeks when I feel like my face is lacking color. It also looks nice on the lips for just a smidgen of color. I wouldn't necessarily buy this again, but I was glad to have the chance to try it out!

Amazing Stain
Purchased

I am pretty picky about what I put on my lips. I hate the way some lip color feels. I am not one to apply lip color all throughout the day. I absolutely love this lip stain. I goes on smooth and you do not even feel like you have anything on your lips. I leaves just the right amount of color. I does not last all day but it last long enough and I love the way it feels so much that I don't mind reapplying throughout the day. This was the first product that I purchased from my monthly box. I would purchase again.

LOVED!

I absolutely loved this lip stain. I have had the hardest time finding a red color lipstick that looks great with my skin tone. This was the perfect color and perfect product for me.

Beautiful Pink

I've tried other stains before, and been frustrated. But this stain lasts! And the color is beautiful. One of my favorite samples I've gotten so far! Especially when I'm going for a "natural" look - it is perfect.

The Balm

This lip product lasted all day and is a great color on my lips. I would recommend this to someone.

Absolutely love!

Such a perfect combination -- so very easy to apply on the go, and looks so very natural. I'm pretty low-key as far as makeup is concerned, but this is a must-have.
