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.

great stain!

I really liked this stain when I received the sample. it had the perfect amount of color to it and worked both on my cheeks and my lips, just like the package said. if you are looking for a stain that is easy to work with but won't be too powerful, this is the stuff!

This two-in-one did not provide much color on my cheeks and was heavy for my lips.

Great color.
Sampled

Although I like the color and the consistency, wasn't crazy about putting it on with my fingers. Like a brush blush better.

i typically shy away from lip stain, but this was unlike most of the others. it did not dry my lips out or make them flaky.

Okay

Didn't do much for me. I'm not really a big fan of lip stains & wasn't really impressed. Smelled great, however.

Easy to use, a little goes a long way.

Not something I would typically use in my daily routine. Tried it out to see how it works, and it went well with my other products. Simple to use and to blend.

I like the idea of lip stain. The color was not for me and was difficult to remove.

Love it!

I love this! I was scared it was going to be to red for my skin tone, but after using it it's just a light hint of pink! I love it!

Couldn't even tell I had anything on. Was super excited to be receiving this and equally disappointed. Other stains I've received are much better.

So so

It didn't blend well on my cheeks. It was very streaky and splotchy.
