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.

Decent lipstain

Really good color, lasts long, can use on your cheeks, but just a tad sticky.

Not quite my cup of tea
Sampled

I am sure others will find this stain to be a great product. I am not a fan of wet, runny lip glosses and the last stain I had was an awful color and took forever to wear off. This was a nice shiny, light color against my lips but not something I personally would practically wear on a daily basis as I am not a natural makeup wearer due to allergies. When placing the product with no other makeup on my face my lips definitely became a focal point even for the color being light.

Kinda Sticky
Sampled

I put the product on and found that it was very sticky on my lips. I liked the bit of color that it gave my lips but the stickiness which did wear off after a bit was not something I would want to deal with

Awful

Awful! Hated it, color was not one I would wear but the main issues were the texture and consistency. I felt like it was from a dollar store in the kids section

This stain is great! It isn't sticky at all, and it goes on so well. I had no trouble blending it on my cheeks, even after using both cc cream and a setting powder first. The color is so sheer on my lips that it works both alone and with other products. I've also been looking for that perfect pink for my cheeks, and I have found it in this product.
