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.

Nice for very light stain

I enjoyed this product; the color is very light but nice. However, I need to apply a chapstick before or after since otherwise my lips look and feel dried out.

So many ways to use this.

I love that you can use this in so many ways. From lips, cheeks and eyes. This is a great product and I like the way I can layer it to make it darker.

good stain but not very long lasting
Purchased

I love the color of this stain (I got the Beauty Queen) and use it on both my cheeks and lips. It lasts on my cheeks all day but definitely have to reapply to lips after a few hours. It's sort of like a gel and not a liquid stain, which I like.

Love it!!!

I don't buy lipstick anymore. It's perfect for someone like me who doesn't like make up but likes a little color without the makeup look. Unless something better pops up, this is my to go to product.

I adore this color on my lips, my cheeks not so much but it gives my lips such a natural color!

Fades Quickly

This lip stain is very bright, but I feel like it fades quickly and dries my lips out. I wasn't happy with the durability, but the color is nice. I wound up using the lip stain with a coat of lipstick over it. That seemed to work well to balance the color and make it last longer.

Very pretty

This product had a beautiful color on the cheeks and lips. Lips must be exfoliated beforehand for best results, however.

good lip stain

Can be layered for more color. I didn't care for the color with my olive complexion, but my sister is fair-skinned and it looks great on her. Stays put for hours.
