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.

Awesome color tint that makes it look like you are not wearing any lip product. I really thought it added something extra to my day look.

Doesn't stay very long

Looks amazing on my lips for the first 20 minutes. Then after I talk or eat it is instantly gone. Didn't try it on my cheeks since I'm not a big fan of cheek stains.

Lip Stain

The packaging is pretty, logo is cute. However, it completely dried out my lips and I wasn't too impressed with the color. This may be more suited for someone with a different skin type, but for now my search continues for a quality, low-maintenance lip color.

Perfection!
Sampled

This is perfection in a tube. I use this as a blush and it adds just the right color to my cheeks. It keeps me fresh and bright looking all day long. This is a staple in my everyday makeup routine. Love it!

Nice Color

This stain is great! This product is MUCH prefereable since I get a longer last color, that only needs chapstick or clear balm to put moisture on your lips.

I sampled the Beauty Queen color, and got about 8 hours of wear out of it.

Solid product

I own this lip stain in Beauty Queen. I had purchased it even before subscribing to birchbox. It's a very pretty color and I've been complimented on it multiple times. It does have a pretty good lasting time, though reapplication is usually necessary midday (generally after lunch, which is pretty understandable). I find it easy to apply evenly and I can already tell the full size is going to last me for quite some time. Certainly worth the $17 given how little I need for each application.

I like it in theory...

I really like the idea of a lip stain, but when I put this on it looked like I just had a close encounter with cool-aid. Not very flattering

Great color

I received Beauty Queen and it's the perfect color of pinky magenta for fair skin girls! I really like how it's buildable. I 100% recommend this product.

This is my go to stain! When I want a nude but plump lips, I just apply this in the inner side of my lips for the perfect pout.
