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.

Really wanted to like this product!

I have put this lip stain every day frequently and need to reapply to get any color on my lips. Not for me, sorry.

Good stain, color off
Sampled

The stain has good "staying" power. I think the color is just off for my skin tone.

Not crazy about it.
Sampled

I really liked the color, but did not like the way it felt on my lips nor the length of time it stayed on.

Love this stain!
Sampled

I am not a big stain girl, and I'm also not one to pick bright red shades usually either, but I loved this product!! Leaves a faint stain, nothing overbearing. Looks great!!

Sticky
Sampled

I did not like that this felt sticky on my cheeks and lips. For the price, there are other products that I prefer.

Lip Stain

I love the balm and they usually have cool packaging, but I didn't love the packaging on this. It weirded me out that this had a jelly consistency, but I loved it. It really did just add a hint of color to my lips and accentuated their natural color. I was surprised when I ended up loving this

Not a Fan
Sampled

I was not a big fan of this product. I have tried better lip stains. It went on really inconsistently, blotchy and uneven. I haven't tried it on my cheeks yet though.

First unsure, now addicted

With my skin type this product was a little unnerving when i saw i got it, but i went ahead and tried it on and it turned out beautiful! Even with my skin tone this stain looked soo beautiful. I'm pretty sure this would look beautiful on anyone!

I really enjoyed this. It didn't dry out my lips and it stayed on for quit a while and doesn't rub off when eating or drinking
