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.

It's a nice product. It made my lips feel kind of tingly which was a little uncomfortable. The consistency is a bit weird because it's so liquid.. Overall, the color looks great and it lasted well.

Not a fan. I love stains but this isn't really that effective. I didn't think it put any color on my lips and also didn't make them feel hydrated so what's the point?

I typically don't use lip/cheek stains, but I've given them a try. This color and formula did nothing for me. It didn't even give me that barely there look. And when I added another layer it was not flattering and the texture was sticky.

This product was very light, it did not stay on and barely showed any color on my lips. When I put it on I felt like none of it even stayed in my lips. did not try it as a blush in fear that I may break out. The taste is nice.

For someone that does not really wear any type of lipstick ever this product was not really relevant to me at all. It's too bad it wasn't more nude, I keep getting samples of these bold red colors and it does not match my profile at all. Can't say I love the sample!

Perfect shade of pink

Love the idea of this product! The shade looks very natural but it doesn't last very long.

I was excited to try this lip stain, but it ended up just being okay. The color was nice, and I like the sheerness. But it didn't stay on very long at all. After the initial application dried, it made my lips feel sticky. Overall, I won't be purchasing the full size. I've used better lip stains from the drugstore.

I've used lip stains before, and liked them. It took too many layers of this stain before I had enough color. Plus, after it dried a bit to make it a stain, it felt weird. The color gets a thumb's up, but the application and texture gets a thumb's down.
