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.

Lip Stain. Cheek tint!
Sampled

I am not the lipstick kinda girl. I am the girl next door ready in 5 minutes girl, so this product was actually seriously useful. I don't have to add blush or lipstick 10 times a day once wham bam two products in one. A cheek tint that goes on super easy with a light pink color, be careful not to put too much, and then a lip stain both which lasts throughout my hectic day. So although I am not there yet with the lipstick, I'm trying and this helps! :)

Awesome color, not sticky
Sampled

I love this stuff! I have received this as a sample once or twice before via another sample service so I was very excited to receive this again. I enjoy the consistency and the color of the product. It isn't sticky and it doesn't bleed. It is long wearing and looks natural.

Awesome for cheeks!
Sampled

I was not into it on my lips (the texture felt drying and the color was too natural), but I LOVE it as a blush. Perfect color and stays on all day. Purchased!

Fantastic Lip Stain
Sampled

I'm really pleased with this product; it's a great color for lip and cheek stain, applies smoothly and evenly and - most importantly - doesn't come off on my teeth. It's also long lasting, I still need to apply a gloss over it but it provides long lasting color. I will definitely purchase the full size.

Love this!

This is the neatest product I've seen in a while. It adds the prettiest hint of color without being overwhelming for those days you want to be a little more natural. I wasn't crazy about the stickiness at first, but, when it soaks in a little that goes away. I'm most happy with this product in my birchbox this month.

Love this

I was excited to try this and it didn't disappoint. The texture is good and the tint is a beautiful berry berry red. Make the lips look beautiful. Doesn't last long but I don't mind reapplying :)

Sheer Gloss

Although I like to wear more concentrated glosses and lipsticks, I found this one very sheer and pretty. I have been wearing it to work and have even gotten complimented on it!

wonderful

I loved the color and it really worked beautifully. The only issue was staying power. It didn't take long to wear off, maybe 4 hours. But still well worth buying once this sample is gone.
