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.

Good Lip tint

I like to use this as a lip tint, but do not love as a cheek color enhancer. Though nice when traveling and only have to bring one product.

Great lip stain!

I have been wanting to try a lip stain and was excited to see one in my box! This is a great pink/red color that definitely lasts. I like using this instead of lipstick sometimes because the color doesn't wear or rub off and is natural looking not too vibrant. Would definitely recommend.

Starts off well...

...but then the lovely red color goes pink. Unnaturally pink. The stain part is true, but only the weird pink color remains. I would only wear this if it stained *red*, but seems nice if you want a pink stain.

Stainiac -the Balm

I really like the light color of this product. I received the Beauty Queen sample and used it on my cheeks too for a natural "glow".

Eh Didn't Work For Me

This product didn't work for me as a lip or cheek stain. Either way I went, I wasn't impressed. I like to use products on my lips that are moisturizing and silky, and this product didn't do that trick for me. Also, it was difficult for me to blend on the cheeks, I much prefer power blush. I would not purchase the full sized product.

Nice color

I was very hesitant trying this product, because in the past whenever I had 2 in 1's, they just didn't work for me. But I'm so glad that I tried this! It is great to keep in your purse when you need that mid-day color boost or when you just need to put a little something on your face! Love it!

Good but not great.

I like this product but its not my favorite lip stain. I think the color is a little off for my liking.

Liked the color...

Liked the color but like other stains, product dried out my lips. Not as much as others did but needed to use lots of gloss with it.

Hate it as a lip stain

It might just be me, but this does not go on evenly, and gives me a terrible blotchy color. No matter what I do, I can't get it to go on evenly, and once it's on, I can't get it off.

The Balm

I like this product. I personally don't care for cheek stains but I do use it on my lips. It lasts a while & adds a nice, rosy color (I tried Prom Queen.)
