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.

Nice product, not too red. Very natural, adding a pleasant color.

Great!

I've tried this product previously, but I'm glad to have received my own sample. I love it! I'm almost out of it so I may hit Kohl's to see if there are any other colors I might like better. I think this a great option for a natural flush!

Pretty good!

I liked the product but I thought that it was a bit too goopy and sticky for my taste. I felt like my lips were a bit dry and sticky at the same time.

good product but goes on very strong
Sampled

overall good color and good natural looking alternative to powder blush, color is very strong and stains quickly if you do not blend it in quickly enough and is then hard to remove.

Light stain for a subtle look
Sampled

I've tried other stains and this one is unique due to it's jelly texture vs a more liquid texture of others. I've only used it as a lip stain and it's pretty light. I tried layering for more color but it just seemed to get tacky and settle into cracks/peeling areas only. It's nice as a light stain with a balm over for a subtle lip look. Good sized sample - not sure I'd need to buy a full size for how often I use lip color.

Great on Cheeks

I did not use this as a lip stain rather as blush on cheeks. Gives an awesome color with matte finish!

Amazing stain! Dries without being sticky and I love that I'm able to achieve different depths of color by using a little or applying several coats.

Will be ordering thus in the future and in multiple colors
