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.

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.

I was surprised by how much I actually liked this product. It nearly weightless, unlike any other product I've had before. I really used it mostly on my lips, it has a transparent red hue, than blended nicely and stayed put. It added some nice color and felt like I had nothing on.

Nice stain

This color was fun but didn't last a super long time. I tried layering it with other things, lipstick and gloss. I liked it with everything. Then layering made it last longer.

This is one of my most favorite things I've gotten on Birchbox. I love to have some lip color but don't want it looking like I constantly have to put it on. Sometimes I want lip color to look really natural and be able to put on chapstick. This does the trick. It does sort of dry out my lips but hence the lip protection I put on.

This is great for on the go and just to have a hint of color.
