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

I loved how smooth this went on- not at all sticky! The color was perfect, you can layer it for a darker look or use just a little bit for a subtle tint.

Not for me

I love the idea of a 2 in 1 product but the color was not right for me, it was too red.

Not all that...

I felt like this product was kind of clumpy and like it didn't go on as smoothly or evenly as it should have. I also was not wild about the color and felt like it was a little bit much for my personal style. Definitely will not buy.

Cute lip stain

I really like this lip stain. It looks great and pretty natural for being bright pink. The only downside is that I wish it would last a little longer. It is a stain after all! I like that I can put it one when I'm wearing minimal makeup, adds a bit of color but doesn't look like I've got too much going on.

Runny and icky

Did not like this product At all! It provides zero moisture after application and hardly any color. Gave it away to my little sister as soon as I tried jr

very natural looking

This product is non-irritating to my sensitive skin and delivers a very natural look on the cheeks and lips. I can feel it on my lips, but it is not heavy or greasy.

I love how this stays on and isn't sticky or flaky. I can put it on by itself and it looks great. You can build the color darker if you want to as well.

Not the shade for me

It's hard to comment on the formula and stay put power when the shade doesn't work for my skin time. I'm more of a neutral person so these bright reds are a shocker!

Decent Product

I like this product as a lip stain and gloss. I don't think it would make a good cheek stain for me because it's not powder based.
