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.

not crazy about it

I was interested to try a lip stain, and while I appreciate the fact that it wasn't dry, it didn't last long and was slightly difficult to apply due to the aloe in the product.
The color was nice, and would be something I would consider continuing use if it lasted more than a few hours.

Nice but doesn't last too long
Sampled

This lip stain (although I've never tried another brand lip stain) doesn't last too long on your lips. Used on the cheeks, it seemed to last all day but the lips I had to keep reapplying. Also, at first I made the mistake of using over chapstick which was pretty ineffective so this morning I tried it on dry lips. It doesn't feel nice to apply... just feels like dry lips and I can't really put anything on over it to moisturize. I like the idea of it but not sure if I would buy this. I'll think about it...

Iffy colour and very fast drying.
Sampled

Stain works quite well and dries fast. Almost too fast if you are not used to using stain on your cheeks. The colour is not great on the lips with my skin tone, unless I layer it.

Great color that lasts
Sampled

It's easy to apply and I only needed one application to get a soft flushed lip color. Normally my lips looks color within minutes, but this lasted hours. It's not greasy, which I love. It also didn't dry out my lips. Definitely a much have.

This lip stain is perfect on it's own for an every day look. It just adds a little flush color to your lips or cheeks and works wonders. Also smells great.

It is just okay
Sampled

This is okay to use on your lips, but I would not call it a stain. It does not stay for long. I tried to use it on my cheeks and did not see a difference at all. I am extremely fair skinned and I had to put blush and bronzer on after applying the stain to give my face some color.

Love how long this product stays on your lips. Adds the perfect amount of color without having to apply red lipstick.

I normally never wear lipstain, but this was a nice sample size for me to use when I went out one night. I enjoyed it, it had a great color.

I liked this product for the way it was applied and how smooth it blended into the skin but the color was not my color. It was too pink, I need more dark red tones
