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.

I live for any kind of stain, this is so good. I don't like the taste too much, it's acutally pretty surprising that there is a taste. I usually forget I'm wearing it, then i lick my lips and get the gross taste of it. Other wise, it's great for a casual look. I wear it to work all the time!

Nice color and texture

This lip gloss isn't sticky like some lip glosses and the color is very subtle (which I was skeptical about because it looks like it would be very bright). Overall, I like this.

I'm not a fan of lip stains. Personal preference. I want something with more color and the product seemed drying to me.

I like the naturalness!!

I like how simple the stainiac is. It glides on the lips so easily and looks great on my lips. I also like how natural it is. The only thing I don't like is that it didn't last very long maybe about a half hour at the most, causing me to have to reapply often.

Lip gloss

Was a great product but was not for me. I don't usually wear lip gloss but it was interesting to use and was definitely a great product. The sample size was the right size.

Nice - shade is not for me

I liked the application and consistency of the Stainiac gloss, and it felt good on after it "dried." The color is very sheer, but brighter than I like to wear. It is good on my skin tone as a cheek stain, though.

This product produced very little color. I love The Balm but was disappointed when I used this specific product. I would not purchase this product despite having purchased other Balm products in the past. I love the brand, but I'll skip Stainiac.
