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.

Love it!

I am a stain gal through and through. I love long wear and no reapplication. This product packs a great color punch but is not as in your face as some stains can be. I really felt like this product was a great color and was a good value, and I will most likely buy the full size. However, the color does tend to fade and wear off after a while, so beware of that.

Nice Product!
Sampled

The product was great - nice texture and great color. I just prefer traditional blush over stain. Would be great for those who prefer stains!

Cute and quick way to add some color to your lips! Made my lips a bit dry, so I had to put on chapstick afterwards, but I liked how the color stayed on for a while.

Good but not for me
Sampled

I really liked this stain. It went on nicely with a thin consistency not thick at all and it did stay put without smearing o to my face. Plus the color was really nice! With that being said I have chronic dry chapped lips and I found that it looked great at first application but as my lips dried it started to separate and made the chapped lips look worse where it settled into the cracks. So it's a great product but just not for me.

I love this lip stain. It doesn't dry out my lips and the color is not overwhelming.

I thought this was a great product but unfortunately I am more of a sheer lipgloss and chapstick kind of girl.

Weird, but good weird
Sampled

This is a weird mix between a lip stain and a lip gloss. However, the gloss part seems to evaporate away quickly after application. So to the people who complained about the sliminess of the product, yes it is a bit slimy, but it goes away! The stain is fairly long lasting and adds a nice shade to lips. I like this product and will probably purchase in the future!
