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

My favorite selection of the month. Gives a really natural, and pretty color. I love its versatility, as you can use it on your cheeks and lips. I did find I needed to use it over chapstick, as it dried out my lips a bit.

Interesting product
Sampled

I am not much of a lip stain person, I much prefer balms and creams. I wore this on my lips several days and while I like the concept, I don't think it's for me. I found the color looked unnatural on me and I didn't care for the feel of it on my lips.

Cherry red
Sampled

This stuff is great, I really think it works with all skin tones too. My friends and I all tied it and liked the way it looked on us even though we all have different tones. The color is like a nice cherry red and although it's a glossy tube it dries to be sort of matte. My friend also used a little on her cheeks as cheek tint and it worked out nicely

Does what it says

Great duo! A bit too red for my cheeks as I have fair skin and tend to lean more to pink blushes. Looked great on my lips, subtle and non-drying.

just gross

The consistency is like Jell-O, gross! The color was not consistent when applied. I would not put this on my lips or cheeks again.

love lip stain, amazing color
Sampled

I love the color is natural deep color but very natural in your lips and in your cheeks. Look like if you weren't use anything but at the same time very nice color. Amazing is long lasting color

very dissatisfied
Sampled

I was really excited when I saw this product in my box because I have been wanting to try a lip/cheek stain. The color in the packaging looked like it was going to be bold and dark, it was anything but. It felt like I was putting aloe vera on my lips. I could hardly tell I was even wearing any lip color.
I definitely do not recommend this product for anyine wanting a bold color.

Very sheer, must blend immediately
Sampled

This didn't give me as much color as I wanted. Also, I applied s few streaks to each cheek. By the time I finished blending the first cheek and moved to the second, my cheek was literally stained with the streaks I applied.. So blend quickly!

Nice For A Stain
Sampled

I'm not a fan of stains in general, but this was a nice color. I put it on under my lipstick, and felt like it gave my red lip a bit of a boost. Would suggest putting this on AFTER your liner.

I just don't like lip stain. Nothing against this one in particular although my bottle wasn't full when I first tried it... It was okay
