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 on Lips- Not so much on Cheeks
Sampled

I was excited to receive this item. I have never had a Lip and Cheek stain before. It is nice and light on the lips and the color stays on. I tried it on my cheeks but the color does not seem to translate to my face. I thought I was doing something wrong until I read all the other reviews that basically said the same thing. Nice for Lips-- Not so much for the face.

Not my favorite.

This product did not work for me. It went on very uneven.
Maybe it's made for a younger customer. I would suggest it for a young person.

I LOVE THIS!

I've never been big on lip-stains for lip wear, usually because they either have too many steps involved to achieve the perfect look, or because they end up being sticky/not lasting long.
But Stainiac is great! It goes on smoothly, you can do multiple coats to get a more vibrant color each time, it's not sticky but it also doesn't try out right away, and it lasts! It's everything I would want in a lip-stain, so I intend on purchasing this again in the future.

This product is weird. Who wants to put something on their lips that they just put on their face? Or vice versa? So anyway I only tried in on my lips and didn't like it. There is no moisture to it, weird consistency.

Nice!!!

Even though the sample is not anywhere near my color, I am interested in checking out possible other colors because this stays on so nice!!!! My lips did not feel dry afterwards and as the day went on the color stayed on, but not drying. I hope they have some browns or neutral colors that I can buy.

Subtle pop of color suitable for day or night
Sampled

I was extremely pleased with this product. First, I adore the color--it leans toward fuschia or magenta, but it is on the sheer side so the color is not overpowering. Second, I like the consistency--it feels cool and refreshing when I put it on, and definitely not thick or sticky. Third, it smells great. I can even apply the product on my lips and then put chapstick on top so that my lips remain moisturized. My only complaint is that I wish the product lasted longer on my lips--I had to reapply it once or twice throughout the night. It is a great lip stain though!

Decent lip stain
Sampled

The Staniac lip stain is a pretty enough color but I didn't feel that it really stayed on for very long. Perhaps I did not apply enough. But I would not buy this product again. It was fairly thin and did not last as long as one would expect a stain to last. Only about as long as a lip gloss

Not for me

This stain was a horrible color for me and went on too sheer. The stain also was not easily blended on my cheeks. I will not be purchasing this product.
