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 for me

I had high hopes, but was not impressed. The stain was not much of a stain and fairly uneven, patchy looking. The texture felt sticky and unnatural to me. I tend to need lip stuff that is really moisturizing and this felt like the illusion of moisture and not the real thing at all.

Stain ehh
Sampled

I like the balm a lot but this stain just was a little uneven for application and dries which I personally love but it dried down with a weird uneven stain and wore off in the middle the most. But for teens and pretend this is a great product.

The Stainiac has left me a little dissatisfied.
Complaints -
• The texture of the product was sticky.
• It left a numbing affect on my lips (no other products were applied onto my lips at the time)
• The stain wasn't really a stain, it was a low quality tint.
Acknowledgements -
• Yes it did leave a pretty light, light tint.
• Size is perfect for travel.
• Soft application brush.

I didn't think this stain made a big difference or lasted that long on my lips. Did give slight coloring.

I loveddddd this mystery liquid. First of all it stays on with little to no up keep. It doesn't bleed into anyone you kiss, on anything you drink; you might even get away with telling your friends you don't have any lip product on. It can go from natural day wear to a cute night lip with no hassle of whether or not you're wearing the right shade for whatever you are doing or whatever eyes and face makeup you decide to wear. Daily must have in my purse. Love it.

Love Staniac!
Sampled

I already own a tube of Staniac. I really like this product--just a touch of red that sets nicely and is easy to apply. It can dry, so I always keep a balm handy, but I always do anyway!

Awesome Lip Stain
Sampled

This is the most forgiving, easy to use lip stain I have ever had. I wear it on my "no make-up days" for a little subtle color and it works great. I've compliments on my lips (not my lipstick) with this stuff!
