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 thought this would be identical to other liquid stains, but I really like how this is a gel. The gel consistency makes it fool proof so you don't end up with patches of stain. It looks like a natural flush. My only problem is that it doesn't last long.

Strange lips
Sampled

The texture, smell and taste of this product is quite strange to me. The color didn't really take on my lips so the stain was not really relevant. I expected it to be similar to other stains that I have used before but the texture was almost like hair gel.

I was surprised!
Sampled

I was surprised how subtle the stain was! It makes it easy to blend into cheeks and the lip stain dried very quickly!

Nice
Sampled

This have me a nice tint. I only use this one my lips. The shade give me a nice light-medium tint that stays at least 1/4 of the day before I need to reapply (a record for me). Pleased & am tempted to buy!

Love lip and cheek stains but this one just didn't do anything for me. It's probably nice for someone with more fair skin who wants a soft glow but it just disappeared on my lips and face.

Great Lip Stain
Sampled

I love the idea of lip stains, but most of the ones I've tried tend to really dry out my lips. I really like this color, it's subtle enough for my lighter skin, but still gives me a nice pop of color.
