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
Sampled

I have medium skin tone and the consistency and color did not work for me. Left my lips feeling dry and sticky

just what i was looking for
Sampled

I have been searching for a lightweight stain with a red tint that doesnt dry my lips out, lasts long and doesnt bleed onto my skin. This is perfect, I wear it all day and it can be enhanced with lipstick for evening. Love it!

I liked this product because it lasted for awhile & wasn't too intense (color-wise) for me!

Nice lip stain
Sampled

I really liked this product. The color in the tube is a bit intimidating, it's a deep red/burgundy color. But as soon as I put it on, it's a nice, sheer, pinky color. I liked that I can build up the color to a sheer or deeper shade as I would like to have. And don't be fooled by the sample size, it goes a long way.

Lip and cheek
Sampled

It's a perfectly good lip stain, I like lip liner though and sometime a lip stain doesn't blend well with the liner.

interesting product but not for me
Sampled

The product had a generous amount for it being a sample size. It is made in good quality. however I dont think its a product for someone like me since I'm not that experienced at working with stains in a gel type formulation.

Great for blush not for lips
Sampled

I think if this was just a cheek stain I would have loved it. But it did nothing for my lips and felt weird.

Great stain!
Sampled

Works great as a "stain" but I have never been able to achieve the look I want with a lip stain. Good quality but I will not be purchasing.

Just a regular stain

This felt like any other liquid stain I've tried. Nothing special to me. Color was cute but I prefer other stains.
