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 as lasting as one would expect

For a lip stain I expected this product to keep my lips stained all day. However that was not the case (only lasted for several hours). Not a fan of the stickiness either :/

Strongly Okay

I am a pretty hard core lipstick girl, but I was very open to the idea of trying a lip stain. The color wasn't quite the best for me, and it didn't really "stain". I was apple to build it up by applying, drying and then reapplying, but pas three coats things got a bit dodgy. It's not the product for me, but I still think it is worth a try it you like something a bit more subtle.

Doesn't Stain
Sampled

I love the color of this when you first put it on. BUT, the product just doesn't last on the lips. If it's supposed to be a stain then STAIN. I haven't tried this on the cheeks because I'm more of a powder person, but it might work better than on the lips.

Fantastic find
Sampled

I don't like lip products aside from chapstick and never wear it so when I got this in my box I was less than thrilled but nevertheless I tried it and I absolutely love it. It dries super fast so I can put my chapstick right overtop of it and it doesn't smear or get on anything. I also dab it on my cheeks to get that rosy glow.

Lip stain

The stain was a pretty color but the texture was off for me. It felt like my lips were super dry. don't think I would buy it but the color was pretty

better than expected

I liked this more than I thought I would. It goes on a brighter pink that I'm used to, but after a couple uses, I got used to it and actually started to like the color.

Subtle lip stain
Sampled

I liked that this was subtle. it initially felt like a gloss but wore into a nice stain. I just don't like lip color on myself that much.
