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, natural color. Unfortunately, it wore off pretty quickly. It also dried out my lips. Maybe applied some lip balm before would help?

The shade was all wrong for my complexion. I did not like how it felt on my lips. I'll pass!!!!

Great product
Sampled

Really worked for my skin tone. It does go on a little less even with the applicator but I got the hang of it. Doesn't seem fake looking.

Pretty, but streaky and fades
Sampled

Definitely need to use a mirror when applying, even as a lip stain. The color doesn't apply evenly, so you could end up with streaks. It also fades within about 30 mins.

Weird Feeling
Sampled

When I first put this on, it sort of felt like water on my lips. I thought the color was okay, but nothing super impressive

I dont prefer stains

The color was a little too bright for my taste. And it really confused me how it could be used for your face and for your lips.
