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 wasn't a fan of the shade, but the product itself is good quality and blends well. It's not streaky or splotchy. The smell is not too terribly appealing though.

Stains only the edges of your lips
Sampled

I love the balm usually but this lip stain was pretty disappointing to me. It didn't really apply color to the center of my lips and lingered around the edges and wore off in the center with what little product stayed. It kinda tastes bitter too. I've had better lip stains. And it doesn't even show up on my cheeks.

I love this stain because it only takes a little bit to add a hint of color.

I love the idea of lip stains but this one was not for me. It didn't stain consistently and I had a tough time evening it out.

Good sample

I was a little Leary of trying a product that went on both my lips and my cheeks, but I really liked this. It was easy to apply and blended well on my cheeks. It also added just enough color to my lips. I was pleased with this sample.

Staniac FTW!!

I love the balm cosmetics and pretty much everything they do. I'm a HUUUGE fan of this stain because it like things quick and easy, especially my everyday look. This works well on lips although it does catch if you have rough spots or cracks. I like it better as a cheek stain. It lasts for EVER. Definitely lives up to the hype.

Not the best.
Sampled

I don't know why but this product just doesn't work for me. I found the consistency to be really off, and it really does not provide much color or last long.
