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.

Lackluster lip and cheek stain
Sampled

I wanted to love this 2-in-1 lip and cheek stain, but I found it to be sadly ineffective. Bummer!

A litle too pink
Sampled

This stain felt good and was generally comparable to to other lipstains, however the shade on me was a little too pink. It's light enough I might wear it sometimes, but not a go to shade for me.

Color is wonderful
Sampled

I love loooove lip/ cheek stains. If I am going out for a quick run to the store or to the mall I throw a stain on. Now that I got to try this product, I will be purchasing this. Its wonderful. Its not too sticky like some other brands. It does stay on for a long time. Pretty much I love everything about this product. Its wonderful. I all ready told all my friends about it that use tints too!

Very lite
Sampled

This goes one like water, the color takes a while to show. At first I didn't think it worked. Color is nice, especially if you put a gloss on over it.

Stained lips
Sampled

It was very drying on my lips. I did enjoy the color but had to apply a moisturizer on top.

Nice Lip Stain
Sampled

This stain goes on light and can get darker with more applications. It stays for a good amount if time and is a really nice color without being too overpowering.

Not the best
Sampled

I've tried multiple stains, and I wouldn't say this is the best one. I love stains because they typically last long but I found that the color did not last very long on my lips. The color is great and I love it but I just wish it lasted longer!

This stuff is sheer, but was a terrible color. I would much rather use benefits bene-tint.

Not long lasting, dries out lips
Sampled

The stain color is nice, however it does not last nearly long enough to be considered a "stain" and it dries my lips out like crazy, leaving them a little pink but dry.

Basic lip stain
Sampled

Does a nice job of providing long lasting color. Not sticky and I like that I can wear it under lip balm.
