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 was really excited to get this product however, I found it to be really disappointing. It has a great color on my lips, but only if I put on about 20 coats. That seems a little excessive to me. It also does not last very long once it is on which is really disappointing.

Good Product but there is better
Sampled

This lip balm is great but after using mine for 1 year every day, I feel like this is not the best. It has a good consistency but I do not like the color it reflects on my lips. It would look good on someone that had lighter skin.

Nice surprise
Sampled

I really like this for a lip stain! I am not a fan of heavy lipsticks or glosses, so this is perfect. The texture takes a little getting used to, but it dries very quickly, and it leaves a great tint.

don't like the consistency
Sampled

I don't like the consistency of this product. It seemed gooey and sticky. After application, I wanted to wipe if off after a few minutes on my lips. I couldn't imagine how it would work and the mess it would make on cheeks. Not for me at all.

Stain In Love
Sampled

I am in love with this stain. It suits my skin tone so well and lasts nicely. There is everything good to say about this one here. I exfoliate my lips before using it and it goes on flawlessly.

Odd texture
Sampled

I like the tint but the consistency is very odd. Goes on very uneven. I like Benefit lip stains better.

Love this Lip Stain
Sampled

I use this almost everyday at work and I love it. I don't usually wear lipstick but this adds just enough color without affecting your lips.

Versatile

Love the fact that this product can be used on lips or cheeks. Easily layers to deepen the color and doesn't leave a ton of buildup.

Ok

This products consistency seemed a little off when I received it. When I put it on there is barely any color and doesn't go on smooth. Personally it's one of the least favorite products I've received.

Perfect cheek & lip color
SampledPurchased

Love this stain. Long lasting, subtle, elegant color. Did I say lasting? Simple to apply to cheeks. Gives a soft rosy glow that will last through a work out or all night . A little sticky on the lips initially, but great under a clear gloss. I like the natural sophisticated tint. Very classy.
