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.

Love this!
Sampled

The color of the stain really freaked me out at first glance. I thought to myself, "This is supposed to go on my lips AND my CHEEKS??" I laughed and tried it anyway - just to see. I LOVED IT. It goes on bright and rubs in the perfect color for me. On my cheeks it's a really nice subtle rosy color and the same for my lips. I really love it and the convenience of it. Will be purchasing this when my sample runs out.

Hint of Tint!
Sampled

Perfect for work! If you're looking for something with just a hint of lasting tint, this product is perfect! The sample is a good size for a small clutch.

I was not too sure about this when I received the sample, but after trying it I found that I love this product! I had not tried a lip stain before, I think that this will be my go to product for all occasions.

not effective
Sampled

i was really excited about the dual uses of this product but it just wasn't effective. i tried it as a lip stain and it barely changed the color of my lips, plus it was extremely uneven and kind of flaked off. as a cheek stain it was very blotchy and not bled able at all

Didn't Meet My Expectations
Sampled

This product was just ok. I have read about it before and know how much BB raves about it, however, it just didn't measure up. The color was very lights and I didn't like the texture.

Enjoyable

I loved how it is 2 things in one. Saves time and gives you some color in a hurry. As a working mom I am in a hurry most mornings.

Lip Gloss

Like the feel on my lips and color. I have not tried it on my cheeks yet. I will finish the sample and make a decision whether to purchase or not.

Tinty
Sampled

It's a very specific color of tint that doesn't necessarily work with my skin tone. But I'm willing to use it under a lip gloss for just a little something extra.

Nice color
Sampled

Color is very pretty and can be easily layered. I added a clear gloss over it to add some shine.
