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.

Light and Bright Lip Stain

I like that this lip and cheek stain is light when I apply it to my lips and is still bright with color. I normally don't use lip stains but this one is nice.

Not for cheeks
Sampled

I have only tried this on my cheeks and was not impressed by how it rubbed in. Maybe I didn't use enough? Maybe I waited too long or not long enough? I'm not sure but it was ineffective in creating a great color. It looks pretty red so I haven't tried it on my lips.

I am not a fan of lip or cheek stain.
Sampled

I tried the Balm cosmetics Stainiac lip and cheek stain in Beauty Queen magenta-toned pink, despite not being a fan of any type of make up stain. My opinion has not changed after trying this product. I just do not like make up stains. They are too thin and it's hard to fix it if it gets smeared onto surrounding skin. Thank you.

Not For Me
Sampled

This was my very first The Balm product, and sadly I am disappointed in it. I loved the packaging, the product however reminded me of red syrup. This stain did not show up at all on my lips, so it really isn't for me.

good lip stain
Sampled

I like that this lip stain is buildable. The downside to it is that the texture/consistency is like a very watery gel. So when you apply it, it kinda just sits there for sometime. You have to let it dry before applying it again to build the color.

Great Hydrating Color but Not Long Lasting
Sampled

Love the color, hydrates well. I wish it stained a bit more & lasted longer. I think in order to be hydrating you trade off the long wearing quality.

Not my thing
Sampled

This product is pretty effective, not as much staining power as I would like, but it's fine. The thing I can't get over is the texture, it's wayyyy too sticky, it feels gross on my lips. So in conclusion, not my thing.
