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.

The stain works great on the lips, it doesn't make them two dark and lasts a while

Used up!

I got this in my birchbox a few months ago and honest have used it up! I got the "Beauty Queen" stain which has a great blue undertone that compliments my skin and making my teeth look whiter.

Not much cup of tea

This my be great for the person on the go or someone who needs to condense the amount of make-up for a plane trip. I was just not impressed with it, I would have used it for a lip gloss but it is a bit pricey for that. The product dried to quick and uneven for me to get it even on my cheeks.

Good color

This lip stain is comparable to benefit's benefit, but slightly more moisturizing. The color was also a little more natural.

pretty neat lip color
Sampled

I have never used a lip stain before and was a little apprehensive before trying. However, I was pleasantly surprised about how nice it looked. It wasn't heavy or dark like i imagined. In fact, it took many coats to really see the color and didn't last long. The sample size is just right for your purse!

Not long-lasting...
Sampled

I can't attest to how it works as a cheek stain. But, it wasn't very effective as a lip stain. It seems more like a very faded wash of color, and needed many layers to accomplish a good color. The stain also didn't last very long -- not even an hour! Overall, I found it very disappointing.

Nice color but. I thought the sample was too small. A little drying but, would like to give it another try.

I like this as a lip stain, but I don't really like the texture of it for blush or cheek stain.
