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.

even when the lipstick layer wears off, you are left with a natural pink sheen. Great for long nights!

I love this lip tint. The red color is just perfect, very sheer, so it is just a hint of color. Glides on wonderfully & is very smooth. Fantastic!

This was a decent lip stain. Pretty subtle which was more my style.

I absolutely loved this product. A two-in-one product is great for on the go. I've already used my whole sample and I'm ready to buy the full size product!

This is an interesting product. I've tried something similar but didn't like it. I still don't prefer it but it wasn't as over powering as I expected.

Strange
Sampled

This product is like jelly, but not sticky, very weird. I saw the color and immediately thought it would be too dark, but it actually just gives your lips a nice tint of that color. It absorbs extremely quickly, and you feel like you didn't put any lip product on at all. I like to feel like I'm getting some moisture when I put something on my lips so I probably wouldn't purchase this, but if I just need some color it would be good!

Love Stains.... but....
Sampled

Color was great, packaging is nice, but it didn't seem to stay. Very translucent and thin. Would have to re apply way to much to be a stain for me.

I have always been a fan of the Benetint Stain- I love the idea of a multi use stain, and am the type of person who would regularly use one. The color was great on my fair olive skin tone, it lasted as long as I'd want it to, and the application texture was great! One of the best parts was that it didn't crease on me. The only improvement I could suggest would be the flavor/ scent. I love that Benetint is rose scented.

I loved the way this felt on my lips, I just wish it was a color for me. Way too pink, but worked perfectly for my co worker.

For a stain, it doesn't last long.
Sampled

I'm a big fan of lip stains because I hate dealing with transfer from other lip products. The texture of this threw me off, because I was expecting something more like Benefit's "beneTint" - but that's more of a me-issue. What really disappointed me was that the stain just didn't last that long at all - not compared to other stains I've tried.
