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.

Good, easy to use product
Sampled

This product is great if you're looking for something easy to use and also with multi-purposes. It left a nice, natural stain on my lips and also on my cheeks. Consistency is a little whipped but also gel-like.

I can't get enough of this product
Sampled

I love lipsticks and lip colors. But honestly, I hate wearing it to work during the week. I hate wasting good time in the morning to apply makeup when I'm just going to be answering phones and emails all day. This is great for days at work. It gives a light color, takes seconds to apply, and lasts all day. I'm sold.

Love this Stain

I love red lips, especially when you are going for the night. This lip stick stays on pretty well; long lasting.

Good Stain

Great product if you like a stain, wipes off easily from corners or if you make a mistake! I'm not a big red lip fan but if you are this product would do the trick.

Love

I have thin lips and am always looking for a great natural and subtle color and this hits the mark. I love that I can build the color to how light or dark I want it. Another great thing is that its not drying like many stains can be.

Good Product

Gives you that dab of color you need on your cheeks
during the winter.
Don't use too much. It will last.

Liked but not for me
Sampled

I liked the stain but did not like the color that was chosen for me and did not like the feel of the gloss. I do not like gloss feeling products though.

Not sold on this two in one
Sampled

I used this on both my lips and cheeks. It dried out my lips and had to be REALLY applied because it seemed so thin! I really liked it more as a blush. I didn't like that when I put some on my finger to add some color to my cheeks that it stained my finger red and had to be washed a few times to come off completely. Not a fan.

nice lip stain
Sampled

If i wore lip stain, I would purchase this. It stayed on throughout eating and drinking and wasn't sticky. It barely felt like I had anything on. Might have to try mixing it with some lip balm and it would be more up my alley.
