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.

This product is so fun! It can be used as a lip stain or blush. I have used it for both and it is a great color. My favorite way to wear it is as a blush. It gives a great rosey natural color on your cheeks.

This sample saved my bum! I was able to use my sample to give me a polished look just in time for a business meeting. It did not add too much color and was very easy to apply. I am adding this to my must have list

I love this product. I watched a how to use video on YouTube and it showed how to get the perfect consistency of lip and cheek glow. I would def recommend!

This is the lip product I have been searching for! It's lightweight, long lasting, and very pretty. This is a great product for someone who (like me) is transitioning into wearing lip color for the first time. It is a nice natural color, and not too heavy on the lips.

I enjoyed this product. It's a great color however I am afraid to actually use it as a blush on my cheeks. Have only tried it on lips

I love this lip stain and have never tried one before. However....I have tons of lipsticks and lip glosses lying around so I didn't really need more but it is a nice change of pace from the others. I like that it's just a stain and not a gloss, sometimes I even wear it under others for lasting results.

I don't like cheek or lip tints. Actually I don't like cheek tints and it didn't do much for my lips so I was not a fan.

It went on kind of sticky. I was expecting it to be a little darker as well. It went on pretty pink and didn't last too long. I doubt I'll be purchasing this ever.

More like a lip gloss rather than a stain....

I have gotten this product twice in my Birchboxes and I'm not a huge fan of the texture. The product is more like a lipgloss rather than a stain.
