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.

Not bad for a lip stain
Sampled

It's a light lip stain and applies nicely. Haven't tried on the cheeks but more than likely won't. Nice color too

Not impressed
Sampled

This is not a very impressive product for me. This was my first time to use a lip stain and I will need to try more to really compare. Wasn't crazy about the color. A little too red for me.

I like the color
Sampled

Love the color. Wish it "stained" more. It seems to wear off quickly. I notice after an hour it is starting to fade.

Awesome color, but drying
Sampled

Great lip color-a blue-based red. Flattering on all skin types and makes teeth look whiter. It is drying though, so definitely use a balm.

not drying

This is a nice stain. It isn't drying at all and can be subtle (one application) or more bold if you choose. I also like to use this as a base for other lip colors or glosses.

Nice light stain
Sampled

I have used stains in the past that packed a big punch in terms of color... so much so, there was no going back if there was a mistake. Not this one. This was a very light stain so I was able to reapply if I wanted more color but I wasn't afraid to use it.
