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.

I liked this more than I thought I would. It goes on a brighter pink that I'm used to, but after a couple uses, I got used to it and actually started to like the color.

Subtle lip stain
Sampled

I liked that this was subtle. it initially felt like a gloss but wore into a nice stain. I just don't like lip color on myself that much.

Pretty at first
Sampled

This product went on very pretty at first. It was a nice texture and a gorgeous color. However, not much longer after I put it on, the color remained around the outer edges of my lips but was completely gone on the inside. I've had other products last much longer than this one. I was disappointed since it was such a pretty color.

Surprised

When I first looked at the color I received - I thought "that is never going to look good on me" - but the stain matched my inner lip as it was suppose to.Looked natural and stayed on for a long time - I will buy this

The perfect lip stain
Sampled

I really like this stain. I thought when I opened it that the consistency was too runny. However, when I tried it, I changed my mind. It is so light -- so it allows you to play with how much stain you want to put on. It also has a nice floral scent. It stays on for hours and works really well with a plain gloss on top. Highly recommended.

Love this!

I've been looking for a lip stain that was light enough that I didn't feel like I had anything on and this is it! The stain lasts a good amount of time for how light it is.

It grew on me
Sampled

The first time I tried this product I was not impressed. However, after repeated use it grew on me. It provided a hint of color to my lips and cheeks. Now I've been using it frequently as opposed to sticky gloss.

Good for some color
Sampled

Great for a splash of color , it will eventually wear off but gives you longer lasting color vs lipstick

Good Product, Have to Reapply Often
Sampled

I really liked the Beauty Queen shade of this sample that I received. It added the perfect pop of color to my lips. I don't recommend using this product on your cheeks. It is a much better lip stain than it is a blush. I found it hard to blend on my face. Overall, happy with this product as a lip stain.
