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 like the idea of a quick stain for my lips but this stuff is dry. It made my lips feel really dry-no thanks.

Gives the the right amount of color, looks natural. It is light as a feather not sticky. I have already purchased a full size.

Does nothing for me

I tried it as a lipstick and it did nothing for my lips. It does dry out the lips. I don't like putting liquid on my cheeks so I haven't used it as a blush but I was really disappointed that it did nothing for my lips. You couldn't even tell I had anything on. Maybe it just matched my lip color but there was no difference at all. Not even a subtle difference.

Went on very smoothly! I thought the color was going to be too red but it was at all. Looked really good on. Would like to get some in different colors also!

This product did not last very long and dried my lips out. Love the idea, but didn't work like expected

I was disappointed with this product. The shade was pretty much the color my lips already are so I had to put on a lot of layers to get any color to show. It also started fading after like an hour of me wearing it, so it does not last for long. The texture was not bad but after I applied it it gave my lips a weird tingly feeling, not sure what thats about. Anyways, if you have pale lips and love reapplying lip stain than this product is for you.

I absolutely love this product, I normally don't wear blush but I do now. I love that the lip color is subtle but lasts a long time. Definitely going to buy this!

Great subtle color, just wish it didn't fade so fast. To avoid drying, I've been applying this first then an uncolored lip balm over top. Won't be purchasing, but will keep using the sample I've got!

I liked the color, however, did tend to dry out my lips.

This is the first lip stain I had found that actually works and you don't even need that much of it. The sample size is great since I really only use it for special occasions- it looks cheap but don't be fooled! I hardly put any on because I just wanted a little color and it lasted for over 12 hours of going out and having drinks. It was awesome!
