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.

Long lasting and feeling fresh!

Loved this gloss. It really is long lasting and putting it on makes my lips feel clean and fresh.

Way too dark
Sampled

The color was all wrong for me and the stain came off on everything. It didn't spread on my lips nice and looked really dry.

There are many great products made by TheBalm, however this lip stain isn't one of them in my opinion. It was hard to get it on my lips evenly. I'm also getting really tired of all lip color samples coming in red of burgundy. Not everyone wants that and some variety would be nice.

Good stuff!

What an awesome lip stain. It's not messy or sticky like other's I've tried. Stays on your lips with the perfect amount of color. Can't wait to try more.

I love this! I received this as a sample in my birchbox. I have used it several times and it has the perfect wash of color! It's not over drying like some other brands I have tried. I will definitely purchase this in the furture.

Lips and cheeks

I liked this product as a blush- it looks super bright but blends in nicely and looks very natural. As a lip color it was too matte and rather dry for me-I prefer a gloss and a moistening feel.

Left a perfect color on my lips

I'm not really big on lip color but this left a perfect hint of color on my lips. I applied over lip balm so it wouldn't be super intense. It turned out perfect :)

Went on smooth, lightly tinted lips as expected. I don't typically go for reds when it comes to lip color, but this color only enhanced my natural lip color, which I liked. Would like to try a different color.

Wish it was not red

This is a good product but the sample was bright red so I could not use it to the extent that I wanted to.

Nice Product

It's a better cheek stain than lip stain because it dries your lips a bit but the color is awesome! Great addition to the gym bag for post workout things!
