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 just wasn't for me. I hated how it glided on and I hated the color.

Great, subtle color
Sampled

I tend to keep my lips natural at work and wear lipstick when I go out on the weekends. I've never really done a lip stain before but I was fond of it. I liked that it was something for everyday use without going overboard. The only downfall is that I wish it was longer lasting. I have a hard time with lip product staying on as I'm drinking water all day or doing something for it to fade off- It goes on very smooth though!

It's coolio but not thaaaat coolio

I liked this product 'ight. When I put it on I was extremely pleased with the color, I only tried it as a cheek stain but I would imagine it's nice as a lip gloss as well. The packaging is very cute/ I would feel chic pulling a full size one out of my purse. However, the reason I can't see myself ordering in the future is how long it lasted. Now, I could be mistaken since I did go out in the cold after applying and my face gets a very weird mixture of extremely pale but also kind of red due to the wind- but when I came inside it looked like I had never put it on. That was after about an hour and a half. I though the appeal of stains was that they were supposed to last longer...? Anyway, I enjoyed getting this sample, it was fun to use but I'm probably not going to miss it too much when it's all gone.

not a fan

I did not like the way it felt after applying to my lips. It felt really sticky and I didn't find it very effective.

Not the best
Sampled

For a stain, this doesn't do anything. It's a cute little tube, and the consistency of the product is nice, but it doesn't actually stain. I have very light skin and most stains work wonders on me. This one didn't do anything, even when just applied.

Love this stuff. Doesn't feel heavy on your lips but moisturizing. Must try.

Not my usual balm

I wouldn't usually use this type of balm but I was happy with the results overall. Worked well and lasts a good amount of time by that I mean approx. 4-5 hrs before a reapply is necessary.

it worked well for my cheeks, a little goes a long way with this stuff. Nice alternative to powder blush because it looks more authentic

I really liked this lip stain. It was not too hard to get off but it staid, had no smell, and not sticky at all like lip gloss.
