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.

Hard to blend
Sampled

Prom Queen is a really pretty rosy color, which I love. But I find it hard to blend if it's going to be used as a blush. But it gives a great tint to the lips!

Tried once, gave it away.
Sampled

Tried this product once, gave it to my mother. I am not a fan of lip or cheek stains. Not a Miss Yvonne type. This same is quite small and is not a product I am comfortable using/needing.

Not the best lip stain
Sampled

Definitely not the best lip stain I've ever used. The tint just didn't seem to show up and it was too light

Great application
Sampled

This product applies on your face great! I had other cheek tints that are not as great and drip all over your face before you can evenly blend it in so this was way better than others I've tried.

Stain doesn't stain

The stain only lasted for about 10 minutes when I used it; afterwards, it faded quite quickly.

nice
Sampled

I love The Balm, but this is not my favotite product by them. The consistancy is nice and it is not overly drying but the staying power is a little lacking.

A nice stain
Sampled

I really enjoyed this lip stain. It's a really nice color for my skin tone. I'm normally extremely picky about lip color. It's a very natural look, which I love! My only complaint is that without a Chapstick, it will leave your lips a little dry.

Nice!

This is really nice especially because of the color. The color is noticeable but not to bright which is good.
