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.

Love this!
Sampled

I love this product! I have only used it on my lips but I love the color! It's the perfect amount of color for a soft beautiful lip! I add some gloss on top to give to some shine but the matte look is great too!

Versatile Stain
Sampled

I love this stain because one layer is appropriate for work, another makes it a bright berry fun for any day. It lasts a while and goes on smoothly, too. Even when my lips are dry it doesn't accentuate the dry spots like some others do.

Great Formula
Sampled

I really like the gel constitancy and the number of uses for this product. However I would prefer it to be more color saturated.

Lip Stain

Have yet to try this on my cheeks.. seems a little too sticky to do so. But as a person who has yet to switch from chap stick to lip stick, I love being able to have a little color on my lips!

wish i could find the other colors

A little bit sticky, but wore well. Red was a great color, would look good on anyone, but would like to see the other colors in the line as well.

Good blush alternative
Sampled

Although the sample was not full I was able to get 3 uses from it. I found it to give just a hint of color that I wanted without drying out my skin.

Nice Lip Stain
Sampled

I haven't tried this product as a blush but I have used it as a lip stain. I have received this sample before and still own it. I don't always use it, I don't really like how I end up with an outline darker than the rest of the lips and they get dry as well. Over all its nice when you just want to add some color or withe several coats a deeper shade.

Uneven Color
Sampled

I liked this product on my cheeks, but on my lips the color was uneven and wore off quickly. Not something I would purchase or use.

stain...not glossy
Sampled

I have a lip stain that also acts as a gloss when you first apply. This didn't have that quality. I liked the concept of a lip and cheek stain but I didn't love it on my lips because I like a bit more gloss. works well on cheeks if you don't use any powder.
