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.

Yet Another Cheek/Lip Stain
Sampled

Full disclosure, but I do not like cheek/lip stains in general. It seems like they do both of those tasks okay, rather than great. I would rather have two products that do a great job rather than one multitasking product that is just okay.

That is what I experienced with this. A light, short lasting lip stain and cheek stain that is awkward to apply and not overly stellar.

The product isn't bad, it just doesn't wow me. Not to mention that there is massive competition right now and it feel like every month I get another cheek/lip stain and none of them really seem to hit the mark for me.

It was a really fun color. Bright but not obnoxious. Lasted for hours. Nice smooth texture not oily or thick. I really enjoyed it. The size was very generous.

Good product

Good product, took a little long to set for my taste. Overall pretty good but not for me. I'm more of a liquid lipstick not lip stain person.

Sticky/ no color
Sampled

Didn't care for the sticky feeling on my cheeks. It didn't show up very well on my cheeks or lips

Not my style

It was an interesting product- but it's just not one I'd probably use again. Not really my color or texture for lip color.

Liked this ...

I really liked this lip stain. I thought it was tinted just enough and it didn't feel weird. I could casually wear it or dress my make up routine up a bit too. I accidentally washed it in the washing machine which was a huge bummer. :(

Love it!

Never had tried a lip stain before! This was an excellent one to start with! I have tan brown skin and the stain looked great! I also loved that you could apply it to the cheeks as well! Gave cheeks a nice Rosie glow!

I have never used a product like this. It was fun to use and easy to apply. I am not sure if I will continue to use it though.
