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.

I am not a big fan of stain products, but this one was not as drying as I have found others to be in the past. I would have preferred a color that was not as bold, but overall the product did was it claimed.

"Stain"-iac is a suitable name...

I like the color and I thought the gel texture would be nice, but if you don't spread it quickly enough you end up with uneven color on your cheeks & it doesn't look very natural.

Great product.
Sampled

This was a great stain. It lasted throughout the day and was a great color. The texture was a tiny bit goopy, but otherwise it was a great product.

Great

This is the greatest stain I have ever tried! Really holds color on the lips well. Perfect for under chapstic or on it's own!

Loved it

Loved how it gives you just a little bit of color and doesn't rub off.

I liked this sample and the uses per sample ratio wasn't that bad at all. I was hoping for more of a stain from this product though. It gave lips some color, but not that much. The texture of the actual stain was kind of funky because it was more jelly like.

Nice and Light

I like this product. It adds just a little tint which is great pre-lip gloss. I don't wear a lot of makeup and this adds just enough of a color punch to brighten your face. It's very nice!

I like a little more pigment with my color, so I had to layer this bad boy on, but I love it. It works well over another lipstain I own as well.

"Best of Both Worlds"
Sampled

I really like this product because it's understated and somewhat natural looking. It's not bold like lipstick or sticky like lip gloss. It's nice for an everyday look or could be warn at night. I wish they would come out with more colors. I have yet to try it as a cheek stain.
