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 like how this looks good on lips and cheek. And it's subtler than it looks from the packaging. It actually isn't very bright. Just a nice Rosey color.

Pretty Color.
Sampled

I like the gel formula of this stain and the color is pretty. It just doesn't last very long though and the coverage is kind of patchy.

Nice tint

I love this to add color to my plain cheeks. .Didn't do as well on my lips bc of the dryness it left them.

Liked it

This stain lasted all day and made my lips soft, however, it was very see through when applied to lips. It did not provide the coverage that i was expecting. But overall i liked it.

Good for non-lipstick wearers.
Sampled

I'm admittedly a terrible lipstick wearer because I bite and lick my lips too much for it to stay put and I just end up looking like I'm wearing lip liner after a few hours. This is nice because it stains the lips so it stays put and wears a little more evenly and naturally. I would buy it again!

Great color, thin consistency
Sampled

The color is perfect for my complexion - on both my lips and cheeks. When I apply this product to my lips, the consistency is thin and slippery and I have to pay attention to an even application; it dries immediately and lasts for hours, even while eating and drinking. I would compare it to a watered down lip stain - definitely not as thick as most stains. The color applied to the cheeks is great. Just a little circle on the apples of the cheeks and viola!
