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 stain

Such a great color! I've never used a stain before and I liked how this left color but I wasn't worried about it rubbing off. Would definitely use again.

Not my cup of tea

I've never used a product like this before so I tried it on my lips first. I wasn't crazy about it. I like products with more color, and I'm assuming there wasn't more color because you could use it on your cheeks.

Cute but not very visible

This was not the right color to use on my cheeks (I'm very fair), but not dark enough to make much of an impact as a lip stain.

I am loving this stain lipstick by Stainiac. It leaves a very natural hint of color and lasts for a long time. So far I have only used it for color on my lips. I have the lovely rose pink which is a great color.

Eh

Didn't love this. Hard to spread evenly on cheeks and made my lips weirdly slick/tacky. The color is fine, but the texture and quality is definitely not comparable to other stains I've tried.

Meh

I think it was a good idea for a product but over all I wasn't impressed. It took a while to dry and tasted awful when still wet. The color looked nice for a while after it finally dried. Also, since it takes a while to dry it spread past my lips too.

Loved it!

I'm not a fan of cheek stains or liquid blush, but as a lip stain this was fantastic! It gave me a beautiful color that looked so natural only I knew I had lip stain on. It does feel a bit unnatural, but you get used to the feeling after a little wear. Also, totally passed the kiss test!

The color didn't look great with my super fair skin and it really dried my lips out!

I loved this lip gloss. It provided a red stain look on your lips that I really like. The consistency of the gloss is not sticky, like many other lip glosses can be. Love it!
