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 had always heard of liquid blush but never tried it. I can definitely say I loved it! It was simple and a lot quicker to apply than my powder blush! I also loved the fact that I do not need to use a brush to apply and can use my clean hands. I am sure I will see the difference in my complexion from not having to use a brush.

Nice Shade but didn't stay
Sampled

I love the shade of this product, but it just didn't stay on for very long at all. I only used it on my lips.

Surprised
Sampled

I'm not big on lip color, so I wasn't excited to get this. But I gave it a chance and I actually really liked it! It stays on great and is a nice subtle color. My only complaint is that I wish it was a little more red or nude instead of pink. Great buy for anyone who hates reapplying lip color a hundred times a day like me!

Fav Lip Stain
SampledPurchased

This is by far my favorite lip stain. So different than other lip stains in the past. Never tacky or drying.

the stain lasts very long time
Sampled

This is my second lip stain i have tried from Birchbox. This one is a liquid stain and it felt a bit odd when you first put it on but it does amazing job for lasting it for a long time. I haven't tried it on my cheek, i would think it might feel a bit odd..

Not great quality
Sampled

The product works pretty well as a cheek tint, but goes on the lips like a bad lip stain. Will not be purchasing.

I LOVE THIS I always consider myself a minimalist when it comes to my daily make up routine. However now my go to gloss is this! I love how long it lasts and it also can double as a blush!

Long stay power, but sticky at first
Sampled

I really like the color and the staying power of this, the only complaint that I have is that it makes my lips feel sticky for a while.

Lips felt dry
Sampled

I was really excited about the product based on the packaging and the name. I thought it would give my lips a great, long-lasting color because it has stain in the name. It goes on like a lip gloss but feels like water and then dries. It also didn't give much color. I put a gloss on over and like that look but I don't think I'll be buying this product.

uneven application
Sampled

The consistency of this product is not appealing at all. Coverage is uneven and unpleasant texture.
