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 didn't like this color on my lips and this was just a little too light for my cheeks..I did love this concept of just a tint of color but this did not work for me..: (

Love this lip stain!
Sampled

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this product as a lip stain. I honestly expected not to like because of bad experiences with stains in the past. However, it looks great on because it isn't too bold and blends well. It also has incredible staying power!

I liked the color, but it dried my lips out really badly. I guess it would be better to top it off with a chapstick or something

Hated the color
Sampled

I only tried this on my lips (the idea of cheek stain is weird to me) and I hated the color it produced, it was a bubble-gum pink that didn't look good on me at all.

Beautiful color

Easy to apply-love the wand applicator. Gorgeous color & long lasting. Doesn't dry out lips like other lip stains.

Lip Stain

This is a great lip stain, however I wish it was more moisturizing. But once the stain is dry, some standard lipbalm does the trick !

The color is OK, but it goes on too greasy and doesn't last five seconds. I probably won't even use up the sample.

Perfect Tint
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product as it gave just enough color to give your lips a natural tint. As someone who wears a more natural style this is perfect for me.
