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.

GREAT stain
Sampled

I usually find lip & cheek stains too drying or tough to apply. This, however, is neither. It's very moisturizing and easy to apply. It goes on so smooth, and looks especially great on my cheeks. It's just a light wash of color, so it looks like a really natural flush.

Good multi purpose product
Sampled

I like this product in that I like how I can use it for several things. The color is pretty bright for a check color, but just a little works for me. Nice product.

Great Stain!
Sampled

I was really excited about receiving this sample in my January box, as I am a big fan of the other products I've received by theBalm and this didn't disappoint. Great stain, build-able and non drying.

I don't know...

It didn't stain well for me and it mostly stained in the one spot that you put it on. Not for me.

Unsure about this.
Sampled

I'm not sure if it is normal or not, however the consistency was gel like and the color did not pop as much as the color implied that it would.

Yuck
Sampled

I received "Beauty Queen" in my box as a sample. It's awful. I hate the color, on my lips it looks like I've eaten berries and stained my lips and the texture is that of slime. On my cheeks I look like I burned my skin. Would not buy. Love the brand though!

Love the color. Looks great on lips. Looks good on cheeks but still unsure how to apply right.
