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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Best lip stain I have ever used!
Sampled

I have tried many lip stains, and this is by far the best. It does not fade and leave that awful ring around the outer parts of the lips. If you plan on using it for a cheek stain, don't bother; however, it is an excellent lip stain.

Ok

The subtle color is great. I love the concept, but the color does not last more than a couple minutes.

Not for me

This is a good product for people who like stains. I personally don't use them often. It didn't really change the color of my lips. I'm more of a lip liner and lipstick girl.

Love the staying power

I am a lip balm lover - especially in winter - and this tint allows me to wear all the lip balm i want and still have a little tint on my lips. I just wish the Beauty Queen wasn't SO pink. It's a little bright for me.

Good color and quality of the product. It lasts but is too sticky for my taste, especially for use on lips.

nice color, long wear!
Sampled

I love the idea of this product. I'm all about long-lasting color. I put on my cheeks under blush so I could keep the rosiness of my cheeks longer and it seems to have lasted. I like the pink color, it's usually the color I go for

good overall

Love the color but it dries lips out just a bit. Make sure to start with a small amount when using on cheeks and build onto it. Fairly long lasting and great tube design.

Good not great

I want to like this stain. It's not a great shade for my lips but I'm going to try it again as a cheek stain and hope it works better for my coloring. It goes on smooth and is pretty easy to blend in.

I liked the product and like the idea of a lip stain as apposed to a lipstick. The Beauty Queen would be the color that I would choose and will buy at a later date. Also, tried it as a blush and like that as well.

I like the idea of staining the lips, but the pink hue of this sample is not quite right for me (I'm a redhead), and I feel like it doesn't really last that long. Even with a sealer on top!
