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.

Used as both a lip stain and cheek tint worked well on both aspects. Color was rich but subtle. Size of sample was decent.

Loved this

This is the first lip stain I have tried and I really like this product better than traditional lipstick. I felt like the stain was subtle and long lasting

Using it wrong?
Sampled

Are you supposed to shake this or mix it? I put it on like lip gloss and it looked smeary & uneven. Also burned. Afraid to use on cheeks.

Meh...

Maybe this product just isn't for me, I was pretty excited about it only to be let down. Doesn't really live up to its name as its got 0 staying power.

A hint of color

I LOVED this product! I used it on my lips, and it gave me a very natural color. One thing I really liked is that it didn't dry out my lips, HUGE PERK!!!
