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 liked the color but the consistency wasn't very thick, had to apply numerous layers. i've never used a lipstain before so maybe thats how they all are but i did not like it.

Possible tint color issue...
Sampled

I liked the product but the tint wasn't as potent as I would like, it may be the color I received. Not sure...

I liked it!
Sampled

I liked this product. I would have given it a 5 if it had a little more staying power. When it was gone off of my lips so was the color.

Very light but stackable stain
Sampled

I was not expecting this to be so light, but it gives a really nice natural and subtle red lip look which is hard to find!

Ok

Not the best stain, not the worst. It's just ok. I wouldn't purchase.

Liked, but not my color
Sampled

I love the idea behind this product, and it worked well. Just not my shade, and I'm not big on stains! the texture was nice and it had good color pay off though!

It's okay

I like the fact that the color is very sheer but have a little trouble with the way it feels. Not sure if I really want to use it as an everyday thing.

Amazing Product!!

Love this product so much. I use it both on cheeks and lips and the color lasts all day. Will definitely purchase a full size when I run out.

A good product but not for me
Sampled

This seemed to be a good product, but wasn't so effective for me. I have olive colored skin and while reds do look ok on me, the stain was very light and didn't do much. It was a fine product just not something I would use or worked well for me.
