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 don't usually wear lip stain so this was a little more color than I'm used to, but the product is great! It stayed on well and didn't dry out my lips like most products. I would order a lighter color.

Interesting

The little container it came in was really cute. I liked the writing on it, it definitely caught my attention. Looking at it, I figured it was some type of lipgloss. I would've never guessed it was a lip stain AS WELL as a stain for the cheeks (in other words, works as a blush). I thought the blush aspect of it was really cool especially if you're going out and don't want to carry much you get 2 in one. I just wish the lip stain was more noticeable on the lips as it was on the cheeks. But overall, it was a cool product!

I guess liquid stains aren't for me
Sampled

The last two lip stains I have gotten have been very similar. They just make me look like I've eaten a cherry popsicle with a red ring on my inner lips. This just doesn't work for me and it also doesn't taste very good.

Not my style

A translucent stain like this is not really my style. It's a good product, but I will give it to a friend.

Pretty, well, average

I was excited to try this product as I like having a pretty minimal morning routine. I felt like this was your very run-of-the-mill lip stain. It lasted the same amount of time as your drugstore tint, and felt the same.

Too dark for me and a bit sticky

Too dark for me and a bit sticky. Wasn't crazy about this.

Natural looking with a hint of color
Sampled

Loved this lip stain and have received lots of compliments when I wore with a naked face. Looks natural but adds a hint of color to brighten up your overall makeup free face on lazy sundays
