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.

Hated the color
Sampled

I only tried this on my lips (the idea of cheek stain is weird to me) and I hated the color it produced, it was a bubble-gum pink that didn't look good on me at all.

Beautiful color
Sampled

Easy to apply-love the wand applicator. Gorgeous color & long lasting. Doesn't dry out lips like other lip stains.

Lip Stain

This is a great lip stain, however I wish it was more moisturizing. But once the stain is dry, some standard lipbalm does the trick !

I didn't mind the product but the color was not for me.

Meh
Sampled

The color is OK, but it goes on too greasy and doesn't last five seconds. I probably won't even use up the sample.

Perfect Tint
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product as it gave just enough color to give your lips a natural tint. As someone who wears a more natural style this is perfect for me.

kind of a waste
Sampled

I thought this lip/cheek color would be different. When I received it i tried it on my hand and rubbed it in and got a nice shade of pink. I tried it on my lips and after about 5 coats of it i still couldn't tell the difference. I think it would be better for a rosy cheek look but i have not tried it on my cheeks yet. I am a little apprehensive to use it on my face because it is a lip gloss consistency and smell and just seems like lips only but doesn't do so good on lips./

Not for me
Sampled

I was originally really excited about this product but ended up giving it to a friend. I used it as a lip stain but the texture was really jell-like and it applied uneven. It stained parts of my lips and not other parts and it also made my lips feel strange, almost numb. The smell/taste was awful, too.

The balm

I've recieved this brand before and enjoyed it. This particular product was not up to par. It was almost like kids makeup. Didn't keave any color in my lips, and it dried them out. A disappointment from a brand I liked.
