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.

Was okay

I personally didn't see a difference hardly at all when applied it my my lips or cheeks, i didn't like it on my cheeks at all to wet for the face for me and i felt like all it did for my lips was dry them out, don't think i would buy it

Great!

Loved this lip stain. It's not as drying as some others I've tried. It goes on well and has good staying power. I rarely go for a dark red and usually just leave put on a layer or two, it gives my lips a very healthy, natural color. I will likely purchase this soon!

Not a great color for me, but nice product

It went on well and the color stayed better than I expected, but the color itself wasn't right for me.

Not too effective
Sampled

Granted I am usually a lipstick kind of girl, but I was just not impressed with this stain. I didn't see any color after application, and it mostly just felt sticky on my lips. Even though I know it is only supposed to give a little color, it was hard to get even color if any at all.

Lip Locked

Loved the tint of the stainiac and that it stays on your lips all night. The con was that I had to put on Vaseline underneath so it didn't make my lips look so dry!

Too Sheer
Sampled

I felt like it didn't really add much color to my lips. It was more like it made them a touch rosier. The texture was also very sticky for a while which I disliked. Wouldn't want to put it on my cheeks.

Just ok...

This stain wasn't bad per se, I don't like stains that are too drastic, but this one I couldn't even tell I had on at all. I tried it on my cheeks, and I couldn't see the tint. Then I tried it on my lips, and it has a weird consistency (which I actually liked- it was more like water feeling almost) but again, I couldn't really tell that I had put it on. Just needs to be a little bit darker!
