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.

This stain made my lips look like they were stained by KOOLAID!

Very great lip stain, however the color was not for me. But I did like the consistency and it did not feel goopy.

This is a great multipurpose product. You can add a little color to your cheeks, lips or anywhere you want. It's a lightweight gel that you dab on and it's so easy! Great for on the go touch ups!

I really like stains. However, the consistency of this product is not my favorite. Not a fan of the gel.

I love 'The Balm' products and if I used any type of stains, I am sure I would love this product. I did use it for review purposes and it works well. Just not my kind of product

I loved how this shade can be subtle or intense depending on application and it matches fairly well with any skin tone. I typically have a hard time with lip stains because they dry out my lips but I didn't notice that with this product.

a little this, a little that

This sheer lip stain is perfect for those minimal or no makeup days when you feel like your look needs just a little something. I would recommend taking it with you on your way out the door though. Its moisture & long lasting level are on the lower side. Over all, still a cute essential product :)

I have used other stains in the past and I felt as if it gave a bolder color. I had to put several coats on before I could notice the stain on my lips. It does give a nice glow on cheeks.

Not as effective
Sampled

I was excited to try this sample, but I didn't find it to be that much of a stain on my lips. I applied it as directed, but the stain did not last and it seemed a little blotchy when I first applied it.

nice stain!!

This is a great overall stain for both lips and cheeks. I mostly use it on my cheeks as a quick way to brighten my face and add some color. The stain lasts all day long!
