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.

Great tint !
Sampled

If you want a natural stained red look on your lips, go for this one. I've tried a fair amount of lip tints, and I really like the way this feels, and stays on !

Great amount of pigment!
Sampled

Love this, especially the application wand. The color is perfect; it looks very pigmented on the wand, but when you apply it the color is not overpowering. Also stays on well.

Cherry Red Lips

I had never really used a lip stain before I got this in my box. I normally go for subtle glosses or nude lipsticks but I must say, I love how long I was able to wear this without it fading. I don't plan on buying it since I don't really wear stains, but I do recommend it for people who do!

weird texture, needs multiple applications
Sampled

It has a gel like texture, which is odd. When you spread it on your lips, you need to let it dry then add another coat to notice a color. I'm actually fine with that, because it doesn't start as a crazy red color. I would buy this product.

Good

Doesn't add as much color as you think, but not very sticky-key in a lip product. Haven't tried it on my checks as am sensitive to face products.

lovely
Sampled

I'm a sucker for stains. I have pale skin and this compliments my skin tone so well. It took a few applications to get it just the right shade for my cheek stain but one application is enough for my lips.
