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.

Nice color

Color is very pretty and can be easily layered. I added a clear gloss over it to add some shine.

It was ok

As far as lip stains go, it was pretty nice. Not sticky, not too dry, not too intense. I actually preferred to use it as a blush. But I have so many better blushes it's really not worth it.

Not happy

I felt it blended in too much with my natural lip color as well as it wiped off very easily.

Love this! It's the prefect lip shade for when you don't want to appear as if you're wearing make up. Very natural looking but still enhances your lip color.

Apply carefully

I've always struggled with 2-in-1 stains. You have to apply then blend quickly. My lips are dry and this magnifies that unfortunately. Just not for me.
