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.

Good product. Would like to try some different colors. Already use a product like this, but the stain does last a while and looks nice with a lipgloss over top.

Right amount of tint
Sampled

I have used this product only on my lips. I'm not a fan of lipstick because it makes me very self conscious but this has the right amount of tint and last me the whole morning. Gives a little bit more color to my face.

Simple and Subtle
Sampled

I really liked this product a lot! I was scared the stain would be too much, too bright, too dark on my lips, but it was a nice subtle stain that made my lips show up and didn't go overboard. Would totally buy this in the future.

Great and stays on!

I love this. It's just enough color to add a little something without being in your face. Great for work, class, or date night!

Not a fan
Sampled

Out of the box, I loved the color and it is one I'd typically gravitate towards. But once applied, the color didn't look that great and I did not like how sticky it felt.

Perfect Hint of Color
Sampled

As a busy mom, I love this product. It's quick and easy to use. It travels well and the color lasts much longer than a lipstick or gloss. A single application gives lips a natural bump in color, while several layers adds a real punch of color. It's great on its own or as a base under lipstick or gloss.

This balm is not effective, the only purpouse is give color to your lips and the product does not do that

Takes too much product
Sampled

To get desired shade, I had to use a lot more of the balm than I thought and it clogs my pores and I ended up with a minor breakout.

This stain is so smooth and just glides right on. There is no sticky residue and the color really lasts hours.
