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.

I really enjoyed this product, mostly for its bright color and texture. I liked it the most on my lips, it did a good job as lip and cheek color but it was used best as a lip color, great packaging and a good sample amount. Thank you!

Very natural looking

I've tried other stains before and they leave my lips too dry, or leave streaks on my cheeks. I have not had any issues with this product. I have used it every day since I tried it. I am a nurse so no fuss products are my go to. This products is perfect, it lasts, is easy to use, and makes my life easier. I put it on my lips mostly, and on my cheeks for a flush of color on those days when I look like the living dead. It looks very natural which is why I love it so much.

Great idea but doesn't last long

This product would be great if it lasted more than 30 minutes. If you plan to drink anything, you will have to reapply immediately.

This didn't feel like I was coloring my lips with a toxic marker like other lip stains have made me feel. I don't think the color was really for me though.

Good product but I do not like to use stains. I found that it does not show much color on my lips.

nothing to rave about

I tried this lip stain and I really do not care for the watery consistancy, and I have tried multiple stains that were way better than this one.

This is a great lip stain. You can use a little for light color or add more layers for a richer color. It does not fade and lasts all day. This is an overall great product and I would highly recommend

interesting

I think I like it? I've never used a stain before, so I'm getting used to it. I generally don't wear blush and have rosey cheeks naturally, so it could be a bit much. So far though, I like it.
