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.

stain?
Sampled

it barely leaves any color on your lips. looks like i have nothing on my lips actually. it does not make your lips dry which is a positive.

Easier to use than other stains
Sampled

This stain is a little thicker than most and it makes it easier to use and apply, especially to lips!

Interesting product
Sampled

I haven't tried a combines loland cheek stain prior to receiving this sample in my BirchBox. The texture on my lips feels very sheer and dries quickly. This product doesn't absorb well and appears transparent. It takes a few applications to even notice a change in color of lips. However, this product works great on my cheeks.

Works great, tastes terrible!
Sampled

I loved this stain - it was a perfect pinky red on my lips. However, it had such a strong medicinal taste...that was hard to get over. But - the color and lasting power was amazing! Hoping it was just a bad sample, and the full size omits the taste.

Just a hint of color
Sampled

The first time I tried this, I didn't really like the results. It's difficult to apply it evenly. After trying it a second time, though, I was pleased. It adds just enough color to be noticeable to me, but it's great for work because it's not too much.
