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.

Love the color. The product holds up throughout the day and the color is really nice for day or night.

Takes getting used to

I didn't like the sticky feeling right after application, but once it dries the lasting color greatly outweighs the initial feeling. Great color!

The color is great and vibrant. The color on your lips will last the whole day even if you are drinking and eating food.

I did not care for this product at all. I definitely wouldn't be able to use as a lip product. I tried to use as a blusher but it just does not go on smoothly at all.

Great concept, subpar deliver

Totally love the idea of having a little to-go daytime super minimal makeup thingymabob, but 1) not super long lasting (if remotely long lasting), 2) worked TERRIBLY with my skin tone (I'm 1/8 Cherokee so this may not be an issue for everyone). Also disappointingly difficult to blend into cheeks.

Brings a fresh and natural tint to both cheeks and lips-- super refreshing as well. Doesn't clog pores either!!! Loved it x

Wasn't very impressed
Sampled

I didn't quite understand the point of this product. I tried it on my lips and not only did the color quickly fade, but it dried my lips up too. I didn't try it on my face because I honestly had no idea how to do it right. Do I smear it on? Dab it on? Who knows.

This balm is amazing as it is super versatile and can be used in many different ways. I love how I can use it on my cheeks as blush and it doesn't cake on- just looks natural! Quick lip application will give just the tint you need on the light makeup days.
