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 have oily skin and break out easily so I am hesitant to use this on my skin. It is very thick and gooey. I have used it on my lips. I liked the color but again noticed how thick it was.

Really great stain.
Sampled

I liked this. It is more subtle than some of the others, but it does stay on. I add a little gloss on top of it, but not too much.

This is one of my favorite samples. Its a nice sample size for tiny party purses. The color lasts for a long time and is a color I can use both day and night.

I really liked the shade a lot. I would have given 5 stars had I used it on my cheeks but I didn't like the way it looked. I did however loved the look on my lips.

Maniac for Stainiac

This was an amazing product. It is two-in-one, as the description says, and is gentle on my face (I have REALLY sensitive skin). It's a stain, so it's not going to add a ton of colour, just more of a tint. It's better for "natural"looks. It doesn't taste awful either (seeing as it may be on your lips as well) and does not smear. There was a noticeable difference between the colour of my lips with the stain applied and without. It does take a bit to dry, however. Try thin layers first and apply more as desired.

Dried Out Very Quickly
Sampled

I am a big fan of lip stains and was excited to get this in the birchbox. Unfortunately it dried out super quick and I didn't get more than 2 uses out of it :(

Great stuff

I've only used this on my lips and I love it. It really stays put and the tint is just right, not too sheer and not too pigmented.
