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
Sampled

I like this product - good texture and unscented. Made in USA which is a plus. I don't usually use this type of product but will use the sample. Color is very sheer.

great lip color!
Sampled

i used the beauty queen color which I love! It's a perfect reddish-pink color. I liked that this wasn't a very strong stain, and was somewhat sheer, it helped it to look more natural in my opinion! Love it!

Effective
Sampled

I love this stain because my lips are naturally a darker color, so any opaque product such as lipstick is a no-go for me because it's very obvious I'm covering up my natural color. This just gives my lips a richer tint. Love it.

It's an okay product
Sampled

Received this product in my birchbox this month, I tried it twice already and I feel like this would be a great product on fair, light skin types. For me, with olive skin, the color is very light, especially in my lips, you can't tell that I'm wearing color. I guess that's what a stain is, just not my style.

Great Cheekcolor!
Sampled

I love this as a cheekcolor. Not so much as a lip color. But on my cheeks it gives a healthy reddish flush which I really love

Stain

I wasn't a big fan if this. I like a stain that has a mire vibrant color. Very similar to another cheek/lip stain I received from birch box earlier that I also didnt like.

Alright
Sampled

I love the Balm and I own several of their products. This one is not my favorite. It's a gel consistency as opposed to the usual liquid of most stains. I feel like this one sits on top of your lips instead of really "staining" them, and thus doesn't really have the staying power of a stain.

Just the right color
Sampled

After lining my lips these lip stain provided just the right amount of coverage. I like that it can be used for lips and as blush which makes it small and portable for travel.

Okay

I love the idea of this product but feel as though the stain isn't as pigmented as I would like.
