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.

As effective as can be expected

This works Ok as a lip stain, but is a little too pink. Works better on cheeks than I anticipated but I don't love this type of stain. It's too hard to blend.

Pleasantly Surprised

I did not think I would like this when I got it but I was wrong. The color left a nice stain on my lips and lasted for a few hours. It wasn't very sticky and did not smear everywhere else. I haven't tried it as a blush yet.

Tints my lips so nicely!

Love, love, love this lip tint! Absolutely adorable when I don't feel like wearing anything heavy or too liquidy on my lips.

A dab will do you

I'm usually pretty apprehensive about lip stains because I worry they'll be too bold and bright. This was just the right amount of color! A little goes a long way.

Middle of the road stain

I liked the stain, but I didn't love it. The color was not as bright as I thought. I didn't really like the liquid consistency, I had to rub it in well to not get a ring around my lips. But I will keep using it, but I've used better stains.

i did not think it worked that well. Would prefer a lipstick or something with a moisturizer in it.

Just Ok

Kind of sticky and weird color when it first goes on, stain later in the day looked alright. Would definitely not use as blush.
