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 loved t his. It is easy to apply and gives a perfectly mild stain to my lips. I typically apply chap stick or gloss over to help keep my lips moisturized.

Color that lasts
Sampled

I liked this product because the color really lasts, and looks great on cheeks and lips. I felt like it left my lips a little dry, so I will be using with a lip moisturizer in the future.

Perfect Color
Sampled

This product is great. I love that the color doesn't have to be bold, so it's just right. You can use more to make it more vibrant if desired. I haven't tried it on my cheeks like it mentions because I love it too much for my lips

Did it make anyone else's lips tingle?
Sampled

No? Just me? Okay then. Other than that, this stuff is pretty nice. Long lasting and able to adjust the sheerness!

okay

I like the color, but the consistency was a little strange. I liked it on my lips, but it was difficult to apply on my cheeks

Subtle and Long-Lasting
Sampled

I love this product. It is not too strong or thick, so you can build up the color as you wish by adding multiple layers and applications. I add a clear gloss on top to accentuate the stain. It lasts much longer than other lip stains I have tried. Great shade for my olive skin tone in the Winter!

This product is marvelous!
Sampled

Years ago stains dried so quickly when you put them on you didn't have a chance to blend them on your skin. This product overcomes that issue and works marvelously to give a flush to your cheeks or lips. Feels great and works like a dream.

Love this as a lip stain!
Sampled

I prefer this product as a lip stain. It is so light and gives just the right amount of color to be noticeable but subtle. Even works under chap stick.

Cute Color, more of a gloss
Sampled

I am not really into the gloss look and would prefer more of an opaque lipstick that way it is more noticeable. It is however very cute and a great color, just not right for me.
