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.

Great product and has the ability to be universal in uses. I like the color and texture, which makes it an easy product to make as part of a daily routine.

Okay

The product was ok but it was a strange consistency and I thought it was weird that it was supposed to go on your face along with your lips. I have a different lip stain and I thought it would be similar but it did not go on very well. Also the it took many layers to get the desired color.

Not for me.

It's a very subtle shade, which means its buildable. Trying to build it though turned ugly, as I started to look like I drank too much cherry slurpee instead of a rosey red tone. It sounded gellish upon removal of brush, but went on somewhat watery. The product has no smell, but tastes slightly sweet. Didn't actually "stain" my lips well, since I was able to wipe some off after blotting and barely touching it. Not a fan personally.

I hate the color. I hate the texture. I hate trying to get it off again. Good heavens, there is not much to like with this product. It does not go on well. The color is like a Barbie's lips from the 80s, which is just not flattering for me. No thanks!

The color and consistency is great, It is just not my favorite way to have lip color.

I love this item. It goes on well and smells clean. I will probably purchase in the future. It seems to last long too.

I really liked the color and texture of this lip gloss, but it faded very quickly.
