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 think this is a great product it's light stain was a bit to bright for my skin tone but once toned down it was perfect. It left no residue on my skin so my larger pores weren't left clogged and caused minimal break outs. If you only need a touch up here or there this is a great product to own.

There are better

I have light olive skin and this barely showed up on my lips and cheeks. There are definitely better options out there.

Not a fan...

This lip stain is very watery and doesn't feel like it moisturizes at all.

Simple Pretty

I had never used a lip stain before I tried this product! I had no idea what I was missing out on. This pretty lip stain was such a simple and pretty way to complete my makeup routine. I will definitely buy a full size when my bottom-less sample is gone.

Love the color
Sampled

Don't forget that this is a lip STAIN. So, there was a little color left over after cleaning my face. However, I love the color and it went on smooth. I didn't have to reapply all night :)

Meh, not for me

This is a lip stain that, on me, is a barely there wash of color. It gives me just a hint of red to my lips, which is nice, but it dries my lips out and wears off oddly.

Worked great

I was worried about the color when I opened this, but was pleasantly surprised at how subtle it was and that it was buildable. It definitely had the staying power of a stain and if you blended very quickly, it blended well on the cheeks. This color is really not for me as it is more of a pinky color and I wear more brown tones both on the lips and cheeks. Other than the color the only negative I found was that on the lips it was pretty drying, however a little clear gloss over the top and that problem was solved. If this came in a color that I wear, I would definitely buy it.
