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.

When using the lip stain it almost had no color to it on my lips. Even when applying it over another lipstick it still didn't do anything for my lips.

I usually love Balm products, I love the fun vintage packaging, the cutsie names for their different items( especially their eyeshadows!) but the lip/cheek tint stain did not really did not make a noticeable difference.

Texture is really strange. Not sure how it can be used for lips with how thin of a texture it is. And definitely would put on my cheeks.

Very pretty, very subtle
Sampled

I really like this for everyday wear when I don't wanna wear a lipstick or gloss. It just gives a pretty flush of color for lips and cheeks.

Too bright for me
Sampled

This color looked pretty bright on me but most lip colors do. I did like using at as a base under a more muted lip color.

I really liked this product since I don't really wear that much make up, looks very pretty on fair skin! Will definitely recommend to my girlfriends!

I prefer powder

I didn't care for this shade. It seems like a great idea but I just don't use this type of blush. I prefer powder

I liked the stain. Tried on my cheeks but was' the crazy about that look. I did play around with my lips and added another lipstick with the stain and it turned out really pretty. Got lots of compliments. Still on fence whether I will purchase again.

Good for light days
Sampled

I was excited to get a stain, I've been wanting to try one! I like to have a nice color on my lips that I don't have to worry about how it will look as it is coming off, or how sticky it might be. This product goes on easily and adds a decent tint. It is not drastic at all and I am not a fan of the color I received, but it seems like a fine product especially for easy days.

I've never tried this before but I like the glossy shine and color. I may purchase this in the future
