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.

Nice stain, can get splotchy.

I loved the way this product feels on my lips, and it lasts for a long time. The only issue I had with it was mild streaking and spottiness, which may have been my own user issue. Overall, nice product!

I am not a fan of lip stain and this left my lips dry and red for days. I had to apply a lipstick to blend because it was also too watery.

I love this lip stain! It goes on light and just enough color to look natural. I use it just about every day.

Long lasting

The texture and scent was pleasant, although I was not very impressed with the color, but thats only because it didn't work with my complexion. The product lasted for a REALLY long time.

review for lips only
Sampled

i prefer a more pink-red shade but the viscosity was good. Not too thin, not too thick. Coverage was better than other stains I've tried that are too thin to apply without streaking.

AMAZING

This is perfect for an effortless look. it has a very subtle tint of color, but just enough to make your lips stand out. It is very light and easy to apply and it lasts for a few hours.

Natural look!

I love a natural looking color on my lips. I appreciate more of an enhancement to my regular lip color and of course some shine. This stuff is perfect for me!!

I don't like the consistency or how it applies. The color is too bright for me. Size is decent for a sample product.
