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 love this stuff! I actually layer this under a sort of nude gloss for a lovely burnt rose color.

A little bit of this goes a really long way--great stain!

AVERAGE LIP
Sampled

This product looks more like a lip stain than a lip stick. It reminds me of kool-aid. I do not think I will buy it.

OK

If I put the stain on totally dry lips, it would probably work better. I keep chapstick on my lips 24hrs a day. Applying the stain over chapstick was ineffective. Color and shine did not last.

Not a fan of lip stains

I'm not a fan of lip stains, they always feel too matte-like and weird to me and this one is no exception. It wasn't nearly as dark on as it is in the tube...it was a pretty understated tone once on.

Just ok

I like the stain, but it's a little sticky. it also doesn't show much color, which I like. I prefer lip color that is "lip" color.

Too dark
Sampled

I was very excited when I received the sample. I like lip stains. They stay on for a long time and don't rub off and don't dry out your lips. I didn't like the color, I thought it would be lighter than it was. Ended up giving it to my daughter as play makeup.
