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.

Weird smell but great color
Sampled

I got this in Beauty Queen and it's a great natural, MLBB color for a fair blonde like myself. However, it smells a little weird.

Best stain
Sampled

This is the best stain because the gel texture gives you time to blend, but once it's in place, it stays. Color is great.

Great lip product
Sampled

I find that this product performs better on the lips than it does on the cheeks. I can never blend quickly enough and do it appears very blotchy on my cheeks because it sets so quickly. As a lip stain, I'm able to drink and eat and the product doesn't disappear.

this is just one of those 'meh' things for me. It's not awful, but not something I'd use frequently. If I want a liquid blush, I prefer Benefit's.

The only stain i'd use!
Sampled

I am so happy with this sample- i only like it on my lips, too sticky for elsewhere, but great base shade under a gloss!

Sticky but great
Sampled

This leaves a lovely flushed color on the lips and it lasts a good while. It's really sticky, but a balm layered on top takes care of that.

First stain, love it!
Sampled

I wouldn't have expected to love this product. I'm not much of a lip color girl to begin with, the bright pink color is really intimidating. But when you put it on, it blends really nicely into the lips, leaving a nice subtle trace of color.

Beauty Queen Sample

I'll be using my sample on my lips, not my cheeks. Pros: Nice color, made my lips plump and is buildable for a sheer or more concentrated pigmentation. Cons: Made my lips dry (I find that using lip balm/chapstick over it helps), and sometimes went on unevenly. Overall, the product was OK.
