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.

Loved it!
Sampled

I really liked the texture of it, very different than most lip stains. It didn't seem to stain for quite as long as a traditional stain does, though.

Beauty Queen

Got this as a sample and there's nothing special about it. The brand is great and I wanted to like it but even after several layers, the color barely shows up on the lips and I hate the sticky feeling of applying it to my cheeks.

Good tint

This product was easy to apply and stained my lips a very pretty color. i only used it several times until I lost the sample. I think this might be one of my next beauty purchases.

This was like putting on one of those cheap lipglosses I wore in my teens. Sticky and had to reapply so many times to keep the tint on my lips.

AMAZING

The stuff is amazing. It really gives a nice glow and last forever. The color gives you a nice blush on your cheeks and a pretty berry stain on your lips. I bought it again and will continue to buy it.

Super colorful and fun for my lips
Sampled

I've worn this product a couple of times and it is super fun. If you are looking for a light red pop of color for your lips, then this is for you. It is not overbearning or an obnoxious shade, but very fun and great for summer. I would have liked to have it stay on all day. After a couple of hours it was gone.The stain is great for everyday use.

Love this stain.
Sampled

This stain lasts FOREVER and the color is great. I'm fairly light-skinned, and this didn't make me look washed-out at all. I got a lot of compliments on this lip color and loved that I could wear it to parties all night without having to reapply.

Not a fan

I don't like lip stains and this product did not change my mind. It was gooey and heavy feeling on my lips.

Great lip stain.
SampledPurchased

this product is a favorite of mine. Goes on with light cockle. Adds just enough color and shine. The color looks good on everyone.
