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.

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.

I adore this product! A couple of swipes on my cheeks and lips and I am instantly polished, put together, and glow-y.

Beautiful crimson stain
Sampled

This lip stain is very sheer and looked so pretty on my lips, it stayed on all day, and I always got compliments because it looked natural. The best lip stain i have ever tried.

Perfect touch of color

Whether I want a lot of color or minimal color on my lips, I'm able to achieve the perfect shade! It's easy to use, lasts a while, and comes off easily if you accidentally apply too much. I'll be purchasing!

Must have
Sampled

This lip stain is awesome, and I don't have to worry about it rubbing off ; when your drinking from a glass or sipping on a straw. It goes on smooth and drys quickly. Its a must have.

Dry lips
Sampled

It made my lips feel quite dry. I didn't like the color it left on my lips either. It wasn't made for my skin tone.
