theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

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 seriously love this product so much. It's probably the best thing I've discovered as a result of my Birchbox subscription. Easy to apply, long lasting and such a great shade <3

This is the Balm stain!
Sampled

This is the best stain I have ever tried. It has a sheer finish and leaves my lips feeling nice. I thought it was going to be bright red, but it just left a nice, soft, flush of natural color to my lips. Will definitely be purchasing when my sample runs out!

I did not like how this went on. It was splotchy and did not stay on well.

Really like it

It stayed on for a long time but kind of faded. I like the fact that it really stains your lips so when you drink or eat it doesn't come off completely. Also loved the color.

Like the tip

The tip on this stain was the highlight. The stain itself was just normal. Having a lip gloss tip made the staining experience easier.

love it

I don't use lip products often, but this has become a go to when I want just a little color but don't want to deal with transfer or touch ups. It's great for me to put on in the morning and then I just use my lip balm as normal the rest of the day.

Perfect Light Color

This is perfect for a little bit of color. Stays put all day and not too overwhelming despite what it looks like in the tube
