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.

Nice stain

I like the stain this gives my lips. It lasts a fair amount of time. I haven't tried it on my cheeks as a blush

I absolutely love this product because it works great on your lips and cheeks! I love that it's not sticky . I am unable to wear lipstick at all I just can't stand it on my lips the way it feels I end up rubbing it off immediately it will usually clump up or my hair will blow into it and get stuck ( not attractive!) . But not this product I can't even tell I'm wearing it it's si light and my hair doesn't get stuck in it because it's not sticky! Color is also very nuetral and not over powering Love! Love! Love!

Perfect Rosey lips and cheeks

Tried this product first with birch box sample and used it almost everyday. Really great for a simple put together and healthy look. Doesn't feel heavy or greasy and doesn't break you out. Absolutely love. Just purchased full size

Great wear!

I am not one who likes lip gloss or lipstick so this is right up my alley. A light, gel like stain and it goes on so easily. I got this as a sample and ended up buying the full size because version because I did love it so much.

Pretty Nice

This is my first time using lip stain. My lips are already pretty red naturally, so this only makes them look slightly darker. You wouldn't even think that something was on them. If I put a few layers on, it looks really nice. It goes on easily. The only negative thing would be that it leaves my lips feeling sticky and kind of dry. I need to put on Chapstick afterwards.

I bought the full size! Great for summer for lips and cheeks, very fresh when you don't want heavy blush

Absolutely Love!!

I am not a big fan on lipstick especially when it's vibrant. However, i love this stain where I can apply and then add my fabulous ever so classy chapstick over it for moisture and color. I am very picky with my lips as I generally have sensitive skin with them. This stain also works great on cheeks, but be careful to not make yourself look like a clown. Only add a few spots and them blend in smoothly!

Color without the waxy feel
Sampled

I can't remember the last time I bought actual lipstick because my lips just feel suffocated by it, but sometimes I want a little bit of color, so when I tried this I was pleasantly surprised! It really has no "feel" at all, simply a soft color that is long lasting and natural looking. My only minor issue with it is that if I don't use it for a while, it gets tiny little clumps in it which are easily dissolved when you "stir" it with the applicator. Really the only lip color I've liked enough to spend money on!

Great lip stain!

I love lip stains! I would wear this alone or under my lipstick as lipsticks tend to wear off. But when wore under, it seems to last a bit longer and once it has worn off, you'd still have some color on your lips. Will purchase a full size!

love this as a blush

I have oily skin and this is a nice formula. I like that it doesn't have shimmer so it won't interfere with a highlighter that does have sheen. The size is huge and lasts years.
