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.

A very nice buildable lip stain.

Stainiac goes on light and is easy to build. I like to add a little lip balm over it to make it look more kissable. Works well on cheeks after moisturizer.

I like as a cheek stain... not so much as a lip stain
Sampled

This is a beautiful color and worked really well to highlight my cheek bones. However, my lips always had spots that were darker than others and the color seemed to fade quickly.

Great product

This stain is great. I put it on under my normal lipstick and as the lipstick wears off I still have color. It also looks great alone or with some gloss over it.

Perfect

My boyfriend and I both love this!! Lipstick color without feeling or rubbing off like lipstick. My boyfriend couldn't be happier that my lips look perfect but he can still kiss me.

I really liked having to just tote this around rather than two different bottles... I feel like this stayed on for the whole day and. Didn't wear off

Love this stain

This stain is really beautiful. I received Queen Bee. It leaves a really pretty pinky, warm glow. I am totally considering ordering this product.

Like it for cheeks, not lips.
Sampled

Maybe I'm in the minority, I don't know, but I really liked this product for cheeks. I've been looking everywhere for a creme or liquid tint for my face that is NOT glittery, and this really fits the bill. You don't need a lot to make your cheeks look pink, it's the closest I've come to a product that makes me look like I've been out in the sun and gotten a bit of color on my face. That said, I did NOT like it on my lips, it wasn't the greatest consistency for that, and I didn't particularly like the smell right under my nose!

Love!

Love this! Super light and very understated. Just enough to add a touch of color and look super natural still. Got this in a "mystery sample pack" with my order and definitely will have to buy more when I run out!
