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.

Fabulous stain!

This is another product that I would have never bought in full size before trying the sample in my Birchbox. I'd never used a stain and now I can't live without it! Very very happy with my full size purchase!

LOVE This!

I only tried this on my lips, but I loved it under my regular lipstick! It gave my lipstick real staying power without being dry or stiff on my lips!

This is my favorite product I own! It's light and works prefect in the summer to give my lips some extra color

Stainiac is now one of my favorite lip tints ever. I loved how it does not dry out my lips and is nice and subtle, but still a very pretty color with saying power.

It was very easy to apply. Sometimes you do need to go over again. It also helps to apply a gloss over it after it is dry.

Yes please

I liked how it could be just barely there or ramp it up for nights out.

I've only used this on my lips, but I love it. It goes on really sheer, stays put and you can't tell you actually applied a cosmetic if you apply it lightly. It just makes your lips look rosy and healthy.
For days when I don't want a swathe of lipstick but I want to look a bit nicer, it's perfect.

Hint of color

I really like this product because it's a barely there type lip gloss. I'm not the type to wear a lot of lipstick or lip gloss but when I find I like a calmer look.

I used this as a cheek stain, it looks so natural! Easy to apply, I usually struggle with stains because they streak, but this flowed on and was easy to apply.

stays on, isn't sticky. The color really suited my skin tone. Sheer coverage, although I did need to put a bit more on the inside of my lips because it turned out lighter.
