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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

I totally love this lip stain! It leaves a soft, subtle, pink hue on my lips and lasts through my morning coffee!

AWESOME TINT

I was wary in trying this out...as I have never really used tints before. This was amazing at giving me a subtle rosy color on the cheeks. Nothing to heavy. I am going to purchase the full size!!!

Perfect Lip Stain!
SampledPurchased

I had never used lip stain before, but after using my sample of this, I am so happy to have received it! I had to get a full size one! I love this product, because it is very light, and stays on most of the day. You can use this stain to add a little color to your face, and for lips, you can use it under a clear gloss on fancier occasions! Highly recommend this!

This product doubles as a cheek stain and lip stain and it was GREAT! Love the color it added to my cheeks...gives it a natural look!

Love it-Gorgeous red color without going overboard
Sampled

I love this product. I'm a fair skin blonde so red lipstick can look trashy on me in an instant but I so desperately want to wear it! This makes your lips look so naturally beautifully colored that people might be trying to buy your DNA for research. In the winter, I do reccommend putting chapstick or clear gloss on first, because the stain does not add a lot of moisture. It does not look cute if your lips are even slightly dry or chapped, it will really exaggerate that. But slap a little chapstick on first, let that dry slightly then put this stain on and get ready for the most natural, gorgeous lips you've ever had.

awesome color
Sampled

I will admit that I am color shy when it comes to lipsticks and glosses but after receiving this in my birchbox I am now a red lip fan. This color looked great against my fair skin and wasn't too sticky or faded. I would definitely recommend this.

Best stain ever!
Sampled

This stain is no lie, when it says it the best stain ever! It stains your lips super fast and you can still put on your regular chapstick over it through out the day. You can layer the stain to give you a darker/deeper red, or just do one coat and let your lips look fresh and pink.

I am not one to wear lip color. I usually dislike it. But this product is great. Not too dark or too light. Just enough color to make my lips look great.
Will be purchasing this product.
