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.

This is a stain that looks EXACTLY like Max Factors rosewater gel I used to use . They no longer make it and I have never found a product that's remotely the same.
This is it's doppelganger! So very happy with this purchase! You can layer it as well for a darker lip. New favorite!!!!

Stainiac is amazing. I love this stuff. I was a little hesitant at first. But I know that birchbox never steers me wrong. They hit a home run with you! Thank you

Sincerely,

I've been reaching for this product more than anything. I love the color of the stain it gives and i only use it for my lips. This prodict does last but i do have to reapply after a few hours. This is my perfect lip product for when i want a no-makeup makeup look and makes my washed out face look alive.

Great!

I love this product! It gave my cheeks and lips a small hint of color in the gross winter months when your skin needs it. Looks natural and pink, not fake and cake like, like some
Bronzes.

awesome color!

I guess with over 66,000 reviews this product speaks for itself but I want to add to the greatness! I'm fair skinned, blonde, green eyes and I typically shy away from anything really bright - but when applied its just enough color to brighten up my face. I'm sure this layers well for a deeper color but a quick swipe is all I need to freshen up! Love this!
