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.

Good product

I like this product to take traveling as its uses are versatile. Lip stain nice and just the right amount of color. I was hesitant to try as it looked dark, but it isn't. On the cheeks is ok also for hint of color. Will take with me on a trip. Good idea!

I don't wear lipstick but this is great!! I like the natural looking color I don't feel 'made up.' Great for weekends.

I have been using this daily since getting it in my Birchbox. It's awesome. I love how natural it looks, especially half an hour or so after I've applied it...and for the rest of the day.

So much better than all of the drug store stains I've tried.

I can't stand the dry sticky feel of lipstick and most glosses. I love that I can use this product to get the slight hint of color I desire... It lasts all night, and all I need to carry is my regular lip balm for the rest of the evening. LOVE. It.

This stain does what it promises. At first I was scared that the color would be too bold, but once it was on I was sold.

I was surprised by how great this product is! I do not use stains for blush as they typically tend to be heavy, a pain to blend, and not the most flattering in color or finish. Stainiac is the total opposite- a lightweight gel that is super easy to blend for those who don't know what they're doing like me, can't be felt on the face, and the color payoff is super natural and not makeup-y looking. Just swipe on the cheeks, rub in and go! I will buy this.

Pretty shade

Received this product as a sample and am really enjoying it. Pretty red/pink shade that looks great on its own or under gloss.
