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.

I'm not one to were a lot of lip stick. I mainly stick to a moisturizing gloss. I miss the color but it's such a pain to keep applying it. The color on this last all day long. It's now my must have lip color.

This product is great! I use it on my lips, both alone as well as over lipstick and on my cheeks! Love multipurpose products to cut down on clutter in my bag!

This product is fabulous! It is very lightweight and doesn't feel sticky at all. The color is very flattering to a variety of skintones.

suprising

Immediate thought after applying, this feels akward. It was almost jelly like and didn't seem even, but after a few rubs it blended to a beautiful natural red

Long-Lasting and Great Color
Sampled

i wear this stain all the time when I want to enhance ,y natural lips. It makes my lips a soft red color without adding any glossiness or sheen, which I like. I usually apply it twice during the day and that's all I need to retain the color.

Love!

I love this! It's one of the greatest things I've gotten in my birchbox. I love the fact that it applies to make your lips look brighter and natural, but you can really layer it to give it the best pop! It makes me look more awake and youthful when I'm going for a natural makeup kind of day.

This stain is really awesome. You can apply and reapply all day and it doesn't get built up or gross. It leaves lips looking colorful and healthy. I'll probably be buying it when my sample is done.
