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.

Great stuff
Sampled

I've only used this on my lips and I love it. It really stays put and the tint is just right, not too sheer and not too pigmented.

I got this as a sample in a box a while ago and have been buying it ever since. It stays on for a really long time and you can decide how dark or light you want it to be. By applying more coats you can get a really rich color or you could just put on one or two coats for a light tint. It's fantastic!

This product is amazing. Im not one to really wear lip stick so this is perfect for me. Its a mix between a chapstix and a stain. Love it.

Best Lip Stain Ever!!
Sampled

I have big pale lips and despise using regular lipstick as I find it quite drying. I figured I'd have to settle for a life lived constantly re-applying various balms and glosses - but no more! This product was a game changer for me. The color is super flattering and long lasting. It doesn't dry out my lips when I apply it and other products can easily be layered over it. The best part is that even if my other products have worn off, my lips still have great color. Thank you Birchbox for including this in my sample box!

My Go To Stain!

My favorite stain. Have not found another I love as much as Staniacs. Have not used on my cheeks but love it for my lips. Drys quickly and lasts!

I got this as a sample and ended up buying it because I loved it so much. It has a light colored tint that i pair with a tinted lip balm for a daily pop of color to my work makeup routine.
