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.

Looks natural

My sister purchased this product at Birchbox and wasn't a fan, so she gave it to me. I love it! It looks natural and is long lasting. I plan to purchase another tube when this one runs out.

Very good!!

Love this product. The stain goes on really well and lasts all day. The color is just enough to notice without being flashy.

Great, natural looking product.

I'm a dancer so make up that stays put is a must. This goes on in the morning and gives me a natural flush all day. The only downside is you have to rub it in quickly after you apply or it spread unevenly, but once it's blended it looks super natural and doesn't budge. I also wear it on my lips as well!

Great!

Not big on lip products but I love this stuff! It has an interesting texture but it goes on great. It soaks into the lips very nicely and is not too dramatic of a color, gives your lips a nice tint.

I love to carry this in my bag to quickly refresh my make up with out having to carry blush and a brush in my bag. I used this a a blush and it can also be used as a lip stain. Its great for those busy people who have many after work events and need to refresh your make up

I am a huge lipstick person, especially mattes because they can last so long. I have never liked tints before but this tint is perfect for when I want a long lasting and a bit brighter lip. The only issues I've had with it is if my lips are super chapped, but otherwise it has consistently given me a long lasting and great experience. I love love love the sample and plan on replacing it after I use it up!

I love this as an alternative to my normal lipsticks

This solves my problem for wanting to wear lipstick and wanting to kiss my new born baby all the time! The stain makes my lips a nice deep rosy pink color and I can wear it under lipgloss or chap stick and not worry about needing touch ups.

A Stain Alright!

This color soaks into your lips. So if you want to wear it, it will be on you for a while. I love it! It is a natural looking stain. It isn't soft and slick, but it does the trick as far as color! You can put chap stick or gloss on top of it. It is a great product!
