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.

Surprisingly liked it

I really enjoyed this product. I have watery eyes so powder blushes are always a bust for me. This stain worked way better than I thought it would. I also used it for my lips and was equally pleased. I actually appreciate how light the tint is and how well it layers for slight changes in the hue. If I'm feeling like I need to pamper myself a bit, this is definitely a product I would buy for that.

Multi-uses!

This stays on longer than regular lipstick/gloss and believe it or not it is great as a cheek color too! The color looks very red/dark in bottle but it doesn't appear that way on skin/lips... it seems to work in layers as far as how dark of a shade you want. Dries quickly and feels nice on skin & lips, not tacky at all.

Never used a lip stain before so this was a product I wasn't sure I would like. Definitely loved how easy it was to apply and the lasting natural looking color.

Simple, straight forward, long lasting
Purchased

I like applying this at the beginning of the day. I then apply a regular lip balm for moisturization purposes and a little colored gloss for extra wow factor. This is good as a base. If you put it on dry, it last for hours. I'd like one with a slightly less bright pinkness next time. I look better in dusky colors. But this is much better than my natural lip color on my off days.

Perfect for Humidity!

I LOVE THIS. I leave in Texas and it's hot. Like always. I love this because I can be out and about, obviously working up a sweat just walking to the car, and this stays on always. It's not melting off my face and it's just the right amount of color. It took me a couple of tries to get it right, but now it's a now brainer and I don't even need the mirror. I love it because it's a great pop of color without looking like I put a ton of blush on...very natural and I will buy again and again!

Loved it!

I really liked this product, I only used it on my lips but it didn't have a strange texture and it stayed on my lips for a really long time! I also really liked the color and how it looked on me. I use it all the time now!

This has been fantastic for long-lasting color - I can just apply a clear balm over it, especially when I'm on the go or at work. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

Perfect Size

I really like the Stainiac lip balm. After receiving it in my Birch Box (and using it all up), I ordered the full size. I am not disappointed. Like the natural color. Doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything. Just some extra oomph.
