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.

Love this stain

This stain is really beautiful. I received Queen Bee. It leaves a really pretty pinky, warm glow. I am totally considering ordering this product.

Love!

Love this! Super light and very understated. Just enough to add a touch of color and look super natural still. Got this in a "mystery sample pack" with my order and definitely will have to buy more when I run out!

Subtle but makes a difference

This stain dries quickly and is perfect for both cheeks and lips! I love how subtle the color and how it doesn't leave behind a sticky feeling.

Brilliant!

This product reminded me of benefits tints, but this is way better! I tried it on my cheeks and lips. It looks great, not sticky. I swear it makes my lips plump and look fuller. I absolutely love this product. I wear it over lipstick too. It is great for days you want to go all natural looking too.

sheer, natural color

I love the sheer, yet subtle tint of this product. You can apply more or less, depending on how much tint you'd like. This tint made my lips look naturally colored, reddish/pink. I loved that it wasn't glossy.

This is a great stain. It doesn't dry out lips or streak. Its great to put on when you want your lips to have a natural lip tint without looking like you have lipstick on, like at the pool or beach. Layer it on for a bolder color and add gloss!

Lip stain was perfect!

This lip stain was one of the best I have tried. It was more natural looking than most I have and did not go on super heavy. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone!

Never Going Back

I love this stain! The soft hint of color lingers and looks completely natural. My lips don't feel slick with gloss or sticky with lipstick. Using it on my cheeks gives a youthful blush. This is a product that I will really use!

Love This Stain!

Been using this for a couple years now, my ultimate fave! For all those negative reviews, the key is in the simple application. You must pat on cheeks with fingertips which gives the best coverage, it's that easy. As far as the lips, less is more and always start at outer edge of lips to avoid the inner "kool-aid stain" appearance some users refer to, then pat lips together, easy once again. I will never be without this product in my make-up bag!
