theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

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.

This lip stain provides a natural pink tint to my lips. Makes a very natural look but still enhances your lip color. It is great for summer but I plan on using it into fall and winter. Once it dries, it doesn't feel heavy or greasy.

I absolutely love this stain. I found if I let a nice layer of it dry before applying my lipstick or gloss of choice I still my lips still look full and poutey after my boyfriend kisses my lipstick off. ;)

Perfect lip stain
Sampled

It's like you're not wearing makeup. Perfectly berry tinged lips are what you're left with after one application. A second coat will leave your lips a little sticky but the color lasts most of the day. Definitely perfect for stashing in your clutch!

I love this stuff. It you lips that perfect tint without standing out to much. I apply when I'm going for a more natural look. And it feels great.

I used a very light coat, added a light coat of concealer and topped with glossy clear gloss for the lightest hint of pink nude lip.

This stain looks really natural and is really easy to apply. I feel like I need to reapply it often, but when I first put it on it is picture perfect! And it doesn't make me look like I painted my lips.
