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.

This lip tint has a slippery feel that is so much more comfortable than other tints that I've tried; there's no drying and crusting along the edges either. One sweep adds just the lightest pinch of color, and you can build to as deep a rosy red as you'd like. I've used it under AND over other lip colors, and it works well both ways. Lasts a decent amount of time, and feels good the whole time.

As someone who's not a fan of lipstick or lip gloss (anymore), this lip stain is the greatest invention ever! It leaves the perfect amount of color without leaving any "residue" on your lips.

Perfect

I have been able to use this product on multiple occasions, it is a perfect color and lasts all day and night. It goes on super easy and smooth and dries relatively quickly making it last the night!

I DO NOT use this for my cheeks, as it is dark and dries too fast to correct mistakes, but it's great for my lips! Tastes a little gross, but I can get over that for a nice tint all day.

This stain looks very red in the tube but goes on real light for a nice hint of color on lips and cheeks. I'm very pale and it's not too much.

This lip tint is amazing & is one of my top 5 favorite samples. It leaves a nice red/pink tint that looks natural but still has pop. I use it daily and would defently recommend purchasing it or getting a sample. Works best on fair toned lips.

I was concerned about trying this product. The color looked like it would be terrible on me against my fair skin. I was really surprised to find that it really is just a hint of color. It's the perfect about for someone wanting a little tint to their lips without going crazy or overboard!
