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.

Finally a lip stain that stains!
Sampled

I have tried many lip stains in the past and have never found one that satisfied my desire for a non-sticky/greasy, well tinted stain that lasts. This product does exactly what I expected it to. The ability to layer the stain to get the color desired and the light feeling after it absorbs is great. I forget I have it on.

Perfect flush

Sheer. Flattering. No off putting flavor. The only stain I've used that isn't sticky.

Loved the lip stain because it wasn't too overbearing but provided good color to lips

Great! Easy for touch ups during the day. I enjoyed that it could be used for cheeks and lips. It stayed on pretty well and smelled nice.

Small but packs a punch!
Sampled

I received a sample of this product, and a little goes a long way! The color is very saturated and gave my lips an insanely beautiful stain. I LOVE products that look great initially and then wear well throughout the day. The staniac does just that. It also looks great when layered underneath a lipgloss or other lip product. Can't say enough positive things about this sample :)

I only used it for my lips and I love it . It makes them redder but with a natural look to it.

Pretty and Subtle

I've never used a lip stain and really loved it. It's subtle, but very pretty.
