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.

Excellent lip stain
Sampled

great buildable color. Beauty queen is a great for medium skin color and looks good on cheeks and lips alike. Very natural look, and build able to be even better than natural. Not drying like most lip stains.

What they all claim to do, but now Staniac finally does....

Title says it all. Sort of-this product is not full-stop color and texture. It is like having eaten the dreamiest Popsicle ever created and the result is this marvelous hint of color, as if your natural lips possessed this shade. I cannot wait to try the other colors and use this daily alone and under other sticks and glosses.

Perfect tint of color
Sampled

I was so excited to try this product. I loved it. I am very fair skinned and this gave me the perfect tint of color. Most stains are too overpowering for my skin tone, but this was perfect. A little bit goes a long way.

Definitely a stainiac

Finally, a stain that dries in a few seconds and leaves a subtle "just kissed" look. Perfect color and consistency.

natural blush
Sampled

It blends easily at the cheeks with 2 dots at each cheek. It is very long lasting an it looks like a natural blush with a bite of gloss.

Love stains!

I love lip & cheek stains, they settle into my skin quite well & give a great color. This stain did not disappoint! I will be buying it when my sample runs out.

REALLY LIKE THIS PRODUCT
Sampled

I only wish it came in more colors because the reddish pinkish hue is only good with certain makeup looks - it's great that you almost don't even remember it's there, yet you have a great wash of color on your lips. Bottom line, if you want a great red/berry lip stain this is it.

perfectly pink
Sampled

I am a huge stain fan...I have multiple lip and check stains. This did not work for my cheeks, too sheer and I like a noticeable but naturalish blush. However, this was heaven for the lip, it enhanced my natural shade to make it absolutely perfect!!! This is my new go to everyday lip, not as drying as others I have used and works perfect with a light balm. I will need a full size soon!
