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 is in my pocket right now. Love this stuff. I've never been a fan of lip gloss or lip stick because of the greasy or sticky feeling. This stuff give subtle color without any of that. A little chap stick over it, and I'm set.

The balm stainiac lip stain
Sampled

This product rocks!! A little bit goes a long, long way. I only used this on my lips (don't really use blush/blush like products much). I wore it for a date night with the hubby. A few dabs to both lips, rubbed them together and than applied a random clear gloss I had and WOW! The color was subtle and beautiful but, definitely could be more dramatic if I had applied more than a few dabs to both lips before applying the gloss. Then I was amazed that even though we went to dinner and out for drinks before ending our night, I never I do mean never had to apply more color to my lips. It was there for the entirety of my night! All I had to do was apply more gloss here and there the few times I freshened up. Even crazier was the next morning when I woke up and the color was still on my lips and looked soo nice. After eating, drinking, kissing, ect it was still there all those hours later and all I used on my lips was a few small dabs. A full size tube would last till I'm old and gray lol :-) a definite great sample and great buy!

loved the color

I loved this sample and would consider purchasing the full size product. If you prefer a natural look, it goes on light or it can be layered for a brighter color. Overall a great lip stain.

What a fantastic lip stain! The color isn't overbearing but just the right shade. I would definitely recommend this as an every day lip color.

great lip stain
Sampled

this is really an awesome stain in a great color. only thing is I wish it was a little thinner in consistency because it sometimes will glop on the edges of my lip but it's an easy fix. if I didn't already have my benetint i would definitely purchase. Love the color it leaves my lips!

Stain With Me

I really liked this product. It gave just the right hint of color and it stayed put for a long time. I love that it made my natural lip color just a little richer. Not enough to look totally different but enough for me to feel confident.

Touch of color
Sampled

I have never heard of Stainiac. I do not like the feel of most lip stains. This goes on so moist, dries fast and leaves a nice soft color that lasts, without feeling tacky. The sample size is great. You get a chance to try it out many times. This is on my list to purchase
