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.

LOVE IT!

I love lip stain, and I've been using Benefit's stain for a while now - love to use stain, then gloss or chapstick - stays on forever. I love the light layer of this stain - you can use as little or as much as you want, and the color is fantastic! The Benefit stain lasts a bit longer, but overall, I prefer this one - goes on light and easy - new favorite product!! Oh, I used it on my cheeks too - looks great!!

I actually like this better than Benefit's version of it. It leaves a nice color and is buildable on the cheeks for a more dramatic effect if needed.

great every day stain

I tried this stain one morning before work and I've kept using it every day. This is one of the best stains I've tried. It's subtle for every day wear and easy to apply.

perfects lip line

As I have aged my lips get lighter all the time. This stain lines and fills them with color that is beautiful and natural under any lipstick or gloss.

This product is great. I'm not a big look at me lipstick person but the color of this goes perfectly with my light skin tone and adds that little pop I need to my makeup. I will be buying this. It really gave me the "I feel pretty" feeling.
