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 throwing a little streak on my lips before i walk out the door and don't have to worry about the stickiness of gloss or the reapplication of lipstick!

Pretty color

I really liked the lip stain. It went on very smoothly. It stained my lips nice and lasted a really long time. I would purchase it.

This is used as a lip tint and blush. Leaves a nice sheer dewy finish as a blush and a light hint of color on your lips. You can deepen the color by applying more. It looks very natural. Like your skin only better! Highly recommend this

I really like this product! I got a sample in my box and I love it! You can use a little for just a bit of tint or layer it on for a more intense color that is very pretty!

Best Stain I've Tried!
Sampled

I really like this lip and cheek stain. The color is subtle, and can be built on to appear darker, which I love, because personally, I like a more subtle lip color. As a cheek stain, same deal, it goes on nice and sheer, and can be built on, preventing you from accidentally applying too much at once. I will definitely purchase this stain once my sample runs out.

This stain is great. It's a great pop of color. The only thing I didn't like is it's a bit sticky after you put it on so I just put on lip balm over it and it's fine.

I was bummed out when the email came and I couldn't get the sample I wanted so I thought I guess I will settle for this. However i am so glad I got this. Best product ever! It added just the right amount of color to my lips that highlighted them for that natural look or I could add more for a more dramatic look. Good for a in a pinch when I forgot blush as well!

The texture was nice, not at all gooey, like some lip products out there.
