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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

I love lip stains and this one is great. The color isn't too bright and the wand makes application easy.

Loved this stuff! I have had trouble finding a lipstick color as well as one that will last. My sample was Beauty Queen and it just happened to be perfect. It looks natural and pinky in color and it lasts. I will def. be buying this.

I love lip stains and this one is definitely up there on my list of awesome stains. I was using it to get ready before going out with some friends and they all liked it so much on me that they wanted to try it too! Everyone's lips looked great that night. Highly recommend.

I don't try many new lip products, but Birchbox always sends me items I love. I used just a dab and it was subtle enough that I noticed it, but it wasn't too dark. Having the option to use more for a less subtle look is nice. Great product!

The one I've been looking for!
Sampled

I've been on the prowl for a red lip product for my upcomming wedding in December. Nothing has worked, and then this arrived on my doorstop! It went on much more shear than I anticipated, but allowed for multiple layers to intensify color. Felt a little tacky on my lips, but I think a clear gloss over top will fix that.

I really love lip color, but don't like anything that's overwhelming. This stuff is perfect for me!! Gives me a nice touch of color and I just put a bit of gloss on top!

easy to use

For some reason, this stain was easier to use than others I've tried. Stayed on my lips and not my teeth, nice and sheer, not too much color but natural looking, Would have to try a darker shade.

Love the subtle natural color this gives my lips & cheeks. Layers well under clear gloss or lip balm. Very natural looking color.

I received this sample in my August birchbox in beauty queen. I have a light complexion, but this color complemented my complexion perfectly. The color also lasts longer than other stains I have tried.

I love this stain. It's not to bright or dark if gives you a little pop of color and lasts a decent amt of time. I would purchase the full size
