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.

The Balm: Great lip enhancer
Sampled

I wear it daily under a lip gloss. It gives just enough color to look natural & not too bold. Love this product!

Love this stain!

This is a light stain (even though application appears thick). I like that it is subtle, and you have the opportunity to add more for a more blushy look. This is the best stain I've ever used! I am considering purchasing more! (I like that it gives me a natural, rosey look when I don't want to wear makeup)

A very light color. My natural lip color actually. And birch box made a mistake by accidentally sending 2 in my box. But I'm very happy with this product

Lovely -- Natural buildable color

This lip tint has a slippery feel that is so much more comfortable than other tints that I've tried; there's no drying and crusting along the edges either. One sweep adds just the lightest pinch of color, and you can build to as deep a rosy red as you'd like. I've used it under AND over other lip colors, and it works well both ways. Lasts a decent amount of time, and feels good the whole time.

As someone who's not a fan of lipstick or lip gloss (anymore), this lip stain is the greatest invention ever! It leaves the perfect amount of color without leaving any "residue" on your lips.

Perfect

I have been able to use this product on multiple occasions, it is a perfect color and lasts all day and night. It goes on super easy and smooth and dries relatively quickly making it last the night!

I DO NOT use this for my cheeks, as it is dark and dries too fast to correct mistakes, but it's great for my lips! Tastes a little gross, but I can get over that for a nice tint all day.
