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.

Best Lip Stain Ever!!
Sampled

I have big pale lips and despise using regular lipstick as I find it quite drying. I figured I'd have to settle for a life lived constantly re-applying various balms and glosses - but no more! This product was a game changer for me. The color is super flattering and long lasting. It doesn't dry out my lips when I apply it and other products can easily be layered over it. The best part is that even if my other products have worn off, my lips still have great color. Thank you Birchbox for including this in my sample box!

My Go To Stain!

My favorite stain. Have not found another I love as much as Staniacs. Have not used on my cheeks but love it for my lips. Drys quickly and lasts!

I got this as a sample and ended up buying it because I loved it so much. It has a light colored tint that i pair with a tinted lip balm for a daily pop of color to my work makeup routine.

Love this!

I've only used this on my lips, not my cheeks. I love it! It gives a nice sheer color that stays put and looks subtle - it does a great job of brightening up my lip color without looking too obvious. And it lasts for a long time, so I didn't have to reapply very often.

I love this product. It is great as a lip stain and to use as a blush. I like that it just adds the right amount of color to look natural.

Great product!

Excellent product. Texture and color very nice. Just need a very small amount to use as blush. Gives cheeks a soft natural hint of color not harsh at all.

Perfect stain in a perfect color! I use this on a daily basis since it's light enough to look natural

Laveee it

This gloss sets and does not budge once its on! It also comes on lightly with one coat or a little darker with 2 or three depending on how you prefer ! Love this product the most because im not a fan of lipstick and glosses usually rub off or get sticky and messy! Make Out proof and gives your lips a gentle and natural red pout for ur night out !
