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.

I love this stain. Got it as a sample and purchased full size right away. Can intensify as needed and the color seems to compliment any makeup combo. Use as a base to deepen other sheer tints/glosses as needed. It's running out and I will buy it again!

Amazing stuff!
Sampled

I la-la-loooove this tint! It's just enough to brighten lips without going overboard. I don't exactly think it has a lot of staying power ( or maybe it's because I always have to have Chapstick on before I add anything else to my lips) but to run to the store or a few quick errands around town this is the perfect effect.

Really LASTS!
Sampled

I have been waiting for warmer weather to try this sample on my lips (because of the brighter color) and I absolutely love it! I wore it to a wedding and only reapplied once after eating. I really love the shade and how you can add more for a darker hue, or only apply a thin coat for a lighter shade. I will definitely be purchasing this!

Perfect stain

Absolutely love this stain, never faded after only one application in the morning. Tried another popular stain but this one is the winner by far. Will definitely buy a full sample!

Nice!

I enjoyed a lot testing this as I am not the kind of person used to wear makeup. I liked how natural it feels and looks, and also, loved to use int on my cheekbones.

Great product
Sampled

This is a great little product! It so versatile! I used on my lips and it just added the right amount of color without looking like I really had anything on. I also love using it on my cheeks .. It brightens up my face and gives me a younger radiant hue!

Beautiful stain
Sampled

This stain I love for my lips and my cheeks. I love using it for a really natural look on a busy morning or a beach day. It leaves my cheeks with a glowing, pretty rosy pink stain that looks like I just got some sun on my cheeks. It leaves my pale lips with just enough color to brighten up my whole face without over doing it.. but it can also be built into a deeper darker color for more of a POP!

LOVE IT
Sampled

I have never really been a fan of lip products, I never really wanted to accentuate my mouth or teeth, but this product is so smooth and bold without being over the top, I LOVE IT. I can't say enough about it really. It is red enough to feel like you are wearing a bold color but because it's a stain, it feels so natural and you don't get pigment everywhere!
