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.

in love with this stuff

I bought the full size, but the little one lasted a long time! goes on great- good color- not too bright. Great for someone like me who doesn't normally wear lip color.

Love this stuff!

This stain gives lips a natural vermillion appearance, and stays quite awhile. I haven't tried it on my cheeks, but am very happy with the easy, natural look I get with it on my lips. Also, it doesn't leave any color on drinking glasses.

Best stain I've tried. I might buy a different color, the one they sent is only slightly redder than my lips but I like it! Its not sticky, doesn't feel like i have anything on. I love that! Great stuff for someone who doesn't want something heavy on their lips.

Love this lip stain!

I would definitely not consider myself a lipstick/lipstain user, but I absolutely love this product. I have used it at least 20 times with just the sample version. It is a must have for your clutch on a night out!

Versatile!

I don't know whether I prefer this for my lips or cheeks. I am always in a hurry and to pick up this product and give myself much needed color in a flash is terrific!

Fabulous stain!

This is another product that I would have never bought in full size before trying the sample in my Birchbox. I'd never used a stain and now I can't live without it! Very very happy with my full size purchase!

I only tried this on my lips, but I loved it under my regular lipstick! It gave my lipstick real staying power without being dry or stiff on my lips!

Loved It!

Stainiac is now one of my favorite lip tints ever. I loved how it does not dry out my lips and is nice and subtle, but still a very pretty color with saying power.

It was very easy to apply. Sometimes you do need to go over again. It also helps to apply a gloss over it after it is dry.
