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.

This is a near-perfect lip stain - gorgeous colour that's buildable so you can keep it light or go darker as desired and it's long-lasting to boot. It's only tiny flaw is that it's a bit drying, but so what? That's why there's lip balm. This is a definite thumbs-up.

Good gloss

I like this because it is not sticky and goes on sheer and can be layered to intensify the color.

One of my favorite lip products

I love this lip stain. It's very easy to build up color, and it lasts longer than other products I've used. I have problems with dry mouth and am constantly drinking water, and this stain holds up on me for most of the day. I have a full size but love the sample for evening bags. Great product.

I love stainiac!

It's very hard for me to find a lip product that isn't overwhelming with color and that stays on. This is it!

I already own the product, so I'm happy to have a mini size. I really enjoy this stain. It creates a very natural flush and stays put throughout the day. I had to experiment with the proper amount and application at first. Since it is a stain, you need to blend quickly and efficiently or you may have some uneven spots. I don't use it on my lips often, but I do from time to time. I like it better for my cheeks. I also travel a good bit and find it very convenient for using on the go.

I have this stain in a different color and it is my go to lip product. I think it absorbs well and I love that it lasts for a good part of the day.

Just enough color, that reapplication is totally unnecessary. All day long color is great.
