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.

Love its multiuse. It was not sticky & provided just a hint of flushed color.

Not a huge fan of stains since they tend to gunk on to creases and make me look crazy after half a day of wear but they found a way to do stains right with this one. It definitely goes on with a thinner texture so more than one coat is usually necessary but it doesn't set immediately so I'm much more carefree with my application which is liberating when I'm in a hurry. Would recommend if you're market to try a new stain - and the color is a bright red just in time for summer!

I hadn't used this until going to Coachella. I put some on instead of doing my whole usually face routine and it kept my cheeks slightly glowy and lips the perfect tinted pout!

Works well

It works very well and doesn't get on your teeth. The sample was so small though that it was hard to use but twice or so. It was different than all day lipstick.

I've recently gotten into theBalm cosmetics so I was pumped to try this when it arrived! I like that the stain is build-able/subtle when you need it and last all day on me. I would like to try other colors!

I'd never tried a blush like this. And I'm in love with it. Great colour and blends amazingly. Really buildable too.

Love, love, love lip stains! I always use a lip primer, then start in the middle of my lip and move out ward. The best part is that you can build layers for more intense color.

One of the best ones yet
Sampled

This is one of the best lip stains I've received so far. This isn't sticky and I love the classic color I got. It's long lasting, I just have to remember to use a lip balm first.

Stains are my favorite because they require very little upkeep. I always use a q-tip when using a stain so I can spread the product on my lips evenly. I haven't used it as a blush but I love it on my lips.

Great Stain

This looks great on and lasts! My lips also don't feel like they are having the moisture sucked out of them when I wear it
