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.

Great stain for those who don't wear lots of color
Sampled

I typically stick to natural colors, so I LOVED this. It was easy to control how much stain/color you wanted (I only used it on my lips) and I loved the texture/feel of this.

LOVE

I love this stuff, I genuinely use it all the time. I don't wear very much makeup but always stick with mascara and some sort of blush, and this cheek stain changed my life. Stays on, looks natural, will probably buy.

Nice!

I love this stain! It smells great, it layers well for a very natural or more robust look, and it lasts. It looks perfect with or without gloss over it, and while it lasts well, it doesn't look weird as it fades because it soaks into your lips so well. It's very easy to apply, and a great choice for someone who likes a more natural look or doesn't want to worry about how their lipstick is holding up.

New favorite lip color
Sampled

This lip stain gives my lips a natural color that lasts all day. I simply put it on , let it dry and add a little chapstick or something similar over the top for an all day color.

Subtle color, great for spring!
Sampled

I don't typically like lip gloss so I was a little weary of this when I first got it. The color is so subtle and comes off a soft pink instead of red! It's perfect for a more conservative event or just running around ton. I love it.

Really liked this product. Sample was great. Color was flattering and long lasting, and it applied on easily and evenly. Would recommend.
