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.

Loved it!

I really liked the texture of it, very different than most lip stains. It didn't seem to stain for quite as long as a traditional stain does, though.

Got this as a sample and there's nothing special about it. The brand is great and I wanted to like it but even after several layers, the color barely shows up on the lips and I hate the sticky feeling of applying it to my cheeks.

Great lip stain!

I love lip stains! I would wear this alone or under my lipstick as lipsticks tend to wear off. But when wore under, it seems to last a bit longer and once it has worn off, you'd still have some color on your lips. Will purchase a full size!

love this as a blush

I have oily skin and this is a nice formula. I like that it doesn't have shimmer so it won't interfere with a highlighter that does have sheen. The size is huge and lasts years.

Love it!

Just got this in the mail yesterday, and it's already my new favorite. Just the right amount of tint, seems to last pretty well, and a very pretty shade. Love it.

Used on my lips and loved the color. You can make it as light or keep adding to it to make it darker. It did rub off after a while but I would purchase this product next time I need a stain!

I keep this in my bag at all time, and use it to look moderately polished at the end of a sweaty day or even after swimming.

I adore this product! A couple of swipes on my cheeks and lips and I am instantly polished, put together, and glow-y.

Beautiful crimson stain

This lip stain is very sheer and looked so pretty on my lips, it stayed on all day, and I always got compliments because it looked natural. The best lip stain i have ever tried.
