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!
Sampled

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.

I really loved the color of this product but as the day went on my lips felt super dry and irritated.

Lip stain only please

I'm not a big fan on dual products. This is a great lip stain especially when paired with a sheer gloss. I can't ever get the stain on my cheeks even.

I can't get enough!

I love love love this product! I got the sample and knew I had to get the full size. I use this as a cheek stain more than anything. I get compliments on how it looks like a natural glow. It's easy to use and not messy at all.

Great Color
Purchased

This color is the perfect anytime color. It goes on super soft and absorbs nicely. You can easily layer it to adjust the color. One of my go to products.

perfect.
SampledPurchased

It is the perfect color ALL the time. Put on lightly, it enhances your beautiful mouth. Put on more deeply, it makes you look like an understated movie star trying to elegantly keep in the shadows on a day off while trying to meet your lover for lunch.

Long lasting color!

A little too red for my pale face-I'm not used to wearing bold colors like that I'm more of a subtle girl, but on the occasion that I wanted a bold look I used this product and it was great! Very long lasting on my lips-stayed the entire night through eating and drinking!

amazing product

nice multitasking product to keep in your purse or makeup bag. works wonders as a lip stain (make sure your lips are exfoliated though) and even better as a cheek stain.
