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 product!
SampledPurchased

Excellent product. Texture and color very nice. Just need a very small amount to use as blush. Gives cheeks a soft natural hint of color not harsh at all.

Loved it! Perfect stain
Sampled

Perfect stain in a perfect color! I use this on a daily basis since it's light enough to look natural

Good, but drying
Sampled

I liked it, but I find that it dries my lips out quickly. The color is very, very nice though!

Nice on Lips

I still prefer the Benetint stain, but this was a nice change of pace. I liked it on my lips. The color was perfect.

Very natural.
Sampled

I really like this lip stain because the color is sort of sheer as opposed to a lot of other lip stains that can be harsh. It gives off a very natural tint which I personally enjoy. It is also a lot more moisturizing than other lip stains i've tried. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because it does not last very long in my opinion.

Beautiful, subtle color
Sampled

I love the color of this product and am loving these types of products that can be used on your lips and cheeks. I like putting a swipe of it on my cheeks for a bit of color. It is a subtle color but if you put a few layers of it on your lips, its a nice subtle red that's perfect for every day.

Needs reapplication
Sampled

I really liked the rich color and how it looked when I put in on in the morning. I found though by mid day the color had gone from around the edges and only remained in the center of my lips. Around lunch time I would reapply to the edges. Did not care for the way it looked after a few hours so i really won't use this product.

Just ok
Sampled

I got this as a sample. I wasn't too impressed. It does taste good. No shine so you still have to use a lip gloss. don't got out of your lip line or it will stain the skin.

Laveee it

This gloss sets and does not budge once its on! It also comes on lightly with one coat or a little darker with 2 or three depending on how you prefer ! Love this product the most because im not a fan of lipstick and glosses usually rub off or get sticky and messy! Make Out proof and gives your lips a gentle and natural red pout for ur night out !
