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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

I like that this lip stain is a gel so it doesn't make my lips feel dry or sticky when I put it on. I like to put a little gloss over it for a more subtle look.

I really liked this
Sampled

I really liked this 'stain'. It goes on smoothly and easily. It stains evenly and lightly, giving a nice color that is not too strong. I would buy more of this.

Lovely lip stain
Sampled

I really like this lip stain. The color is nice (although not the most flattering for my skin tone) and it isn't too heavy. I always enjoy a product that can get two jobs done at once!

This is not better or worse than a drug store brand I used in middle school. I'm not impressed and it does not stay on lips.

Loved how long lasting this lip stain was! Even through drinking water and coffee

I just don't get it

It didn't really do anything to my lips. They were a little pinker for about 5 minutes and then that was it. It didn't moisturize my lips either.

not a fan

I want to like stains, but I have chapped lips and large pores, neither of which work well with this type of product

What the?

I don't wear a lot of make-up so I didn't dare apply to my cheeks. I feared I would look like a clown, or a doll from a horror movie. I used it on my lips & I can't say I'm a fan. It was like applying jelly to my face.

I love this product!

The color is pretty sheer, but nicely buildable - though that takes a little time to let dry and reapply. I wish there were some more color choices. I've yet to find a stain that really stays on all day, but Stainiac comes as close as I've found. It'll stick with me through lip balm applications, though not through a meal. Still, that's pretty good! My tube is getting pretty empty - and I most likely will buy again.
