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.

Natural look- lasted
Sampled

I liked the consistency of the balm and how it gave my lips what looked like a natural blush of color. This shade works perfectly with my lip skin tone - was not too bright which is an issue I have had in the past. Did not use on my cheeks but it lasted well on my lips.

simple and interesting

I personally wouldnt buy this product just cause, but i will use the sample while it lasts. Im not a fan of how the application feels when applied. but overall it does give you a tint of the color. its not a very solid bold color

great product

Love this! I wear it everyday. Stays on great and easy to apply. Color is perfect for daytime, and you can layer for a more dramatic evening look.

amazing all around--easy to use, beautiful shade and lasts in the warm, humid Florida sunshine. never used a stain prior and was a bit intimidated but pleasantly surprised that you can't mess up! looks great on cheeks and lips!

A Stain Done Right!

This lip stain really works. It stays on forever and does not feel sticky. It wears really nicely and I usually wear a shimmer chapstick over it to keep my lips moist. The color is cute and the sample size has lasted a long time with tons more in the container.

I am a huge fan of The Balm products and Stainiac did not let me down. Its quick, easy, and adds just the right amount of color.
