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.

This is my absolute most favorite product I've received in my birchbox! The color was perfect and lasts so long! Has been used in many weddings and I still have plenty left over! ❤️❤️

I NEED to buy more of this! I've tried stain in a solid, and in a felt pen- and this one by far is the best. goes on evenly and stays there. Great!

lost lips

As someone on the go all day long I count on my makeup staying put. I was excited to try this and hoped for a day long look that was great when first applied but like many stains it was gone before lunch. Very disappointed

Maniac for Stainiac

I have fair skin and I just love how natural the Balm Stainiac looks on my lips. It can be a bit too harsh on my cheeks. This is a must for summer.

It was really good for cheeks

It looked gorgeous on my cheeks and stayed on for a very long time but I was crazy about the way it looked or felt on my lips.

Rosy cheeks

I used this to give my cheeks a pop of color. I apply a dab or two and rub in and I have natural looking rosy cheeks.

I really enjoy this product. I'm not a big lipstick wearer so this stain gives just the right amount of tint for me.

Stays on!

I hate wearing blush. Mostly because I hate having to reapply it throughout the day after powdering my face. This stuff stains it and you don't have to worry about not having perfectly flushed cheeks all day long. I did try this on my lips and it burned slightly. I washed it off and stuck to using it only for my cheeks. It may work for some lips, but definitely didn't work for mine.

Color stays put!

Does not rub off on your man. I wish they made this in another color because it is a little bright but I like the lightweight consistency. And it's great to wear under other lipsticks and glosses.
