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.

Love this for my lips!
Sampled

I haven't tried this as a cheek tint yet, but it is the perfect wash of color for my lips. I've been wearing it pretty much everyday since I got it, and it has decent staying power so far.

Impressive
Sampled

I've never used a stain before, so I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this product. It wasn't sticky on my lips at all, and the color was very sheer. It left a great color and stayed on all day. I'm a big fan!

Not sticky
Sampled

I've never liked stains because they seem sticky but this keeps lips moist and glossy without the sticky messy feeling.

Really nice shade, but...
Sampled

I've been wanting to try this for a while now, and it's nice. It leaves a nice stain. However, since my lips have a darker shade, it takes a few swipes for it to show up. It's a nice subtle stain. Probably will be most effective for people with light skin tones.

I love this product, the taste sucks, but I would definitely purchase in the future. It's a gel - like consistency. Unlike other stains you do have to reapply more often, but it's gives. Seth evening or day look.

Great Lip Stain
Sampled

Very effective stain, I like the consistency and it's very easy to apply and get good coverage. Seems to have good lasting power, applied and 6 hours later my lips were still stained. Only complaint I have is I wish the Beauty Queen was a little more red and less pink. It seemed to get a pinker tint as it wore off.

Love Staniac
Sampled

I have loved every product that I have tried of The Balm's and Staniac is no exception. The color is great and long lasting. The ONLY thing that I didn't give a 5 is the texture--it's a gel, and it goes on smooth but you have to wait a bit for it to dry before applying a 2nd layer if you want the color darker, other wise it just sort of goops up. But overall, I really like this product.

Great stain!
Sampled

I love the texture of this product. It goes on easily with no mess or goop. It also lasts a while, even through lip balm application over top of the stain
