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.
I really like how quick and simple the theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac goes on. The color is not overwhelming, and it has a great, smooth texture that you barely feel on your lips. I will definitely be purchasing more in the future!5
This product is great for people like me, who enjoy a subtle level of color.4
I like this product as a lip product. It states you can use it on your cheeks and lips but I didn't like it on my cheeks. I did like the way it added just the right amount of color to my lips and didn't look overdone. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to add just a little color to their lips.5
This product leaves a nice, sheer tint to lips. It leaves my lips feeling a bit dry. You have to move fast if you use it on your cheeks because it dries fast.4
This is something I definitely wouldn't have bought for myself, but I do like it. It went on nice and it looked okay, I would just prefer to use a lip gloss! :)4
Seems like a nice lip stain - went on easily, didn't feel goopy or sticky - a little goes a long way - don't need much and it gave lips a great color4
I am not a big lip person; I prefer lipstick or chapstick.. never really gloss. But, I thought I would give this a try. I love the hint of color but hate the texture. I really could not get over the feeling of the texture, so I haven't tried it since.3
This tint didn't really last too long... I was disappointed because I was so excited to use it. I like the Benefit tints much better.2
Very sticky. Icky texture - gluey? - and didn't like chemically taste. Nice color in tube, didn't stain lips very much at all. Overall, disappointed. Did not try on cheeks.3
I was so excited to try a lip stain! I used it as a cheek and lip stain for a week and then went back to my regular blush. I do like it as a lip stain but it took me a while to get used to the sticky feeling and to find a combination that kept my lips moisturized and shining since the stain is color - no shine. It lasted about 4 hours and I had to reapply but then it was blotchy. I will keep trying - I really do want to love this product! Maybe a different brand is better?4
