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 product. Perfect as a blush on a day when you don't feel like going nuts. Even for a novice like me, no way to mess up application! Nice big sample but will purchase when it's gone

I loved this when I got it as a sample and I still love it months later as a full size product!

Great lipstain

I got this from my monthly sample box and fell in love instantly. It goes on smoothly and stays on, also last for quite a long time. I'll probably purchase this once my current lip stain stash is depleted.

Didnt Love it...

The texture was very unpleasant. It reminded me of coagulated blood ...yuck! It was weirdly sticky and slippery all at the same time. Not a keeper. I had high hopes, but it fell way short.

Doesn't stain at all

As a STAIN product this is awful. It is really only useful with a strong liner & then as a gloss on top. Doesn't last more than an hour either. I wish for samples we could block things we have already gotten that we do not like & maybe favorite things we would like again should they become available for samples again.

One of my favorite lip products.

I'm already familiar with this product so I was pleased when I got it in my birchbox. This is the queen of lip stain products. It means business. It lasts all day and the shades are gorgeous and flattering to all skin shades. If you're looking for an awesome stain, this would be the one to get!

Cheek stain

I actually liked using this as a cheek stain more than a lip stain. It made my lips streaky and too bright. The color was great for my cheeks.

great idea

I used this everyday until it was gone. What a great product and fun to apply too. I used it on my cheeks mostly.

JULES

I LIKED THAT IT WENT ON PALE AND I COULD ADD MORE TO GIVE IT A DEEPER COLOR. IT HAD A LIGHT FEEL ON MY SKIN AND I LIKE THAT I CAN USE IT ON DIFFERENT AREAS.

Great color. Versatile.

I love using this on both my lips and cheeks. It provides great color, without being too overpowering. It is easy to use and great for traveling.
