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!

I absolutely LOVE this product! With just a subtle hint of berry red color, this lip stain keeps my lips looking plump and beautiful all day long.

Just OK

Not really too impressed. Wasn't a good color for me for one thing but it also faded weird after awhile - as in only in some spots.

Great coverage

This stain is a great addition to my makeup kit. I use it alone as well as under gloss. It adds a great pop of color!

Gummy Lips

I didn't like this stuff. It made my lips feel gummy and nasty. Plus the 'stain' didn't exactly stain…I definitely would not purchase this item in the future.

A nice addition, but not the go to I expected it to be
Purchased

I like this product more as a lip stain than as a blush. I did find that it dried my lips out some. Overall, it's a decent addition, but not the favorite multitasker that I expected.

Really excited but was impressed

I was really excited to get this and received it in my box a couple of months back. I thought it would be a little bit brighter and more vibrant but I had to use quite a bit to even get a noticeable effect. Stick with the Bene Tint instead, its much better and you don't have to use a whole lot.

Love it on my lips

Gives me such a flattering and pretty, pink color on my lips. Really stains them well and stays put for a long time

This is one of my favorite products ever from birchbox. I use it as a daily. I love the color and it's a great starter for building my lip look. I also using it on the way out of the house. Everyone should have one, please sell more colors!!

A new favorite

I've been looking for a lip color in the red/pink family that wouldn't look ridiculous on me! Alas, I've found it! Fantastic coloring and feels good going on.

Natural Lip Color, perfect for outdoor events

When you wear make-up to an outdoor event, due to the natural lighting it tends to look heavy. You don't want to look like you're trying too hard, right? Staniac lip stain goes on easily and gives your lips a natural hue. Dab on a little and you'll have the "girl next door" look.
