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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Builds up color

Loved this soft rosy color. Great for day and can build up for night. This product is so nice because it lasts a long time and doesn't come off when you kiss! I liked to add some sheer gloss or balm over it for additional moisture.

Very Cool

This is very versatile. Lips and cheeks. I carry it in my purse for the mid day touch ups. It works as a great stain. I have shared this with my friends.

I like it

I like this stain for a hint of color or as a base under lipstick, it does seem to dry out my lips though.

Favorite birchbox purchase ever!
Purchased

When I got the sample....I just knew. I needed it!!!! I got it and it is SO easy to use and it can easily be reapplied. The color is great and the look after applying is close to natural, which I love! So worth the price. :)

love this!

I'd never tried a lip stain before and I ended up really loving this. It dries fast and leaves a nice, subtle color that is long lasting. I received the beauty queen shade which is a nice berry pink, but will probably purchase the homecoming queen shade.

Great on Cheeks

I love this stain. A little goes a long way. The color was a little dark for my fair skin but it is great if you are on the run. Just use a light hand - it will last longer!

Great cheek stain!
Purchased

I love using this cheek stain. It gives a natural flushed look without appearing overdone. It is easy to apply and layer for desired amount of flush.

Great color, but not for me

I think the color was nice and subtle, but for being called "Stainiac" the product is not very long-lasting. I noticed it fade almost entirely (from my lips) within the hour. I have not used this product on my cheeks, however.

One of my favorite products I own
Purchased

Stainiac is one of my favorite products. I mainly use it as a lip stain but it's cool that it's versitile. I love the way it goes on and I love the way you can layer it for a more intense color.
