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.

Stila lip tint

I love the Suttle tint on my lips and that it doesn't smear.

Stays for hours
Sampled

It's a stain. It doesn't bleed, it's not drying and it's not an overwhelming color. It is awesome! I get busy and drink a lot of water during the day so it's often pointless to reapply lipstick so it's very nice to have color and not have to reapply!

Just not for me
Sampled

It didn't work for me, the stain was uneven, the color too bright & just not something I would purchase.

Loved this stuff
Sampled

This stuff is great! It leaves a very natural looking touch to cheeks and a little goes a long way! It may look super pink, but it sort of transforms to the color you need it to be on your cheeks and lips.

I didn't like the texture of it on my lips it felt too dry and on the lip brush it has a color of a nice red but on my lips it has nothing :(

PLEASANTLY SURPRISED
Sampled

After my first two lip product samples were misses, I was a bit hesitant about whether I'd like the one or not. Lo and behold, I was ecstatic! It glides on easily and doesn't smear. It provides just enough tint to my lips, which I like. I'm not a fan of the garish lipstick coverage, but this gave enough color to my lips to be noticeable enough. I would definitely buy this product as I am a fan of glosses. A definite "go-to" for my repertoire.

The texture is great and absorbs quickly however it did not give color to my lips. I applied several layers to my lips but it did not make a huge difference. Disappointed on the lack of color.

Good lip stain
Sampled

This is my first lip stain and I really like it! It gives me lips a nice wash of color that enhances my natural lip color. My only complaint is that it doesn't last as long as I'd like.

Perfect 4 me@56
Sampled

I've never been one to wear lipstick or gloss but as I've gotten older I realized that the color in my lips is fading. This product is perfect for me. Light coat, light color, more more color and I can't drink it, kiss it, or eat the color away. I will be purchasing this!

Nearly invisible tint; don't see the point
Sampled

I applied this to my lips and couldn't really tell a difference. Despite the vibrant red color in the tube, the tint is all but invisible. It didn't taste great either. Not a fan.
