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.

Perfect Color!

Was nervous when I received this, as it looks dark in the tube, but once you put it on your lips or cheeks, it is the perfect color! The sheer tint looks great with my light complexion and blond hair. Would definitely purchase this!

sexy lips

This is a great stain for the lips! It is the perfect color and last very long. I wear it when I go out and even during my work day when I wear no makeup but just the stain on my lips.

First Time Stainiac
Sampled

I have never used a stain before but always wanted to try one. I love this product! I haven't been brave enough to use it on my cheeks yet, as I don't usually use blush anyways. However, I love this on my lips! It gives a nice color and once it dries you don't even feel it. I can't wait to try out different shades! Thanks Birchbox!

messy wand
Sampled

I think the wand was a little messy when applying. Its a great color and I'll definitely use up this sample but probably won't buy the product.

Color coverage too sheer
Sampled

I did not care for this product at all. I've used benetint before, and this doesn't measure up. The coverage was too sheer, and the consistency too sticky. I won't be purchasing this.

I understand the appeal of a multi-use product, but I would NEVER put it on my cheeks as a normal part of my routine. Too bonded to a compact blush.

The color was terrible and super red for my skin color. I have a lot of gold and olive undertones and it looked terrible

I love the way this looks on both my lips and my cheeks, but I don't love the way it feels on my lips. When I wear it I need to wear some sort of chapstick or lip gloss on top so that my lips don't feel completely dry.

I really loved the shade! After about 30 minutes of wear the color seemed to end up in the corners of my lips (even with lip primer or without). I tried to wear very little and a little more. Regardless of how much it always ended up in the corners of my lips before an hour was up.

I used the staniac on my cheeks and I had to use a lot for it to show even a tiny glow. I think its because I have very pink undertones. I just think I'll stick to my Powder blush.
