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.

Good but not great
Sampled

I liked this product but I didn't love it. The stain doesn't stay as long as I wished it would have. Decent color. More pink than anything. You'd have to put on about 8 layers to get anywhere near red. I also didn't like the texture of the product. It really stays on the lips for a few minutes. You have to let your lips dry and set. I'll use the sample but probably won't buy.

Subtle Stain
Sampled

I really love the subtlety of this lip and cheek stain. I've always avoided the stuff for fear of getting too dark a stain and having trouble getting it off, but Stainiac Beauty Queen is a great match for my light to medium skin tone and was just enough color. I mostly use it as a lip stain and it stays on for a few hours.

messy wand

I think its a GREAT color but the wand is messy when applying. I think a different wand would help.

Not a fan

I have tried this several times and the color does not stay on for long at all. I like the color but it was gone shortly after I applied. It does go on nicely.

Woah!
Sampled

I was scared at first to use this stain. I had never had a "staining" product before. It sat on my vanity for weeks before I finally used it- and woah! Its a really awesome product! The texture is smooth and the color is really enjoyable. Not scary at all!

Prettiest cheek flush
Sampled

This is my go to beauty product when I want to add a little warmth without much effort. The "beauty queen" gives the prettiest fresh flush to my ivory skin and lasts all day on cheeks and lips.

I love this sooooo much!

I seriously love this product. It gives just the right amount of color with one swipe which can be built upon for a bolder color. It makes my life easier and its such a great color.

It seems okay

This is the first time I had used a stain. The colour made my natural lip colour a lot darker then I expected it to (I think mine is the Beauty Queen, do not have it on hand). I haven't used it as a cheek stain because I am afraid it will be too dark.

The perfect hint of color!

I received this in my November box and was very excited to try it. It leaves the perfect hint of color on your lips, without the think, messy feeling of a rich lipstick. It's light and lasts a long time. Loved it!

In Love!

I use this mainly as a blush and it works perfect. Goes on smooth and easy to blend. The texture is smooth and doesn't really have a smell to.
