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.

i LOVE this product

I am a big fan! I love products that can do more than one thing and I love that this can double as a cheek stain as well as lip. I usually am guilty of rubbing a hint of my lipstick on my cheeks, anyways. I appreciate that the stain isn't too obvious and only enhances color. I only wish it would last longer and give a more polished finish.

Excellent shade, lasts long

I do not like wearing anything heavy on my lips (excludes most lipsticks) so I love using the Stainiac to provide the color I like on my lips without the heaviness. Adding a bit of gloss above, and I'm all ready to go. Love the stainiac!

Great color

I really loved this lip stain. The color stayed on pretty evenly throughout the day, unlike other stains I've used. It was a little sticky at first but after awhile it went away, pretty much any balm or gloss is going to be sticky anyway.

It's fine

This product is fine, but I wouldn't purchase it. I have fair skin, and it barely showed up on my cheeks when I applied it. I didn't want a ton of color, but it was just too light.

The best Lip Stain

This is the best lip stain I have ever used, hands down! It lasts forever, tastes and smells great and is good for conditioning your lips.

Stay Power!

I loved this color - but I did have to use a few coats in between in drying so that I could get the color I wanted. Shame they only have one shade in each box!

Natural color for dull winter skin
Purchased

My skin gets pretty pale and dull during the winter. I don't normally where a lot of make-up so I find it tricky to get the right balance of color while looking natural with the rest of my make-up. This product was perfect. It gives just the right amount of color to liven up my face. It lasts all day and it only takes like 3 seconds to apply. This is a new staple for me.

Stainiac in beauty Queen is definitely a staple for my beauty routine. I got a sample through Birchbox in one of my very first boxes almost a year ago and it has worked wonders for me. As a girl, I love wearing makeup. But, my boyfriend wouldn't dare kiss me if I had lipgloss or lipstick on because then it would rub off on him. With the stainiac I get the same great color that I love but with non-smudging last. It's great for me because I get to have the lip color on that I love without sacrificing my boyfriend for it :) Win-win.
