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 how you can make this Sheer or darker. It seems like it stays on for a long time. Nice!

Not for me
Sampled

I just can't get this to work for me. It doesn't blend easily on my oily skin no matter how quickly I try on my cheeks. It doesn't last or taste good if I try it on my lips.

Pretty Color
Sampled

I was scared of the color at first, after applying this gel. It was a very pretty color. I would buy this one and keep it in my purse for just in case coverage.

I seem to lose this thing all the time but when it's not lost its always in my purse. This plus mascara and eyeliner are all I need to live.

I flippin love this stain. Stains are all I wear. I am elated that I have one I can throw in my purse. This is the first item in my Birchbox that I am excited about. I am shocked and surprised I even got it. Way to step it up, BB!!

Great lip stain
SampledPurchased

I love giving my lips some color before I go out, but I hate lip marks on glasses or when it just fades away. This product is great because it gives lips that color without the annoyance that lipstick or gloss does.

Favorite lip stain

This is my favorite lip stain! You can do a little or another coat to make it darker. Great for everyday when you want to go light on the makeup.

Lasted throughout the entire wedding
Sampled

I wore this last night to my friends' wedding, and it lasted almost all night. I just needed one touchup after dinner. It's a bit drying, but a layer of lip balm over top made it look and feel great. Love it!

love this lip stain
SampledPurchased

Ive never used it for cheeks but do like it as a lip stain. It has a nice color and the tint stays on for quite a while even when i eat. I've purchased some for myself and my mom and she loves it too!
