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.

Awesome!

I am someone who doesn't wear a lot of make up so this was a product I had never tried prior to getting it in my box. It goes on very easy and is the prefect shade. I mainly use it on my cheeks since I usually just wear Chapstick on my lips. Lol! I am buying more when sample runs out.

Love it, bought the full size!

I didn't even wait for the sample to run out before purchasing the full size.. Now, the sample is in my purse just in case and the full size is in my makeup bag :). I'm not one for lipstick and a lot of lip stains leave an uneven weird stain or dry out my lips or even get on my teeth. This one doesn't! It's awesome! Just a little bit of color on the lips makes me look more awake and fresh, especially on those days that my lack of sleep is showing :P

Great tinter for lips and cheeks

I have now replaced my blush with this light tinter, it doesn't add more makeup to my face and has a nice sun-kissed cheeks look.

Great lip stain!
Purchased

I loved this lip stain so much that I bought it immediately. It goes on smooth and you don't even know it's on once it dries. I haven't tried it on my cheeks, but love it for the lips!

Great for Lips and Cheeks
Purchased

This is a great simple flush for cheeks and a subtle red for lips. It's dark enough for lips that it just looks like a natural flush but it's definitely noticeable. Great for me as someone who is nervous about wearing a bright red lip, but wants some color.

Nice color but a bit dry

A great concept and a great color. The tint is very natural, flattering and pretty. It requires a lip balm or some other moisturizer to avoid making the lips dry.

Love this!

I have never tried lip stains before, so I was skeptical, but I LOVE this product. It's just a hint of color which is nice, and it stays on your lips. You can put chapstick over it and you still get the pretty color, which i love.

Fun!

I got this as a free sample with my order and I really like it! It's very subtle, but easy to wear. I have only used it for lips and probably will not try it for cheeks. I like to put some clear lip gloss on over top.

Stainiac fantastic!

Great stain, looks very natural. The soft tip brush is awesome! I like to top the stain off with a gloss or moisture stick.

Just the right amount of pout

I liked it. I like to dab on cheeks or enhance my red lip with it. Creates a vibrancy to my pout. The stain isn't too heavy and lasts a good amount of time.
