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.
theBalm Stainiac is the easiest way to add a little color to my lips without going overboard. I love the simplicity of the product.
I don't carry much makeup around with me but this product is always in my purse or pocket!
I have tried MANY different lipstains. I found that many of them were like markers that ended up drying out (with the top on) after only a couple of uses. This lipstain is amazing! It is thicker like a gloss. It uses a little brush that you dip into 'the stain' and then it can be applied to your lips like a gloss or to your cheeks (i like to dab a few dots in different spots on my cheeks and then rub them in to blend them), The color of the lipstain looks like it is going to be very dark by looking at the bottle, but once applied it is much lighter- actually it turns out to be a perfect color! I am now obsessed with theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac!5
This is my first time using a stain product. The color did not seem to do much or stay put very long on my lips. But I love it on cheeks-- the right amount of color, easy to control and blend. Will definitely buy when my sample runs out.4
I enjoyed getting this product. I really like when products with color come to my house. I thought the color was great for my skin coloring. And I liked it. I would consider purchasing this in the future.4
I don't wear a lot of lipstick, and stains usually leave a dry effect, BUT this product is great for that! It leaves a nice tint of color without leaving your lips feeling dry.5
This is a great stain. I have never used a stain in the past but I love it. I purchased it and I use it all the time. People notice the long lasting color on my lips as well. Great Product!!!!5
This is probably my favorite thing ever, amazing color and stays on all day! I don't know what I have done without this!5
I have purchased this product twice, love the staying power and it's so easy to blend! The color is natural and not overwhelming at all.5
I felt like the stainiac didn't not stay on very long at all when applied to lips. I like the idea behind this product, but wasn't impressed with the longevity. I did not use on my cheeks.3
I didn't like the way this looked on me. It didn't apply evenly and the color did not work for my tones.2
