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.

Perfect Amount of Color

I received this product in Prom Queen and it offers the perfect amount of color. I used it mainly as a lip tint and it lasts all day. Make sure you use a moisturizer on top.

Great color and staying power
Purchased

This was my first stain, and I love it! The color looks dark in the tube but goes on much lighter. It's a great base under gloss and good for keeping some color when you're eating/drinking. I'm out of the sample and will buy a full size.

Great choice

I liked it a lot, my skin is dry so this product worked pretty good and I can feel my skin hydrated. It is great for retouching make up in the afternoon or those days you are in a hurry and there is no time for a normal make up process.

Nice product

Good color, pretty bright but not unnatural-looking, doesn't bleed or feather. It also fades naturally, without getting all light inside your lips but staying dark on the edges, and I like that I don't have to think about it moving once I put it on.

Rubs off in less than two minutes

I was so excited to find this in my Birchbox because I had heard so many great things about it. However, I was very disappointed in the product.

Love this simple stain

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!

The Best Lipstain Ever!

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!

Great for cheeks

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.

FUN

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.
