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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Works great on both lips and cheeks
Purchased

This is especially great if I don't want to look like I am "trying" to look pretty or want a more natural look. It makes my lips and cheeks look a "healthy pink" without anyone knowing I'm wearing makeup!

Love the color; lasts through the party

I love this product for the times I want to step it up for a night out. The color is nice and lasts through chatting, snacking, and sipping drinks. Find it is less drying if you put on some chapstick a few minutes before applying, and it can be layered to deepen the color.

Great idea, weird taste

I've never tried a stain before and I liked how multi-faceted this product is - lips, cheeks, etc. It has a super weird and unpleasant taste for the lips and you'd have to use a lot of it to make much difference on the lips. I think it worked better as a blushing device - but stains your fingers when you blend it.

I just love this stuff for my lips. It gives them a red look. I LOL think that I have stained my lips.

Interesting product

I like that this product is not heavy and that I care wear chap stick over it, as I tend to be more of a chap stick girl. I haven't tried it on my cheeks and don't think I will attempt it.

Lovely

The color looks a little alarming in the tube, but it a light blush once on. Love the dual aspect of lips and/or cheeks. Works really well under chapstick or a clear gloss. A new staple for me

faint color

I really wanted to like this product because I like the idea of it acting as two for one. It barely showed up on my lips and felt slightly sticky on my cheeks.

Nice, subtle stain

This is a great stain for pale skin. Nicely pink, and not runny like benetint. It goes on like a lipgloss, but dries like a stain, and I don't even have to look to put it on!

Lovely and Flexible Product

Surprisingly, I loved the color of this product. It looked super bright in the tube, and I'm typically not a bright kinda girl. So I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on my lips and it was a pinky color and very sheer! Gives the perfect amount of color without looking too "made up." It did well on the cheeks too, although I prefer it for lips.

stain didnt last

great color but the stain didnt last any longer than my revlon stain- plus my revlon stain has a balm with it so my lips feel better- the color looks great (tried beauty queen) just wish it would have stayed a little longer - didnt try on my cheeks
