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.

Meh

I got this in my birchbox and used it a few times, but the sheerness of it doesn't make a noticeable difference in my already lip color. I guess I just needed a different hue, but I think I will stick with benetint.

for my quick makeup days
Purchased

I've found Stainiac perfect for when I'm in a hurry and use it to wrap up my "natural" or rushed makeup days to give my lips a kiss of color. Sometimes my powder makeup gets on my lips and don't always have time to clean it up so let Stainiac let me get on my way.

Love it!
Purchased

I have honestly never bought the same blush twice because I can never find something I like that lasts and is the right color. This stain does the trick! I absolutely love it. It lasts and adds the pop of color I am looking for.

Enough tint :D

This product was definitely useful if you wanted a little pink or red on your lips. For me it gave me just enough on my lips as a base for some of my everyday lip gloss. I would also wear it by myself and it would give my lips enough pink to compliment any other make up I had on as well. Definitely a product worth purchasing.

Meh

I like the concept and even the size of the product but I wasn't really amazed. It didn't do anything with my lips But turn them uneven red and dry. I won't be getting it but the idea is great

Just the perfect amount of color

I've always been more of a chapstick and ready to go kind of girl, I love this stain! It's a subtle color, but still adds that little bit that you need, and goes perfectly with my favorite chapstick on top of it!

Nice product, but Benefit does this better

Pretty color, nice stain...but I don't like the gel texture. I have the other tints, and I think they do the same job, but I like the texture more. I won't be purchasing this one again.

Lip Smack

This product works great especially if you like me and dont wear lipstick, just put it one with a lip gloss on top and you are set.

I like that it last a good amount of time with out having to re-apply every little bit. it does not make your lips feel or look dried out. really moist underneath it.

Builds up color

Loved this soft rosy color. Great for day and can build up for night. This product is so nice because it lasts a long time and doesn't come off when you kiss! I liked to add some sheer gloss or balm over it for additional moisture.

Very Cool

This is very versatile. Lips and cheeks. I carry it in my purse for the mid day touch ups. It works as a great stain. I have shared this with my friends.
