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.

Product looks dark in the packaging but is very light when applied. Perfect to add a hint of color to your everyday look.

hint of color lip gloss
Sampled

I really like this product. Its great while it is on. It is such a hint that you cant see it for long, however I like it so much I would just continue to reapply. I would definitely but this stainiac.

I didn't like the consistency of this product. I found it sticky and not right for me!

Great addition
Sampled

I really like using this product. It makes a great addition to normal routine on days you want to switch it up! It would be nice if it had a little more staying power, though.

best stain out there!
Sampled

I love this product and have been a fan for years. The stains are gel-like, so they don't run and create lines like the tint from the other popular brand. The container also has a doe-foot applicator, which I much prefer over brushes for lip products. I have tried many stains, and this one is my favorite. It is more controllable during application, it is more buildable, it doesn't move, it lasts longer, and it's less drying than all the others. Also, the packaging and the formula make it much easier to carry in a purse or pocket and be able to use on the fly if needed.

Subtle color on lips
Sampled

I prefer my powder blush, so I've only used this product as a lip stain. The color is pretty subtle on my lips, and takes more than just a swipe of product to achieve that. It doesn't have huge staying power, but is a nice addition in my morning routine to get a base of color on my lips.
