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.

OK, but not my favorite
Sampled

I like the product in a pinch, but I just don't like the idea of using the same thing on my lips and cheek and I much prefer powder blushes.

Very nice.
Sampled

I like the fact that it goes on light. It did not make my lips a bright color but instead blended with my natural color to make them pop out a bit . I did not even feel like I was wearing any lip gloss. It just glides on smoothly.

love it!
Sampled

I have only used it on my lips but I truly loved this product. It really does stain the lips and last quite a while, much longer than lipstick. I have very fair skin and need all the color I can get.

Perfect Rosy Flush
Sampled

I really liked this stain, it has a more gel consistency than a lot of stains so it is easier and more forgiving to use. The taste of it on my lips wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't awful. I liked that it didn't seem to dehydrate my lips either. A very easy product to use that does what it says it will!

Not Long Lasting
Sampled

I like the idea of using it on cheeks and lips, but in the end I felt the color was too dark for my cheeks and I wasn't crazy about the feel of it on my cheeks. The color was good, not too dark and it went on well for my lips. But it doesn't seem to last long enough.

Color Too Subtle
Sampled

I like to have a subtle color on my lips but I need to be able to tell that there is something on my lips. With this product I couldn't really see a difference in my lip color after I applied it. I did like that it didn't make my lips sticky or greasy.

Lip stain
Sampled

This lip shade is just not for me. I don't like the red lip nor can I pull it off. If you are looking for a lip stain than this product would be for you.

stained on my heart!

I'd never tried these type of product before and I was so excited to try it. I was thrilled with how nice it looked and how long it lasted!

Good for "no makeup" look
Sampled

This provides a nice, super natural looking tint, but it doesn't seem to last very long.
