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.

Love this as a lip stain and cheek stain
Sampled

The coloring of this product is great because it provides a pretty color on your lips while still looking natural. I don't use it as much a cheek stain but the times I have I used it when I'm not wear much make up and want some added slight color to my cheeks

Lip stain

Subtle, nice smell but didn't last too long. It was easy to come off when eating or drinking

Not a fan of stains...lip or cheek
Sampled

I don't really like stains as the color never looks right on me & it's hard to move the color once it's on your face...you can't blend a stain all that well. I don't currently use a stain and won't in the future.

Good Lip Stain
Sampled

A very good light weight lip stain (feels like water)! It takes time to soak in so if you get it in the wrong spot, you can fix it before it stains! It makes my lips the perfect pink.

Very mild.
Sampled

This is a great stain if you want one that doesn't pack much of a punch. I was looking for something that was noticeable, but maybe it's just that my lips are naturally pretty pink already. It's a very mild stain.

Sticky and Sweet
Sampled

I was excited to try this sample because of its dual functionality (works on cheeks and lips) but found that it was to sticky / sweet to add to cheeks and even too much for my lips

I never use cheek or lip stain, but was impressed with the wonders it did to my face and my look altogether after using.

Perfect Lip Stain
Sampled

This is the perfect lip stain! It dries quickly, it doesn't have a scent at all. I have red hair, and it still goes perfectly with my complexion which is hard to find! I love it!
