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.

bad tasting lipstick stain
Sampled

I was curious to try the product but I did not care for it. I accidently licked it and it tasted bad.

Seriously obsessed
Sampled

When I initially saw the color of this tint I was worried that it would be too dark but on my cheeks it was a sheer rosy color and not too dark at all. I absolutley loved the tint on my lips! The gel was easy to slide around to spread the color and again it wasn't too vibrant. My favorite part is that the color really lasts! And unlike lipstick it won't rub off on your teeth!

Not Effective
Sampled

I've never been one to use lip stains and this proves I'm not a fan. There wasn't a big difference when using it on my lips or cheeks. I didn't like the consistency and will stick to lip gloss or lip stick.

I've never used a lip stain before so I was hesitant, but this brand is fantastic. It looks natural

Pretty, rose gel stain for lips and cheeks
Sampled

I enjoyed the texture of this product for lips and cheeks. There's plenty of time to blend it in before it sets and you can build the color up nicely. Lasted 4-5 hours on lips and all day on cheeks

Light stain without feeling dried out
Sampled

I've used other lip stains before and they've left my lips feeling very dry, or like I definitely have product on there and it will crack at any moment. Staniac doesn't do that - it goes on easily, doesn't overstain or come out too bright, and is absorbed into your lips so it doesn't create that dry feeling. I received a sample in my January Birchbox. Great sample size and once I run out, I'll probably purchase it!

LOVE this stain
Sampled

I had just bought a full size lip stain from a competing brand, that doesn't add up to this at all! it is also so much more easier to apply than the product I just purchased. when im finished with the product I just bought I will be purchasing this!
