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.

Nice packaging!

But this lip stain doesn't taste great. It was effective for how long it lasted and it didn't dry out my lips but I didn't like how it tasted on my lips.

Great product!

I love how light and smooth this is --no caking at all. Easy refresh and no mirror needed. I can't wait to purchase a full size tube of this lip stain.

A grab and go essential

Huge fan of cheek and lip stains, best item to have when you want a quick flush of color. It's a great color for everyone.

Great Lip Stain
Sampled

I don't typically wear much lip stuff so this is a nice alternative for something subtle. Goes on easy and has a slight hint of pink.

Lovely shade and staying power
Sampled

Such a pretty tint!! You do have to be rather quick when rubbing it in, especially if it's on your cheeks, but as long as you're paying attention it's no problem :)

Good color for lips
Sampled

I liked this product more as a lip stain then as a cheek stain. It was a little more red then I would have liked for a cheek stain. Overall, its a nice product.

Pretty color

Works well on lips, not so much on cheeks. The color is great for light skin tones.

Looks beautiful at first, but doesn't last
Sampled

I wore this stain on both my cheeks and lips and it looked so amazing when I first put it on, but I felt it had no lasting power. Halfway through the day I was already looking drab.

The lip color is great, and the product goes on easily and smoothly. It gives a long lasting natural look.

strange texture
Sampled

I really like the idea of this product. The problem was both the color and the texture. I didn't care for it. Having said that, the little place I swatched on my hand stained well enough that I had to wash my hands twice, so it has great staying power :)
