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.

Great product! Smooth and easy to apply. Color just too deep for my taste.

Not sticky or glossy - feels very natural
Sampled

I really liked this product. I never wear lipstick or lip gloss because I hate the glossy feeling, but this product is great and doesn't leave you feeling like you are wearing anything.

Wow

This dries almost instantly so you have to be quick and accurate. I'm not one to use lip products but if I used a stain this would be my go to one.

Nice stain
Sampled

This was a very nice lip stain unfortunately I'm not very fond of stains because I feel as if they get all over after application.

Nice flush.
Sampled

The water base of this stain was perfect. The color left was a nice shade or two darker than my natural lip color. The texture after drying was slightly tacky, which left something to be desired.

Not my favorite but not bad
Sampled

This lip stain was in a color I don't really like and I did not like the way it felt when applied. The amount of color it gave was subtle which I like, but I don't wear a lot of lip color so I wouldn't purchase a full-size of this product because I wouldn't end up using it.

Love it
Sampled

I really love this lip stain! It puts a nice color on your lips and lasts for a good while. It does not make my lips feel dry once it has set.

Beautiful color. Goes on very sheer but way to build up.
