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!

I usually do not like anything on my lips. This adds just enough color, and I don't even know it is there.

Great Stain
Sampled

I hate wearing lipstick and the feel of how thick it is on your lips. This Stainiac doesn't even feel like it's there and adds a nice hint to your lips. I really like that the color isn't overbearing and seems natural combined with it's light feel it's a great combination.

going to buy this!!

Absolutely loved this product. I have used it every day since receiving it in my Birchbox. I use it on my cheeks rather than my lips and it makes them a nice pink color.

This is a nice subtle lip stain. It has a nice pink color and lasts awhile.

Great Color, Bad texture
Sampled

I loved the color of this product very much! But after a couple of minutes the lip gloss started to clump on my lips and come off. The taste and smell are tolerable but the color won't stay on.

This is a very good product for those who are olive complected. Those who are naturally rose complected would only benefit if the product is used for lips only.

It's "OK"
Sampled

I used this product on my cheeks. It 's very sheer. Starts light and builds as you add more. I did not wash my face for 2 days and it was still there...stained. It was a strange gel/clump consistency. It does have a drying effect on your lips but it will not come off till it is washed off.

Not Sure About this on
Sampled

i love the idea of a lip stain because i hate re applying. this however doesn't do the trick. the product is a little too light. i don't think it stains my lip to any color. doesn't work very well.

Subtle color that lasts all day!
Sampled

I absolutely LOVED this. It was a very subtle color, but could be amp-ed up by just applying a heavier coat, it was weightless but yet the color lasted ALL day. It was awesome.
