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.
This was a really nice product, but not what I currently would fit into my routine.3
I never thought I'd love a cheek stain, but this is great! It's the perfect level of sheer to give a natural blush, and not look like I smeared jelly on my face. Blends in perfectly with my drugstore BB cream.5
As much as I like the idea of a stain on my cheeks, this product doesn't blend as well as a creme and draws attention to any imperfection. Disappointing because I was hoping it would be a hit. I will keep it in my gym back though!3
This goes on great at first, and leaves the right amount of a tint of color. The bad part is once applied and only a few minutes later your lips are left feeling sticky and feeling dried out.3
I think that this is a great product for someone who really enjoys a bold lip. Even for a stain, it was too intense for me. Did not seem to come off on my mug or a napkin...3
I absolutely love this product. Perfect consistency and color. Perfect for the low key girl.5
theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac love that you can put on your lips for a quick stain giving your lips more color. can be used for blush just to give your cheeks that extra glow.
best product I have ever been introduced to
I love the texture for this lip stain. I've had difficulty in the past with stains that are thin liquid and brush on getting it in the right spot on thin lips. This one is thicker and has a nice lip gloss applicator. Simple, bold, red lips!4
I did try this product but I was not really enthused about it for myself. If someone is looking for a very light tint, this is for them. Usually if I apply something to my lips, I would want it to have more of a color payoff.3
I was excited to get the Stainiac sample to try but was very disappointed. No color at all on my lips and not noticeable on my cheeks, either. Definite no on this one.1
