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 lip stain

Love the long-lasting tint it gives to my lips and cheeks!

Non-sticky Cheek and Lip Stain
Sampled

The Stainiac sample introduced me to a product I had never tried before. I really like that that stain is not sticky and just absorbs into your skin quickly. It looks like an overpowering color, but it goes on lighter which was a nice surprise as well. Overall, I like it!

Dry Lips
Sampled

I love the color of this product but it leaves my lips feeling dry. If they could find a stain that moistened at the same time, I would be a happy camper.

Cheek Tint
Sampled

I liked this product only okay. It's a bit sticky to me for cheek us, but works well on lips. Unfortunately, I still prefer a similar product from another company especially since this doesn't have the best scent.

Pretty, but not long-lasting
Sampled

I loved the subtle shade, but wish something called a stain would last longer. It rubbed off all too easily.

Pretty nice stain
Sampled

I wouldn't say this stain blew my mind but it did work well and held for hours. I've used it as both a cheek stain and lip stain so far and have been pretty happy overall. I wish the formula went on a little less sloppy but using a fine lip brush helped. Overall, a good little stain. Perfect for on the go touchups.

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.

Goes on very smoothly but it just wasn't the color for me.
