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.

So sad!

I have been wanting to try Stainiac for years--and I'm so glad I never bought it because I don't like it! I'm a huge Benetint fan and was hoping this would work just as well, but I found it really difficult to blend on my cheeks. The color is nice, but I end up with more of a line than I want. I'll keep playing with it, but I'm really disappointed because I was sure I'd love it!

Great lip color
Sampled

I am extremely picky when it comes to lip color, but I absolutely love this product. It just gives the right amount of color to make you look natural and fresh, doesn't look fake or made up at all. I just wish that it stayed on better, you have to reapply quite frequently.

Simple cover!

Just enough color for me! It's not thick and it glides on smoothly.

Gives the perfect amount of color
Sampled

This gives my pale lips the perfect amount of color when I don't want to wear a full color lipstick.

sticky/streaky application
Sampled

i am used to using Benetint, so was excited to give this a try. I found the application to be streaky and too sticky, did not look like a natural flush at all until I worked it in/around for quite a while, by then I think it only looked good b/c I had worn most of it off into my fingers. this is going to be a pass.

even when the lipstick layer wears off, you are left with a natural pink sheen. Great for long nights!

I love this lip tint. The red color is just perfect, very sheer, so it is just a hint of color. Glides on wonderfully & is very smooth. Fantastic!

I absolutely loved this product. A two-in-one product is great for on the go. I've already used my whole sample and I'm ready to buy the full size product!

This is an interesting product. I've tried something similar but didn't like it. I still don't prefer it but it wasn't as over powering as I expected.
