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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Perfect lip tint

I am not big on lipstick or gloss, but love to have some color on my lips. This product is the perfect medium - it colors my lips, but doesn't get in the way of my life. Will definitely be purchasing :)

Not impressed
Sampled

Maybe it's because I have so many lip gloss samples, but this product did nothing for me. The shade does not match how it applies and it felt sticky.

Not glossy
Sampled

This product is a nice shade, but it dries up on my lips so fast. I like a lip gloss that is a glossy product to stay on my lips for a while; I felt like this absorbed into my lips as soon as I put it on.

great lip stain
Sampled

Love this lip stain. I have dark skinned and this stain leaves a gorgeous shade of red on my lips. It is build-able for amount of color wanted. I put this on under my moisturizing lip balm and it looks like I have an expensive lip gloss on.

This is not a product I would use, but my daughter liked it. i already have a long wear lip color I like so this is not for me.

great stain
Sampled

this is a great color, consistency, and staying power. I love that on days where I just want a pop of color to my face i can just throw this on, and not worry about touching it up really and can use lip balm ontop of it

feels like you have nothing on....rosy goodness
Sampled

I tried this product on both my cheeks and lips. I didn't notice any color when using it as a blush. However, it gave me a really nice rosy hue on my lips. It felt watery when applying but then immediately dried on my lips and felt like I had nothing on. Will definitely consider buying in the future. Wish the sample was a bit larger so I could test it out a bit longer though.

Loved it!

I wore a gloss over this stain and of course that wore off quickly. I was pleasantly surprised to see after a night out the stain was still holding strong without being overwhelming
