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.

Literally The best Cheek and Lip Color Ever
Sampled

OKay, so I love a little color in my cheeks or lips for every day, but I hate the consistency of traditional blush. I like this product WAY MORE on my cheeks than on my lips but it also works great as a lip stain. All other cheek tints that I have tried come in a almost foundation, or lip stick consitency. This is more liquid, and blends in far more easily than any product I have tried before. I want it in every color.

I love this lip stain. It is a great shade of pink! I love that you can build the color with more applications.

I loved this lip stain! It made my lips a pretty shade of red and it stayed on for a couple of hours!

Natural You Lip Stain

I liked that this product gave a hint of color- it gave a perfected natural look that is perfect for everyday use. And BEST of all- it left no residue, or stickiness, and went on even- which is hard to find in a lip stain.

I found it to be kind of sticky, and didn't like the smell/taste - also the color didn't last as long as I would like a stain to last. I did like the color and once the it dried all the way it wasn't as sticky

Such a great color! I've never used a stain before and I liked how this left color but I wasn't worried about it rubbing off. Would definitely use again.

Not my cup of tea

I've never used a product like this before so I tried it on my lips first. I wasn't crazy about it. I like products with more color, and I'm assuming there wasn't more color because you could use it on your cheeks.

Cute but not very visible

This was not the right color to use on my cheeks (I'm very fair), but not dark enough to make much of an impact as a lip stain.

I am loving this stain lipstick by Stainiac. It leaves a very natural hint of color and lasts for a long time. So far I have only used it for color on my lips. I have the lovely rose pink which is a great color.
