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.

Fun dual product
SampledPurchased

Great for low maintenance - on the go with small bag day. Lip stain and cheek enhancer all in one product. It looks very red in container, but is very subtle on skin. Nice sample size.

For the younger crowd

I gave this sample to my daughter after I tried it first. It was more for her skin tone than mine.

It's fine, but...

Stainiac was fine but a little watery. It "dried" up quickly too. Not really for me.

I love the color and the dual purpose. It's just a hint of color which is perfect for me. Awesome!

Not worth it

This lip/cheek stain is just ok. As a cheek stain it works fine. As a lip product I thought the texture was too thin to be an effective gloss and just slid right off without imparting any color or moisture benefits.

Looks very natural and lasts! This is my first time using this product and I am very pleased. I will order this in the future. Would like to be able to try the different shades to determine my perfect stain.

Great Cheek Stain
Sampled

The product works wonderful as a lip stain. I recommend several layers to make it more pronounce.
As far as it goes with being used as a cheek stain – Excellent. Great rush of color for the cheeks. Not to heavy in color and texture is nice as well

This was my first time using a lip stain and I was pleasantly surprised. It is a nice deep pink color and lasted throughout my morning. I will be purchasing this product.

I wasn't expecting the constancy to be so jelly, however I would still recommend it. It's not an overpowering stain, and I love it.
