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.

Decent lip stain

The Staniac lip stain is a pretty enough color but I didn't feel that it really stayed on for very long. Perhaps I did not apply enough. But I would not buy this product again. It was fairly thin and did not last as long as one would expect a stain to last. Only about as long as a lip gloss

Not for me

This stain was a horrible color for me and went on too sheer. The stain also was not easily blended on my cheeks. I will not be purchasing this product.

I like it

I really think it l looks nice under a clear gloss, gives the effect of a longwear pink lip and I like that it's subtle on your cheeks, not too ridiculously pink.

I really liked this lip stain! It stayed on all night and dried very quickly. The color was subtle and pretty.

I have never used a product like this one, it was a new experience. It seemed to make my lips look fuller. I liked it, it just didn't seem to stay on long

This felt like I was smearing jello on my lips. Left a good color on my lips and loved it at first but my lips broke out with bumps every time I tried using it :-( bummer

This is great product! I love that the product feels like during application and adds just a hint of color. I don't want to wear too much color at work but also want to look polished, and this is the perfect tint for the job. The only issue is that the color isn't as long lasting as I would hope but it's an easy fix with reapplication.

Not Very Dark
Sampled

The stain was not very dark. I think it is meant to leave a more natural tint. I used a lot of product and only arrived at a light rose color.

good lip tint
Sampled

Only tested on lips. Sheer tint with buildable coverage. Didn't notice a lot of color at first, but after a second layer the color started to brighten up. like most tints, the color lasted through out the night, I only applied a refresher touch up to make sure the color stayed bright. I loved the color, looked great with my fair skin.
