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.

Subtle Lip Color

I do not generally wear lipstick, just a tinted gloss. I really like the subtle color of this stain. It did dry quickly on the lips (and cheeks) and stayed for a few hours. It's one I would keep in my purse for a quick touch up.

I really liked this product on my cheeks... However it is described to work for both lips and cheeks. I would highly recommend to NOT use on your lips. It does not feel, look, or taste good.

Perfect Color!
Sampled

This lip stain goes on smooth and it doesn't dry your lips out. It is the perfect shade, you can apply layers for a brighter richer color or just one layer for that flirty just ate a strawberry lollipop look! the sample size lasts forever!

So Versatile
Sampled

I loved this stain!! I do not like to spend hours doing my make-up so anything that has multiple uses is GLADLY welcome. This stain is lovely on lips ( and does't dry them out like many others do), but is also perfect for a light glow on the cheeks. Definitely something everyone should have in their bag of tricks!

Love the idea!
Sampled

I love the idea of this product. The check coverage is perfect. The lip coverage made my lips a little dry but did stay put for a few hours. Was not a fan of this particular color. Overall a good product.

Nice stain on lips.
Sampled

I thought this gave a subtle stain to my lips. I wasn't crazy about the color I received, but I did like how it went on smooth and sank into my lips. Would purchase in a different shade.

Very subtle
Sampled

I like the product, just not a fan of the color. I normally go for something a little more noticeable, but it is nice if you just want to add a little bit of color. I also only tired it on my lips - kind of freaks me out that it can go on your cheeks as blush too..
