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.

Lovely tint
Sampled

I love the simple tint that this product gives my lips. I love that I also can use it as a blush tint. This product gives my lips a slight cooling effect which I enjoy. I was looking for light products for the spring and summer, which I think this will be perfect for.

Great stain.

Stays on really well and is a great color. My sil isn't much for lips and she refused to give hers up. I knew it was good then.

Great little on the go product!

I really found this product to be helpful in a pinch. If you need some color quick it is very useful. It was a big hit with my daughter as well. My only complaint is that it was a little sticky on the lips but tolerable for a little color that lasts longer than most lip sticks. I really liked it!

Decent color/ easy to apply
Sampled

The shade I received as a sample was a little brighter than I would normally use. Color was durable for about a couple hours then had to reapply. Was easy to apply and worked on eyes too.

Good but not long lasting
Sampled

This product is a good short term lip stain and cheek color. The color was lighter than I expected which created a nice subtle tint. My only problem, as such with most lip stains, the color did not last very long.

Love it and everything about it. I really liked the gel formula as it made it easier to apply instead of the usual liquid.

Great lip stain. The color is perfect, not too dark like a lot of lip stains. Very wearable year round.

Natural & Easy
SampledPurchased

I love this stain! I live in Arizona, am a massage therapist, and a minimalist with face makeup. I love the natural color boost this gives without being heavy or fake-facey. Great texture, blends flawlessly, no funky chemical smell.

not a fan

This product is really drying on my lips. It makes my lips look unflattering. I think I will stick to chapstick, gloss or lipstick products.
