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.

Nice lip stain
Sampled

I'm not exactly a big fan of a lot of lip stains. However this one is my fave so far. I like it better than the Benefit brand lip stain me cause it goes on creamier and doesn't make my lips very chapped. And when my lips do get slightly chapped it doesn't stain in between the chapped cracks and make the color uneven like other lip stains will often do.

very nice subtle stain
Sampled

I am pleasantly surprised by this product. The color is just enough to be noticeable without being obvious. The lasting power is amazing. I use it on my lips as I haven't quite figured out how to use it on cheeks.

I love a product that can serve more than one function. This is great for cheeks and lips. Makes it a great product to toss in your purse or in your travel bag!

Awesome Color

I love how nice this strain is. The taste is awful, but the color goes on nice and lighter than one might think. Great for just some color

I would love to find a good lip stain that I could use for everyday use. This product was good, just not a good color for me. I liked how it stayed on even when I would apply lip gloss over it. I think I'll check out the price of this product and depending on price try a different color.

I have a hard time with lip products. Especially with trying to get the right color. This lip stain worked wonders. I absolutely loved it!

I really, really like it to give some color to my cheeks, it's very light and very natural looking, absolutely weightless. I do not like it on my lips. It makes my lips feel dry and it barely gives a tiny bit of color, almost nothing. I will probably buy it (but not for the lips).

I loved the color, and the fact it doesn't feel as sticky.
