theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

You wouldn’t know it from the state of our makeup drawer, but we’re actually beauty minimalists. 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, lasting tint on lips and cheeks. It has a longer setting time than most quick-dry stains, so it won’t leave unsightly streaks after you blend.

Nice tint of color

Nice tint of color. Not overwhelming like a lot of other stain products.

Love it! Highly recommended and deep red color. It's also a lip stain and a matte finish.

I have never been a fan of stains, but this one has changed me.

I look absolutely stunning in this. When I don't want to wear makeup, I just slap this on to give my face some life. So natural and perfect. Def worth the investment.

Looks darker but adds a nice cherry tint

I thought it would be a lot darker but it leaves a nice tint that isn't too dark. It does dry your lips a bit, so be sure to moisturize!

Perfect for the minimalist

Love love loved this lip/cheek stain I got in my bonus December birchbox!! It gives the perfect amount of color to your lips and cheeks all while looking extremely natural! It's perfect for someone on the go and not very into makeup like me! Gives me just enough oomph without looking like I put in too much work! Will definitely be buying the full size!

It did add color to lips but it was a bit warm on the lips.

Amazing

I love this product! I got it as a sample and I will definitely be purchasing. It's so simple and you only need a little bit. It takes a couple seconds to apply and it looks like you're wearing lipstick! I apply chapstick after I use it. The color is amazing and it stays on all day!

stainiac

This was an interesting product to try. When I saw it in my Birchbox, the first thing I thought of was another brand's stain product. I think they are very similar products, but their texture is entirely different. The other brand's stain product is very liquid whereas this is more of a gel almost. I like this consistency as I felt it was easier to apply. This looked way too bright on my lips, but it was natural looking on my cheeks. Probably not a purchase for me, but I was glad to try it.

Great color, great stay

Stainiac is a great product to use if you are looking for a deep hue on lips or cheeks! Can congeal a little if you don't use it right away.
