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. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink.

Can't see it!

I put it on twice and could not even see the stain on my lips. It's more of a lipgloss than a stain.

Good lip stain
Sampled

Long lasting lip stain. It's thin, so even though it's a bright color, it looks natural and just gives your lips a pop of color.

Didn't last
Sampled

Liked the color and feel. Didn't bleed into lines around my lips, but didn't last very long. Sample size was so tiny, hard to get product out...perhaps 4 applications. I would not buy again.

pleasantly surprised
Sampled

I have always been nervous about trying a stain, but I loved this! It didn't look over the top or goopy and kept my lips looking bright and fresh all night without having to reapply. I always prefer to do up my eyes and therefore don't use lipstick a lot. This was a perfect subtle way to make my smile fresh and healthy looking without being overdone.

Stains are perfect for me because I don't like having to reapply lipstick for color and I don't like the goopiness of lipgloss. It is really hard to find a good stain but this is the best I have tried so far. Very easy to apply and spread the color. And I love that the color goes on evenly.

yey

This is a great gloss with nice color density. It stays put. It does not have a horrendous aftertaste like so many do. It has no odor. It does not turn into a sticky mess.

Just the right amount of color
Sampled

I've been very happy with this product. I generally prefer a stain to a gloss or most lipsticks because of the more natural look and feel. This stain goes on evenly (I've used some where the color appears patchy, darker in some places than others) and provides just the right amount of color saturation. I was a bit unsure of the color (Beauty Queen) just from seeing it in the tube, but it goes well with my fair skin.
