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.

I have a stockpile of this stuff just in case...

This is hands down my favorite lip product on the market. To the point that I have 4 unopened boxes of it in my vanity since I am super paranoid it will be discontinued. There is nothing else quite like it since most stains go on thick and the second you apply a gloss they get gooey. Not this though! It is is a liquid stain that is the perfect shade of red (I use Beauty Queen) and you can put gloss right over it!

I love the way this blended so effortlessly. And with my light/ medium olive complexion it was the PERFECT COLOR.

Didn't like the color, the texture, the way it felt on my lips, or the way it dried out my lips. Don't get this product

Light and pretty

Although it doesn't stay on long, this was light and the shade would match most skin types.

Great lip stain
Sampled

I am currently using this product every day and I love it. It gives you a Matte finish and the color is the perfect tone to look natural. It lasts around 3 hours for me (after drinking coffee in the morning and talking in meetings) so pretty good for a lip stain. It doesn't dry my lips which is a plus :)

It's easy to use and light enough, but can be made darker. I'm more of a minimalist, but will use to change up lip color from time to time.

I love this product, I usually used it on my lips I love it because it doesn't leave my lips crazy red or pink it just gives them some color and shine, I haven't used in my cheeks but I will do it soon probably
