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.

For the first couple of uses on this product I did not like. It felt and went on like water. However once I noticed how the color would last the whole day I quickly changed my mind and is now a favorite of mine. I have a very pale, light skin tone and it gave me just the right shade of pink on my lips and cheeks. Will buy a full size bottle in the future.

Good product
Sampled

Good product but too dark for my fair skin. I can't use reds. I'd use it if it had been pink or Nude.

Really nice!
Sampled

Perfect for a "no/low make-up" look. Gives a little bit of color and has a pleasant smell. It was a little drying but a touch of gloss on top takes care of that.

I absolutely love Stainiac! The product delivers exactly what it says it does! It was light, flawless, and I was able to layer the stain for a darker look if I chose to. Stainiac also has staying power with water activities, drinking, snacking, and kisses on the cheek. Thank you!

works okay

wasn't really my favorite but I liked the color. I don't really use stain that much. The product didn't really show on my lips.

thing and gooey
Sampled

I have oily skin and break out easily so I am hesitant to use this on my skin. It is very thick and gooey. I have used it on my lips. I liked the color but again noticed how thick it was.

This product is a great stain that goes on easily,stays on, and doesn't smudge all day.
