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.

Cute lip stain

I really like this lip stain. It looks great and pretty natural for being bright pink. The only downside is that I wish it would last a little longer. It is a stain after all! I like that I can put it one when I'm wearing minimal makeup, adds a bit of color but doesn't look like I've got too much going on.

Runny and icky

Did not like this product At all! It provides zero moisture after application and hardly any color. Gave it away to my little sister as soon as I tried jr

very natural looking

This product is non-irritating to my sensitive skin and delivers a very natural look on the cheeks and lips. I can feel it on my lips, but it is not heavy or greasy.

Great product!

I love how this stays on and isn't sticky or flaky. I can put it on by itself and it looks great. You can build the color darker if you want to as well.

Not the shade for me

It's hard to comment on the formula and stay put power when the shade doesn't work for my skin time. I'm more of a neutral person so these bright reds are a shocker!

Decent Product

I like this product as a lip stain and gloss. I don't think it would make a good cheek stain for me because it's not powder based.

Great but don't use that often
Sampled

I really liked this product. I don't use it as often as I want to but it really like the effect it gives after using it. I would recommend it to people who want that subtle color without applying too much makeup.

Not perfect

I have fair skin and as a cheek stain.... Nothing. My lips leaves a pretty but soft color.

Perfect for a little pop!
Sampled

I've always had an issue with my lips fading into my face.. so I use tinted chap sticks. They've all worked fine, but they need constant reapplication. Stainiac is perfect for giving my lips a rosy tint that isn't noticeably different from natural pink lips. And if I want them darker, all I need to do is apply a little more!!
