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.

These stains are highly pigmented and I don't think they're very good for beginners. Very little room for error! Haha

Great color, but...
Sampled

I want to love this product so much. The color is absolutely stunning! Not dark but it makes me look like I just ate a lollipop (which is a great look in my mind). Only issue is I wish it lasted longer. Def lasts longer than a normal lipstick, but it could last longer since it is a stain.

Great color!

I love the color of this stain! It gives lips a natural, rosy appearance. I just wish it weren't so drying. This is not a product that I can use in the winter.

Nice sheer lip stain
Purchased

love that this is sheer and adds a nice tint of color. You can reapply for a deeper color or more dramatic look. I have not used on cheeks but I may have to try that out.

Love it!

This lip stain looks really dark in the tube, but when you put it on it gives you a hint of natural color. If I'm going out, I put a little lip gloss over it for a shiny look.

Looks natural

My sister purchased this product at Birchbox and wasn't a fan, so she gave it to me. I love it! It looks natural and is long lasting. I plan to purchase another tube when this one runs out.

Good quick color that lasts

I like the color this product gives my cheeks - it's perfect for minimal make-up days. I think it works better when it's not used over BB cream/foundation.

Love this product. The stain goes on really well and lasts all day. The color is just enough to notice without being flashy.
