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.

Best stain!

The product works quickly and effectively. You can use it for any thing from a light tint to full on deep staining. It does not run and last for hours. Great for on the go.

Even the name is great! I love the fresh look and feel of this stain. I've used on lips and cheeks and will always have this product in my bag of tricks. It leaves the perfect subtle flush wherever u put it and lasts and lasts!! One of my favorite Birchbox finds.

Great!

I loved the color and how it lasted a long time. It was nice that you could do one layer for a more natural look or layer it to make it a little more dramatic. The only problem I had with it was that I had to apply it throughout the day and it didn't really last long.

Like the color,but lips are dry

I wasn't sure about this one. I love a good lip stain and the shade of this one is really rich but a good pop of a redish/pink color. Since some of the liquid is clear, it was hard to see if I was applying it properly to my lips. Once I applied, I really liked the look, but my lips were dry.

Stainiac not all that
Sampled

First time in a while of using a lip stain. I loved the color in the tube and I couldn't wait to use it! I started putting it on and I had to two or three coats for the coverage I wanted. Sadly it only last about an or so and it dried out my lips. I was truly disappointed in this product.

No color on me

I liked this product, however whenever I tried to use it as a cheek stain, the color doesn't seem to show up well enough. Maybe it is just my complexion not working well with the product.

Neat product!

This lip stain was very easy to use! It was a fun sample but the color was a little too red for my personal taste- the product worked well though!

Like the brand

I liked the stain, but wasn't my color. Seems like it would be great for me in a different color as it has a nice texture.

Too Sheer for Me
Purchased

I've tried several stains and rose type tints over the years. I'm always looking for something natural looking and long lasting for hiking and other outdoors activities. This product was to sheer for my taste and not al all long lasting. I also think the tube won't last as long as the other brand that comes in a small bottle. I've had one of those for ages and not used it up.

This is the best lip color I have ever used it works the best when cover with lip balm. It stays on your lips for few hours.
