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.

Gave a nice hint of color without being too much. Was concerned trying in on my cheeks at first, but spread nicely

LOVE IT!!
Sampled

I've been looking everywhere for a product like this. I absolutely love it! Highly recommended if you want that touch of color to the lips. It leaves an ever so slight blush tint.

Just what I've been looking for
Sampled

I don't use it on my cheeks, mostly because it looks so good on lips and i don't want to waste it! Layers of great color that lasts- truly a stain.

What a great stain!
Sampled

This product lasts through food, breakfast lunch and dinner for me. I absolutely love having the color without having to reapply every hour to keep looking nice. Even just a little chap stick over the top makes this product look amazing on my lips. It dries and soaks in quickly though, so apply carefully. I can't wait to try this out on my cheeks!

Love the color. Stain last long and does not wear off easily. Wish it came in more colors.

The perfect stain
Sampled

I don't usually use stains, but I loved this. It goes on very smoothly- no sticky mess. And it stays on for hours. The color was very rich and natural.

LOVED THIS
Sampled

This is such an awesome product. The color can range from subtle to a very nice pop depending on how many applications you apply. It dries so quickly and is not sticky or thick in the least. It goes great under gloss or as a stand alone. I loved it as a blush as well, so subtle and pretty and easy to apply!

I love that one little tube is so multi functional! It can be used for lips and making rose cheeks! Thanks for introducing me to this product.

Great Product
Sampled

This is a great lip/cheek stain. Although I have never used a product like this before I liked trying the sample. The color was great and perfect as a lip stain for me. I am not adventurous enough to try it as a cheek stain yet.

Too bright

This product was great for my lips... but for my cheeks? Not so much. I looked sunburned.
