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.

The balm seems to be everywhere right now. I prefer stainiak over benetint because the jelly consistency leaves you more time to spread the product and dries to a more even color. The color itself isn't my favorite (id prefer a coral) but all in all its great

Not very effective
Sampled

This stain is surprisingly not very pigmented. Used as a cheek stain, but it's barely noticeable.

Didn't stain very well
Sampled

I used this product on my lips and cheeks. With use of other products I found this product did not stain my cheeks very well. It did give some color to my lips but it did not stay. Wouldn't recommend this product.

At first the texture was a strange jelly consistency but once I swirled the wand around it was fine. Great color for the lips.

Nice lip and cheek stain

I really like this product. It feels a bit cool when you first put it on. It has a very nice color that goes on pretty sheer, just like a stain.

New go to lip color

I'd never tried a lip stain before, but I'm completely sold. It adds the perfect amount of color for everyday wear and doesn't rub off.

Nice Lip Stain
Sampled

Thanks to BirchBox I have found a new love for lip stains! This one is really cool because you can use it on your lips like I like to do, or on your cheeks to add extra color. It is really subtle and has a nice texture that doesn't dry out your lips. Over all I really like this product.

Wonderful :)

I absolutely love it. I use it mostly as a lip stain, but it looks well as a blush on my fair skin.
