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.

Nice product

Nice stain. I used it on my lips. It didn't last as long as I would have liked.

I love that this stain gives you just enough color where it doesn't look like you're wearing anything. And it doesn't dry your lips out! This is my favorite one of all time

Easy and fun beauty extra

I use this all the time for a quick pick me up for my skin. Easy to apply and flattering on cheeks and lips. I use it under and over different lipsticks to to alter colors slightly. A favorite!

Great lip and cheek stain. Love the color (Beauty Queen). Perks up complexion. Makes me feel younger! Had to go in and get the full size. This is now on my favorites list!

I love this product!!

I don't wear much lipstick or lipgloss. I don't like that it leaves a colored and/or sticky residue on my cup or water bottle and my hair seems to get caught on my lips with these. I am a fan of "chapstick" type products to keep my lips soft, espcially working outdoors in the winter. You just don't find many good colors in chapstick however. This makes a great undercoat for my chapstick. I put it on and it dries very quickly. I can then apply my chapstick over it and get a nice natural boost of color. Can't wait to order a couple more so I always have one where ever I am!

mood ring lips

I enjoyed using this product and the light pinkish tint that it gave my lips. The only thing that was missing, I felt, is that this product did not feel consistently moist on my lips. It dries quickly and does not maintain that glossy or nourishing feel.

Weak

I've used other stains before and the pigment was much richer than this is. To get the intensity I wanted, I had to apply multiple coats and that just made my lips sticky. I made sure to not touch it for a while so it could really do the job staining, but it still ended up fading in middle of my lips. Not something I'll use in the future.

Great Lip stain
Sampled

This works really well for me as a lip stain. I can't get it to work well as a cheek stain but then maybe i'm not applying it right. I like that you can layer it. If you just want a hint of color, one layer is perfect, if you want more bold color just keep applying.
