theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

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.

This works really well!! I have very pale lips and it makes them look bright but natural for hours! The color could be more vibrant though

This is a stain that looks EXACTLY like Max Factors rosewater gel I used to use . They no longer make it and I have never found a product that's remotely the same.
This is it's doppelganger! So very happy with this purchase! You can layer it as well for a darker lip. New favorite!!!!

Stainiac is amazing. I love this stuff. I was a little hesitant at first. But I know that birchbox never steers me wrong. They hit a home run with you! Thank you

Sincerely,

don't care for this lip stain much at all, again red is just not me. I might like it in another color but not this one.

I'll pass I'm not a stain person. maybe if its a lighter shade but I keep getting red in things. I'm just not a red lipstick/lipgloss wearer.

I used this once once and it was pretty good. I did have a bit of trouble applying it that is why i gave it a less star.
