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.

Dried Out Very Quickly
Sampled

I am a big fan of lip stains and was excited to get this in the birchbox. Unfortunately it dried out super quick and I didn't get more than 2 uses out of it :(

Great stuff
Sampled

I've only used this on my lips and I love it. It really stays put and the tint is just right, not too sheer and not too pigmented.

Love
SampledPurchased

I got this as a sample in a box a while ago and have been buying it ever since. It stays on for a really long time and you can decide how dark or light you want it to be. By applying more coats you can get a really rich color or you could just put on one or two coats for a light tint. It's fantastic!

My New Favorite
Purchased

This is the perfect tint and weight for a natural look. It tints without overwhelming and as it wears away it doesn't leave any kind of a funky patchy look. A tiny dab on the cheeks leaves a nice light blush.

Amazing

This product is amazing. Im not one to really wear lip stick so this is perfect for me. Its a mix between a chapstix and a stain. Love it.

Light application, really nice color when applied, lasts all day, and is easily removed at the end of the day.

Like the weight and color of this product but it does hold the color on my face very long.
SampledPurchased

I like this product but the color does not seem to stick around on my face very long. Makeup seems to diminish on my face quickly anyway but this does not hold color as long as thicker blush.
