June Sneak Peek: A Long-Wearing, Super Flattering Lip & Cheek Tint

Though we don’t like to dwell on the weather, it’s been remarkably gloomy in the Big Apple these past few days, and we’ve been coping with colorful, long-lasting makeup. Today’s winner: theBalm’s Stainiac, which—surprise!—many of our members will be receiving this month. The two-in-one lip and cheek stain comes in three very wearable shades, with our favorite being Beauty Queen, a deep berry. The gel-packed wand deposits a pretty, buildable tint and livens up wan complexions. 

The cool thing about Stainiac is that since it’s water-based, it takes longer to dry than conventional stains and gives you more time to blend. No streaking! Once it’s set, it will hold up even when you’re braving a torrential thunderstorm armed with only an umbrella and your cab-waving skills. 

We gave the stain to three different staffers to see how it looked in real life—click through to see how they wore it!
