lip and cheek stain
The results are neutral. Overall, Stainiac cheek and lip stain is good. We like the dual purpose. It leaves a hint of color as both a blush and lip shade. Don't be intimidated by the color in the bottle. It goes on lighter and sheerer than it appears in the container. It looks redder or pinker depending upon the lighting.
|The Balm, Stainiac, Lip and Cheek Stain|
We're not a fan of applying anything drying to the cheek area. The 'hint' of color isn't worth it. Maybe we just don't completely understand the stain concept because it seems easy to apply blush and lipstick. Again, the dual purpose of Stainiac is nice, but we're not sold. We would purchase two products we already like to do the job better.
The great part of receiving a smaller size of theBalm Stainiac is that it's perfect for the travel bag or desk drawer cosmetics bag. It will be used again, but not likely in it's entirety.
