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.
The gel was uneven consistency in the container (perhaps it dried out?) which contributed to a rather uneven application on the cheeks -- color was patchy and it was difficult to even out. The color did not show on the lips and the product felt very drying.2
It doesn't stain my lips at all--couldn't see the color and it barely shows up on my cheeks either. Don't waste your money.2
I like the concept of the product, but I just didn't find it that easy to use. It always came out too blotchy for me on my cheeks, but it worked great for my lips.2
I tried using this as a cheek stain, but did not like the results. I have also used it as a lip stain and it turned out nicely, but didn't have much staying power. There are other products on the market that I would rather use that both moisturize and color my lips in one step.2
I found that the Stainiac did not provide much of a tint to my lips at all. Perhaps, it is more suited to someone with a fairer complexion. It worked a little better as a cheek tint, but not amazing enough for me to purchase. It is easy to apply.2
I think this could be a good product if i would have gotten a different color to sample. my skin tone is naturally red so the one i received definitely didn't compliment me well..
if anything i'll only use it for the lip gloss.. I'm also not really a fan of the gel, it didnt seem to apply evenly, the one thing i did notice is the staying power is amazing! i put on a tiny bit to my cheeks to try out and it lasted noticeably all day!
It didn't blend well on cheeks and was very bright and pinkish-red on cheeks and lips. It also didn't last through a meal, which my other lip stains do.2
The stain was a pretty color but did provide even coverage when applied. My results were similar to those shown in the photo posted to the blog in June...a little splotchy.2
This product just doesn't do it for me. I guess I am not a lip stain type of girl.2
Didn't care for the color or the texture of the stain! It didn't last long at all.2
