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.
I was really excited to try this one after watching the video on how to apply but when i did, I wasn't really happy with the result :(2
The color was a little too bright for me - I prefer neutrals. I don't feel like it stayed on very long, either.2
It gave pretty good color, but I didn't really care for the taste (not that I tasted that much of it, but when it's on your lips, you're going to get the taste in your mouth...)2
I found this to be very goopy and hard to get out of the bottle. When I did, it did not apply very smoothly.2
This felt great (light and cooling) going on unfortunately did not show up on me no matter how much I put on. And I am light skinned!2
It just isn't the right color for me, and it made my lips look a little garish. The cheek bit was better, but so subtle it wouldn't replace items I already have.2
For a stain, this did not last long. It also dried out my lips, so I applied lip balm over it. I did not try it on my cheeks because I do not wear blush.2
With the name "stainiac" you expect to get a lip stain... I'm an avid lipstick girl and I will not purchase any lip color that isn't long-wearing.... a name like this is very misleading for the product. I can't really tell when I have it on and there's very little color. I can dig the color on a t-shirt day, but it doesn't last so definitely not a must-have product. Great sample, but no plans to re-purchase.2
I wasn't a fan of this as a cheek stain. To me it felt sticky and hard to blend.2
This product is extremely sheer and does not show up, particularly if you have a darker skin tone. Plus, the pink tone is not universally flattering. You really have to put on a couple of layers to have the color show up on your face.2
