theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac® Lip and Cheek Stain

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.

This product was a really loser for me. I couldn't blend it fast enough and ended up looking like a clown

I have tried this several times and each time I'm confused by its cult status. Maybe it's my skin tone but I really don't care for the feel as you put it on, either. Much prefer Tarte's cheek stick in 'Dollface', Stila's convertible color in 'Lillium', or IT Cosmetics Vitality Flush Stain Stick.

Loved the idea and the wand, but it was way to dark for my light skin.

This was just too over the top for me - the color was ALL wrong and it was a HUGE pain to get off. I guess that would be a plus if you liked it!

It was not easy to blend on face and it was hard to remove.

This one just isn't for me. I didn't like the texture when applying and I don't like the final look

I wanted to love this because I love the idea of a multitasking product but I just hated it. I did not like the texture or consistency of the product it feels very jelly like and sticky. I felt like it didn't give a lot of color either, even after several layers. On the cheeks it felt very sticky and my face felt gross. I won't be purchasing this.

MAKEUP
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar


Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar


WHAT IT IS:
A peachy pink cream blush with moisturizers
HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS:
The cream comes in a mirrored compact and goes on opaque but can be blended to a sheer, dewy finish.
WHY WE LIKE IT:
This blush contains ceramides and antioxidants to deposit moisture in addition to a pretty wash of color. It melts into skin without fading or accentuating pores or fine lines. The shade is a mix between peach and brown in the pan, but the pink undertones come through on the skin—cheeks look pretty and flushed.
